[µTune] with GrandMother?

Post by Orientalstarij » Thu Jan 14, 2021 7:42 am

Hello I bought a eurorack case and this module so I can play microtonal (oriental) music with my Moog Grandmother semi modular
I thought I can connect them together without needing other modules but I can't figure it out.

Can someone tell explain me how to connect my moog grandmother or other semi modular synth to this module to transform the signal to microtonal?


Sorry if my question is stupid haha

Did you try connecting channel 1 and channel 2 outs to the Pitch inputs of each oscillator?

I looked at the grandmother and I believe the connection would be as follows

KB OUT to uTune CV-in

uTune CV-out to PITCH IN

There are a lot more possibilities of course but this would be a basic patch to use the grandmother keyboard as a cv/gate source and control the grandmother synth.

Yes that sounds like a very efficient way to do it, are you having success loading the scales?

No it never worked and i ended up selling my GM out of frustration. I was Always getting completely out of tune stuff all the with every connection you could try.
Thought i'm dumb but nah this thing didn't do the job

Kinda sad since it's basically the only module with the promise of a great microtonal possibility but if you search on Google there are littéraly no real exemples of this thing really working with a keyboard analogue synth, it drove me crazy since i had so many dreams about creating my very own oriental space analog stuff that nobody ever did before lmao.

Ended up using VSTs that work like a charm but my heart is broken

This module is litteraly the biggest frustration of my musical life. Support never answered properly to my questions and like i said you cant even find any real exemples of this thing working with analo keyboard, Such a shame.

Kept the module for future tries but i swear i'm going to sue y'all if it don't work (jk jk)

Yes, the module is quite complicated, especially when some functions doesnt work, but in general it can be pretty difficult to set up.
It could really benefit from a good sunshine jones manual
