A Bundle of an Expert Sleepers Module and a MIDI expansion module with switchable TRS Midi
The General CV is a combination of a powerful General MIDI synthesizer, a multi-channel CV-to-MIDI converter, and a host processor capable of generating huge amounts of MIDI data, either in response to control voltages (CVs) or entirely algorithmically.
The module's software provides a layer of control over the synthesizer allowing you to create sounds far beyond the familiar (cheesy, even) sounds of General MIDI with which you might be familiar. From making the synth behave like a VCO, to creating complex chords and textures, and even to abusing drum sounds into pitched audio sources, the General CV will add a rich selection of fresh sounds to your modular synth.
(Though it will also play any MIDI files of 80's pop tunes that you might happen to download from the web.)
The General CV is a 12HP Eurorack module.
MIDIXO is a TRS MIDI Swiss Army Knife for your Eurorack synth. It's a simple, functional utility module that can help you use MIDI over 3.5mm stereo cables. It has one input and one output, both of which can be switch from "Type A" to "Type B" so they can be use with almost every product which uses TRS MIDI. This includes products from Arturia, Make Noise, Korg, Akai, Malekko, Novation, 1010 Music, ALM Busy Circuits, Pittsburg and more.
This allows you to skip the MIDI 5-pin DIN cables and MIDI dongles that manufacturers include, and just use standard 3.5mm stereo cables everywhere.
MIDIXO is friends with some excellent Expert Sleepers modules. Its simply connected to the expansion header using the included 4-pin ribbon cable. You can also pair the MIDIXO with the Expert Sleepers MIDI breakout – again using the included 4 pin ribbon cable and have two independent TRS MIDI / MIDI 5-pin DIN converters!
MIDIXO is only 2hp wide and doesn't require any power or connections on your busboard. It's a perfect utility for Expert Sleepers fans and for anyone using MIDI gear that has 3.5mm TRS jacks.
