Using A Modular Synth To Control Ableton Live
Routing audio from a hardware synth into Ableton is cool, but using the synth itself to control the DAW? This application, CV4LIVE, does exactly this, enabling a modular synth to send control voltages and trigger signals into Ableton Live.
As demonstrated in the video, this utility provides a sea of possibilities. With the amount of internal processes that take place in a modular synth, such as its sequencer and modulation envelopes, this application allows these functions to be used in an entirely new way.
If you’re interested, this video demonstrates the reverse of this…controlling a modular synth with Ableton.
