Can Hermod convert CV to MIDI in real time?

I’d like to play MIDI devices with my Pressure Points module. Can Hermod convert the CV/gate from Pressure Points to MIDI, so I can connect a MIDI device to Hermod’s MIDI out and play it on Pressure Points?

Thanks!

Yes, you can do this. Hermod has four CV/Gate “in” channels which can be routed to a track which then passes on the data via MIDI by inserting a “OUTPUT” effect.

Thank you very much! Just tried it, works like a charm.

“Effects” are not really “effects” in Hermod. Think about them as “functions”. Combining effects in Hermod allows you to build very complex and interesting functions that would otherwise require very expensive and large numbers of individual modules. Hermod is wonderful for producing “generative music” as pioneered by Brian Eno. Maybe I once do a video in this topic.

Would love to see that video! @AndreasSteiner

So if I’m understanding correctly, there is no way to port CV A, B, C, and D directly to MIDI CC without using half of the potential CV outputs to do so?

indeed, cv inputs need to be routed to a track… and then to an output fx.

you could raise a feature request for some kind of cv thru option (there is midi thru already) - squarp can tell you if this is feasible or not.

Another question – is it possible to convert CV clock in to MIDI clock out?

Hermod can be set to run on CV clock source. I would imagine when Hermod is running it will send Midi star/stop and tempo out of its Midi ports.
