I have a question - do you use external kayboard for your AE Modular?
If so, what's your favourite? Or maybe using modular keyboard/touch surface/etc.? Any suggestions?
I was thinking to buy maybe Arturia Keystep with CV and Gate out, but meanwhile decided to make a small super simple version to fit directly into modular rack. Either these small switches or something else doesn't seem to respond correctly, so Gate function isn't working or makes some glitches. But found a way around by feeding CV OUT to ENV and then to VCA and everything seems to work properly.
It depends on the personal taste; the Arturia Keysteps are fine, they offer CV/gate and MIDI. But my personal taste goes towards an integrated keyboard; my plan is to make it with sensor keys, two rows with 8 keys each and a scale selection, plus octave switches. Up to now I use mostly the Novation Circuit as MIDI controller for AE and I like the concept of the keyboard there, so I will adapt it quite similar.
BTW: Great to see all your DIY modules! This is exactly how AE is meant!
I use the Beatstep Pro as a keyboard for the AE modular, and obviously sequence with it too. I use the midi out, and one day will use the other sequence via CV/Gate but that's triggering my MS20 presently. The BSP is great as a quick trigger out/sketch pad etc. and can do so much more but I have to say I haven't delved really deep into it yet...
