MOTU Volta

MOTU has revealed some more information on Volta, a virtual instrument plug-in that turns your audio interface into a voltage control interface.

Any hardware device with a control voltage (CV) input can be placed under precise digital control from your favorite audio workstation software. You can play and automate modulars, analog synths – even effects processors.

Imagine being able to play and automate your CV-equipped analog gear from Digital Performer, Logic Pro, or Live with the same level of control, precision and convenience as a virtual instrument.

Volta features

  • Standard virtual instrument plug-in that turns an audio interface with DC-coupled outputs into a voltage control interface.
  • Lets you control external modular synths or other CV-equipped gear from your computer.
  • Works with Digital Performer, Logic Pro, Live and other Audio Unit instrument hosts that support side chain outputs.
  • Works with any MOTU audio interface equipped with TRS outputs, including the 24io with 24 TRS outputs, expandable to 96.
  • Familiar, easy-to-use instrument plug-in operation within your favorite host software.
  • Provides 24 control outputs per plug-in instance. Use as many instances as needed.
  • Converts MIDI track data to control voltages to play modulars, analog synthesizers and other CV-equipped sound sources.
  • Sample-accurate MIDI playback with supporting host software (such as DP).
  • Provides seven different control source types, including MIDI notes, MIDI controller data and audio track automation, plus tempo-synced sources such as LFOs, clock pulses and trigger/pattern sequencers.
  • Provides one-click pitch and octave calibration per oscillator using either Hz/V or V/oct tuning standards.
  • View at a glance the total calibrated range for each oscillator/interface combination.
  • Sync multiple drum machines, arpeggiators and other clock destinations with independent PPQ resolution for each device.

Availabilty and pricing are TBA.
