Euro modular CV into modded Sidekick???
  • Hi all, I'm having a Sidekick modded professionally, with both CV and trigger input being added, and was wondering if my Euro modular would be fine to use with the CV/triggers (voltage wise)? I just don't want to mess anything up on either systems...Thanks for any input, since I'm a novice with this type of thing. Thanks again! J.
  • If its done “professionally” there should be some kind of additional CV conversion circuit – as far as my rather limited knowledge goes Shruthis uses 0…5V as CV whereas EuroModular Systems use 0…10V. Didnt your Modding Guy give you advice?

  • Well, I probably didn't explain in detail what type of modular I was working with...but my mod guy did tell me (today) that I could use an attenuator to scale down the voltage...and I have several of those in my Euro racks, so it sounds like I should be ok...

    Thanks for your help. J.
  • so how will you know when your tweaking that your at 4.95 volts and then one a downbeat you go 7v and fry it? I’d want a safety built in for 5V.

  • At least you’d try a simple Voltage Divider:

    EuroCV- and Shruthi CV-
    R 10k
    Shruthi CV+
    R 10k
    EuroCV +


    Also please note that the Shruthi does not work with 1V/Oct….

  • a passive attenuator is simply a voltage divider, he already has one. You’re all describing the same thing. Deopfer A183 . Feed it the max CV, adjust the pot till the output is 5V and thats it..

Howdy, Stranger!
