I don’t own an organelle. I’m very interested in owning one - but I’ve got a critical question. I apologize if this is already discussed somewhere. It seems like an obvious question - and yet for all my searching I can’t find a clear answer: Does the organelle’s “foot pedal” input take control voltage? And I suppose - as a shot-in-the-dark followup: Can the organelles audio input take sub-audio-rate/dc-offset control voltage signals?
I’ve read the manual - which has a “note” says this:
“If an expression pedal is connected, your patch should receive a continuous
range of values. In our experience, various expression pedal models and
settings tend to deliver different ranges of values. This can be addressed at
the patch level.”
…which I guess suggests that variable values can be received at the pedal input port. It’s pretty vague though. And throughout the documentation the input is referred to as the “foot pedal input”. Which seems like a weird way to refer to a multi-purpose CV-able input. Also - it is possible that an expression pedal could deliver a range of values not by modulating a voltage - but through providing resistance. So the ability to take an expression pedal does not necessarily mean CV will work. This makes me think maybe it doesn’t take CV? But it can take an expression pedal and deliver a fluidly variable value to patches? Most simple guitar pedals that take expression inputs can handle CV at those inputs (at euroracks +/- 10 volts, but usually at 0-3v or 0-5v). Does the organelle do this?
Secondly - as I mentioned above - I suppose it’s also possible that there is no filtering of DC offset coming in at the audio inputs - which would mean that one (or both) “audio” input channels could be used as CV inputs. The same applies to the outputs. Is DC offset filtered out of them? Can I generate - say - a sub-audio-rate LFO and send it out one of the organelles outputs?
Overall I’m a bit stunned this information isn’t more readily available - given the electronic music culture the organelle was born into is so infatuated with the modular paradigm - and given that the awesomely flexible/DIY nature of the organelle would pair so marvelously well with the ability to integrate it with other gear.
So what’s the story - am I missing something? I FEEL LIKE I’M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!
