Volta - Voltage Control Instrument Plug-in

Signal path

To use Volta, simply instantiate it as an instrument plug-in in your host software.

You then trigger volta with MIDI notes and a variety of other control sources, and Volta outputs corresponding control voltage (CV) signals to the audio outputs of a DC-coupled audio interface. The resulting CV signals are routed to the CV inputs of your external hardware. Audio output is routed back to Volta.

Volta signal path

As you can see, the signal path for Volta is a simple loop: a control voltage signal goes out to the external hardware. Pitch information comes back in, through Volta, as a normal digital audio stream that feeds into your host audio software mixing environment.

From there, you can mix, process and master Volta's audio output just like any other virtual instrument.
