As it both connects and is powered directly from USB, the USB Solo is all you need to control an analog synthesizer from a computer. With no MIDI interface necessary, and no external power supply, cabling clutter is kept to a minimum. The USB Solo still maintains the famous Kenton tuning stability though, as well as a full-scale range on the CV and auxiliary outputs thanks to its internal power circuitry.
The CV output can operate at 1V/Oct, Hz/Volt or 1.2V/Oct. The scaling and tuning are adjustable, to accommodate any unruly synths. The Gate output can work at several different voltage levels, and can also be set to work a S-trig instead. In addition to this, the USB Solo also features a Sync24 output, so your vintage Roland equipment can join in as well. The USB Solo is a class-compliant USB MIDI device, and doesn’t require installing any drivers, just plug and play.
