Volta Voltage Control Instrument Plug-In
With MOTU Volta, any hardware device with a control voltage (CV) input can be placed under precise digital control from your favorite audio workstation software. This state-of-the-art virtual instrument plug-in lets you play and automate modulars, analog synths-even effects processors.
Imagine being able to play and automate your CV-equipped analog gear from Digital Performer, Logic Pro, or Live, with the same level of control, precision, and convenience as a virtual instrument.
Here are just a few examples of what you can do with MOTU Volta:
Perform MIDI sequencing with external modular synths with sample-accurate precision (if your host sequencer supports sample-accurate MIDI)
Automatically calibrate and tune oscillators with the click of a button
Use ramp automation in your host audio software to control filters, envelope generators, effects processors, and other voltage-controlled external gear
Apply LFOs, step sequencers, and pattern sequencers to CV inputs and tempo-sync them to your host software timeline
To use Volta, simply instantiate it as an instrument plug-in in your host software. You then trigger Volta with MIDI notes and a variety of other control sources, and Volta outputs corresponding control voltage (CV) signals to the audio outputs of a DC-coupled audio interface. The resulting CV signals are routed to the CV inputs of your external hardware. Audio output is routed back to Volta.
As you can see, the signal path for Volta plug-in is a simple loop: a control voltage signal goes out to the external hardware. Pitch information comes back in, through Volta, as a normal digital audio stream that feeds into your host audio software mixing environment. From there, you can mix, process, and master Volta's audio output just like any other virtual instrument.
MOTU Volta is easy to use but offers plenty of advanced programminStandard virtual instrument plug-in that turns an audio interface with DC-coupled outputs into a voltage control interface
Lets you control external modular synths or other CV-equipped gear from your computer
Works with Digital Performer, Logic Pro, Live, and other Audio Unit instrument hosts that support side-chain outputs
Works with any MOTU audio interface equipped with TRS outputs, including the 24io with 24 TRS outputs, expandable to 96
Familiar, easy-to-use instrument plug-in operation within your favorite host software
Provides 24 control outputs per plug-in instance, so you can use as many instances as needed
Converts MIDI track data to control voltages to play modulars, analog synthesizers, and other CV-equipped sound sources
Sample-accurate MIDI playback with supporting host software (such as DP)
Provides seven different control source types, including MIDI notes, MIDI controller data and audio track automation, plus tempo-synced sources such as LFOs, clock pulses, and trigger/pattern sequencers
Provides one-click pitch and octave calibration per oscillator using either Hz/V or V/oct tuning standards
View at a glance the total calibrated range for each oscillator/interface combination
Sync multiple drum machines, arpeggiators and other clock destinations with independent PPQ resolution for each device
