Off thetop of my head, I would think that would not work. While theoretically youcould record gates and CVs as digital signals, all of the audio circuitry,filters, etc. in a standard CD player are bound to screw up the output.


I wouldthink you would need to come up with some variation of FSK(frequency-shift-keying) and an outboard conditioning circuit to make this workproperly.


I could bewrong.

Subject: [motm] interestingsequencer idea..?




glad toback online again (slight computer glitch...)

i hadan interesting idea, and would like to pitch it out to the list before i decideit was a crap idea after all, anyway the basis of it is: could you record gate& cv data onto a CD and then use any CD player with a small inlineinterface as a sequencer..?

with myapallingly optimistic knowledge the following parameters need to be addressed:

gate onleft hand channel

cv onright

precisionattenuator needed for recording (a 0.1% resistor..?)

aprecision amplifier to reinstate the original voltage levels (now this is thedifficult bit)

sequencingwould probably best be edited in some computer package then burnt direct to cd


so -any comments other than "don't be so stupid"..?
