E1 Duo Pack

As we join ConVertor E1‘s with the MIDVertor E1 we get much more than the sum of those parts. Pitch tracking at its finest, human control, and features with digital communication far into the future. Shipped together pre-mounted on a unifying plate, pre-patched with the 4-pin header connection, and pre-configured, they act just like a single “super-synth-channel”, ready to plug and play.

Product description:

United by our 4-pin header digital connection, those two Eurorack modules make up the ultimate synth channel. Convert anything from audio to PITCH, ENV & GATE CV's, 1V/octave pitch output and a 1V/octave pitch input, Sustain to freeze pitch and/or other functions, expression pedal input can be automatically switched to expression function. Internal DCO can work as Audio Controlled Oscillator/VCO+preamp mode. Connect any number up to 7 units to add polyphonic operation, Parallel Audio to merge MIDI (MIDI 2.0 ready), audio to MIDI conversion, via ultra-fast custom firmware 48kH 16bit inputs, 32bit sound engine, compression and optional full synth voice with presets. 24bit audio DAC for the osc/synth output and the ENV CV output. Switchable to work in VCO mode where the pitch will be controlled from either 1V/oct pitch FM in while preamp stays independent with the ENV extraction.

4 pin header cable, pre-patched, MIDI to up to 6 VCO's, and CV's polyphony combinations are possible via Sonicsmith bus high speed, bi-directional control, and modulations. Preset recall & modulations for up to 6 parallel ConVertor E1's at once. Sustain/expression pedal input auto-sensing input adds sustain to gate CV or expression pedal to CV function. Sustain pedal to freeze pitch, expression to DCF as standard routing. Open-source firmware to encourage DIY programmers at C+ to make their own routing and configuration preset. Auto-sensing and switching to whichever pedal kind is connected to the pedal input. SD card for future and optional firmware updates. Easy flashing of all firmware via mini USB connection. That means one MIDVertor can flash all connected ConVertor E1's firmware, conveniently with one connection, so there is no need to disassemble the panels off to access flashcard individual Connected devices. One MIDVertor E1 can force firmware update to all it's possible 7 digital connections to additional E1 units.

Optional expansions options both in hardware and in software expected to ship around April 2021 like adding up to 7 ConVertor E1's to one MIDVertor E1 for polyphonic options and MIDI merging. Firmware 1.x is included and will get a lifetime of updates within the 1.x series of the firmware. Firmware in the 2.x series can be purchased to upgrade the internal sound engine to include full synth voice features like a sub voice, PWM, 3 LFO's, VCF, and many future enhancements with the same lifetime updates in the 2.x future. Firmware is updatable via SD card or remotely from a centralized MIDVertor E1. MIDVertor's firmware and the "Sonicsmith bus" UART 4-pin communication is open-source to invite the C++ community to customize or make up their own firmware to the MIDVertor hardware.
