I think John was looking for something more like a module you put the
initial cv into and then plug it into your VCO's if you want octave control
as an option. Sort of like a lag processor I guess. As a guy looking for
mean lead solo's, I have to side with John looking for more options for our
modulars instead of limiting them. IMHO I think this would be a useful
addition to the joystick module if it ever takes shape. This module or
option would be incredibly useful for me onstage instead of trying to change
the ocatve pitch manually in front of the crowd. My controller for now is
only an SH-101 so my key range is very limited. Thanks for listening to MHO!
