Turn your audio interface into a voltage control interface with the MOTU Volta. This virtual instrument plug-in has features such as: MIDI sequencing with external modular synths, one-click oscillator tuning and calibration, ramp automation with host software, and the ability to apply LFOs, step sequencers and pattern sequencers to CV inputs.
