The MS-812 is an embedded computer board with integral 32-bits processing paths, using Ethernet network to Convert MIDI or CopperLan messages to CV and digital control voltages as used in modular and analog synthesizers. It offers 8 high-resolution CV outputs (octal 16-bits converter) and 12 digital outputs.
A dual SYNC24 interface is included as an alternative function on digital output jacks.
MS-812 are supplied ready to use, the actual linking is managed via the CopperLan Manager software (MAC OS, iOS & WIN 32/64). This freeware tool is also used to monitor the status of all CopperLan computers and equipment. The module can be controlled from any computer anywhere in the network.
A blue LED flashes with incoming notes and two red LEDs do the same for clock flows 1 and 2. This will help the user by giving a visual cue of the activity on these connections.
