Update - CV Monitor Tool

A quick update to the CV Monitor Tool.

presiato posted an improvement that allows the four Rotary inputs to be used for bipolar CV signals, rather than the unpleasant truncation that occurred in version 0.0.3.

His original post is here (if you have access to the forum). Many thanks for the improvement!

I have posted the improved CV Monitor Combi patch here:

CV Monitor Tool 0.0.4

Note that the display range is set from 1 to 2000 - this is because a direct mapping between a bipolar CV value and the DDL numeric display does not seem possible. You can get pretty close, but it's often out by 1 or 2. To ensure that this inaccuracy does not confuse anyone, I deliberately extended the range to approximately 1000 in either direction. Feel free to consider this +/- 100.0% if you like. Note that the mid-point is now 992 (for a CV value of zero). I realise this isn't ideal, but it's due to inaccuracies generated by rounding within Reason.

If you can improve it, please let me know!

  1. I think it is a great tool to use to see 'visually' what is happening in the rack. So far I can't come up with any idea for improvements though. But... when something pops-up, i will let you know ;)
