Control Voltage anyone ? The CVolt is a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) that allows you to interface with analog synths. Use gestures to wave at your rack of analog gear. A digital I2C actuator, that outputs high resolution 12-bit voltages.
- Control an analog synth's VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) with the CVolt via 0-5V. Setup a ReachCloseD, map it to a CVolt and sweep that VCO with your hand motions.

- Our EditorX software allows you to configure the digitizer to control multiple actuators simultaneously.
- Make sure the actuator is plugged into the digitizer with the red wire connected to power. Reversing the plug or applying power with reverse polarity may cause damage to the actuator.
- Requires a digitizer with digital (I2C) ports, eg. the WiDig or USB-microDig.
- See pict below for instructions how to connect. The yellow wire carries the output voltage, whereas the black wire is connected to ground. 5V is available from the receptacle next to the yellow wire.
- The default I2C address is 98 (0x62). Both I2C lines have 4.7 kOhm pull-up resistors.
- Our software enables you to use most features. For more technical specs, and to find out how to control the actuator in detail, please consult this datasheet.
