This module lets you create both monophonic and polyphonic sequences to play your MIDI gear, all controlled by your cv and gate generating modular system.
The Iungo is in essence a CV to MIDI converter, but instead of acting as a direct translator, this module gives you voltage control of the MIDI data stored in banks and patches.
It has the following features:
- Stored MIDI data accessed via cv and gate inputs.
- Banks will store up to 16 notes and rests. Each note can have an independent MIDI channel.
- Each bank can also store 1 program change message.
- 5 memory locations to store patches
- “Chord” mode outputs all notes in a bank simultaneously when triggered.
- “Seq” mode outputs each note in a bank consecutively upon receiving a gate s- ignal.
- “Poly Seq” mode runs all 5 banks in sequencer mode simultaneously.
- The length of each bank is independent, allowing for more complex sequences to be produced.
- Chords and sequences can be transposed via the MIDI input.
- Velocity of MIDI data is determined by the amplitude of the gate signal.
- MIDI input and output via 2.5mm stereo jack to 5 pin DIN cables. The same format adopted by iOS devices.
- Panel size 6HP
- Module depth 41mm
- Maximum current consumption 59mA on +12V "
Price: £139.99 + postage, included with each module are two 2.5mm stereo to 5 pin DIN MIDI cables.
A few demos highlight some of the functionality that Iungo provides:
Video 1: Iungo from Entrospec
" A short demo that highlights some of the functionality that Iungo provides. Integrating MIDI controlled instruments with modular synthesizers by allowing voltage control of MIDI data.
A little about the patches:
1 - CV and Gate inputs from Make Noise Rene
2 - Gate from Shuffling Clock Multiplier, voltage offset scrolls through the 5 sequences, then random CV input from noise/sample & hold through an offset generator.
3 - Gate from Shuffling Clock Multiplier "
Video 2: Entrospec Iungo and Hexinverter Midi2cv
" Iungo in polyphonic sequencer mode being used to sequence 3 vco's via a Hexinverter midi2cv.
The vco's are out of shot, the cv outputs of the midi2cv control the pitch of each vco, and the gates trigger envelopes, 2 from the Make Noise Maths and a third out of shot.
The envelopes and vco outputs are patched to 3 channels of a Make Noise QMMG.
Midi2cv is in Poly 4 mode, so each cv and gate pair is addressed with a different midi channel. Note sequences have been stored in the Iungo beforehand, and the parts are brought in by unmuting them in the mute menu.
Iungo is clocked from a 4ms SCM. The pulsewidth of the triggers are increased towards the end, increasing the width of the gates going to the envelopes."
