I recently purchased a Teenage Engineering OP-12 drum machine to add to my Micro Synth set up.
The OP-12 is ‘soft-sync’ and requires a 5v pulse to step it.
I use a Korg SQ-1 to run the show, but I wondered if I could get a trigger pulse from the MicroSequencer.
I hooked up a 3.5mm mono jack to the ‘in’ side of a Proto module (center to tip, right to sleeve) where my volt meter showed something like a pulse.
The results were disappointing.
The OP-12 chugs along for about 3 beats then chokes before repeating the process.
I’d be grateful if anyone has any suggestions on how I might improve this situation as the SQ-1 seems so big and out of place in my system.
Oh, I have ordered the MIDI and CV modules, but here in the UK supplies are non existent.
