I have the Kenton Pro Solo and it never disappoints me. I use it to control my ARP Odyssey. I also have a Doepfer MCV4, but I couldn't stand the stepped voltage changes with the pitch bend, so I upgraded. The Kenton is so much better. I bought a Juno-60 recently and now I have to decide whether to g...

That article claims, "his favorite piece of studio gear is by far the Roland [Alpha] Juno-2, which provides Gonzalez with the "John Carpenter" sounds he's looking for." I suspect they meant to say "John Hughes...

Bought a modded TR-606 from Stalfosia. He was a pleasure to interact with, and the item shipped right after I sent payment and arrived very well packaged. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Pitch bend resolution on Doepfer MCV4

I'm using a Doepfer MCV4 to control my ARP Odyssey with MIDI. It works beautifully. However, the 1/4-semitone stepped resolution of the pitch bend is a real buzz-kill. It's nowhere close to a smooth-sounding pitch-bend. Has anyone had any luck getting a smoother pitch-bend CV using a different devic...
