[NAMM] MOTU Volta
Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU) has presented Volta, a virtual instrument designed to turn your audio interface into a voltage control interface.
According to MOTU, anything with a control voltage (CV) input can be automated from your DAW with Volta. This includes modulars, analog mono synths and even effects processors like the moogerfoogers.
Volta provides access to the automation system of your DAW through ramps. You can draw in a timeline based automation and use this high resolution data to control anything with a CV input. You can also route any MIDI controller to control voltages. Volta provides audio-rate rendered software LFOs, step and trigger sequencers.
Each instance of volta supports up to 24 slots of outputs, and you can have as many instances of Volta as your hardware allows. For example, a MOTU PCI-424 system with four 24io interfaces provides 96 channels of output.
You can also use Volta to send note information. MIDI information goes in, and control voltages go out. All control signals are running at audio rate, and MIDI note playback is pre-buffered. This provides is designed to sample accurate timing of your external hardware.
Thanks to CreateDigitalMusic for some of this reporting.
