CV Keys


The Hungry Robot CV Keys itself makes no sound, but it is the perfect utility for incorporating 1V/OCT, chromatic semitones into a modular system when it is not convenient to use midi keyboards or a midi-to-CV interface. This small pushbutton keyboard has just enough functionality for most modular users and provides very accurate 1V/OCT tracking. The CV keys has a full octave keyboard as well as octave switch allowing you to jump between octaves on the fly. The Hold button latches the gate signal for handsfree use. It uses last note priority, has two unique gate modes, two buffered outputs, and a Transpose jack that let you patch in an external sequence and transpose it chromatically through the CV keys.



-OCTAVE: Cycles between 6 octaves


-HOLD: When LED is lit, Hold is on. When Hold Mode is on, the Gate and Retriggered Gate will latch so you don't have to hold down the key

-KEYS: 13 note, single octave keyboard. Last note priority



-TRANSPOSE: Patching in a control voltage (i.e. from a sequencer) allows you to transpose the sequence according to the notes you play

-GATE: Standard 5V gate outputted when a key is played or when Hold mode is active

-GATE (Retriggered): 5V gate that retriggers with every new note played. NOTE: To retrigger an ADSR, you must use a short release setting

-CV OUT: Two buffered 1V/OCT outputs to patch to your multiple VCOs
