Realistic MG-1 rear jacks?

Post by Noise Machine » Sun Aug 09, 2009 3:47 pm

Hey there,

I have a Realistic MG-1, and I've played it for about 4 years. I see on the back there are 2 jacks labeled "Pitch" and "Trigger". What do these do when something is plugged into them? Could I plug other instruments in and "treat" them with the synth's filter section?

Unfortunately, no. Having been marketed as a consumer level rather than professional level instrument, the usual synth terminology was translated to layman's terms. Pitch and Trigger simply refer to CV and Gate respectively.

CV/gate is just a pre-MIDI method of basic communication between synths and/or sequencers. So theoretically you could sequence the MG-1 from a CV/gate equipped sequencer, or from your computer if you also invested in a MIDI to CV converter.

You can't use these inputs to process external sounds in any way.
