Hi all,

Has anyone used a microcontroller to send a clock signal to the FV-1? Is this doable with something like an ATMega328?

Thanks,

Sean Costello

As long as the clock signal is 0 to 3.3V it should work fine. Run it into the X1 pin to clock the FV-1. If it will be a variable clock make sure that any change in frequency is smooth and not abrupt.

A collaborator and I have been exploring this for using the FV-1 as an oscillator / physical model. It appears to work quite well.

Also, big fan ;D your Z-DSP card is my #1 favorite in terms of quality. If you feel like checking it out I have a ZDSP card (or several) in progress.

also assumably have a Z-DSP, you can run an arduino with the tone function or some form of interrupt and wire a jack up to use as the clock input to the ZDSP

Not sure why it took me 6 months to see this, but it sounds INCREDIBLE! That is some amazing time stretching/scrubbing going on there. Very Gantz Graf.

I have 2 Z-DSPs, but no Arduino. I need to pick one up and try this out.
