Minibrute to Minimoog Model D question
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:34:08 pm »
Ok let me start by saying I'm a musician & not a technician so my below question might be a real simple one  ???

I have hooked my minibrute up with a midi cable so the arpeggiator fires in time with my track & I have then hooked it up to my Minimoog using the gate out to the s-trig input & the pitch out to oscillator input & it is sending pitch signal which is way cool  8) however none of the other sliders on the minibrute seem to affect the minmoog so the filters, amp, mix etc.... Can these be used to send signal to the minimoog? Do I need to split the signal from either the pitch out or the gate out to the filter input on the minimoog?

Any help greatly appreciated

Oh yes & also the pitch appears to be an octave or so higher on the moog, which is odd????

The Minibrute only sends gate and CV pitch controls via the cv jacks.  The MIDI output contains note, mod wheel and velocity information. If you have a MIDI to CV converter you may be able to use velocity and/or modwheel to control the Minimoog more via CV.

Ah ha, thank you for that. I've seen a couple of videos of it firing analogue synths however the moog one is pitch & gate only & the other one is not a moog so I guess its just a dream. One of the reasons I got the Minibrute is I believed it was a Midi to CV converter however as mentioned previously I like making music & all the tech stuff is a bit over my head  :-[

Here are the videos:

Hi the MiniBrute is not a Surface controller, therefore none of the potentiometer controls can be sent out. The Pitch output only sends keyboard CVs and Arpeggiator CVs, the GATE out sends GATE signal. There you need to convert the GATE signal to be able to use it as expected with a MiniMoog D. That is you need a cable that converts V-Trig to S-Trig (the CINCH plug contains a transistor , a diode and a resistor) otherwise the MiniMoog will tend to be triggered out of tempo.
