CV Tools is now available in Ableton Live 10 Suite
CV Tools enables you to communicate from your Live DAW by using modulate CV. The signal is sent from Ableton and CV Tools to your modular setup. To send the CV you can use Expert Sleepers ES-8 which offers an audio interface directly in Live or a compatible dc-coupled audio interface. Use Live as the tempo leader or set it to follow your modular system clock. The Pack also lets you experiment with modular-style beat and polyrhythm generation even if you don’t own any CV-based gear.
With CV Tools musicians can interface their modular or other CV-based gear and Ableton Live 10 using a compatible dc-coupled audio interface.
For those who don’t own modular equipment, the Rotating Rhythm Generator and CV Utility devices also work with MIDI, adding modular-style workflow inside Live or to hardware setups.
