Using Ableton Live to Send CV Signals

April 22, 2009
using ableton live and a handful of LFO type wav files to modulate external analog gear. fun stuff.
(if you’re not interested in the “how” and just want to see the frostwave spaz out, jump to 3:30 or so.) this stuff *only* works with MOTU audio interfaces (see: volta). this is an easy and free way to send beat-synced LFOs to your outboard modular gear; moogerfoogers, sherman filterbank, little phatty… anything with a CV input.

the LFO wav files used in the vid can be downloaded here: mediafire.com/download.php

i recommend setting the warp method to “Re-Pitch” to keep LFOs smooth at extreme BPMs. or don’t… and get cool glitches.
