Hermod + Shifty

Anyone have this pair and managing to get them to work together? When I feed an arp CV from Hermod into Shifty it doesn’t seem to do anything - it just stays on the same note. I’ve tried the different delay compensation settings on Shifty, but the result is the same. I’ve used other sequencers / cv sources into Shifty and they all work as expected. Just not Hermod.

Edit: with a bit more testing, it seems to be because note CV from Hermod is bipolar - and Shifty is unipolar. Solves here would be to offset the notes going out by setting artificially higher notes (C5 and above) or adjusting the 1st Midi Effect.

And then tuning your oscillator down.
