I'm very new to this, so apologies if this is a question with an obvious answer.
Am I correct in thinking that if I wanted an external sequencer to be able to control multiple types of sounds over different midi channels, that I'd need multiple MASTER modules?
That is a fair question and unfortunately at the moment having more than one MIDI channel is not possible. Even adding another MASTER module is not the solution as the MIDI signals are transported together with power via the bus cable and there can only be one MASTER module per rack. An independent MIDI module, that just has Pitch and Gate outputs on the front, is somewhere buried deep in the wish list of future modules, but at the moment it doesn't exist.
I'm planning to allow more MIDI voices by splitting my big single rack into multiple racks, but that of course introduces space issues on my small desk.
Unfortunately, so far, if you want multiple voices controlled via midi you need multiple boxes/system with its own master module. Since you could switch to 4 channels on the master it would be easy to have 4 voices/boxes without one controller. For more a simple midi filter could help but I guest 16 voices with 16 boxes would be a bit space angry even with the smallest 12x1
I kind of have been thinking also of doing a second boxes as well. I just ordered too much modules comparing to the unit left on my box (which was none ). So now, while waiting for them to arrive, I've to decide if I'll be selling the extra modules or create a second box (in that case would need master, utilities on so on...).
look nice but out of stock everywhere . Depending on which sequencer you have, many already have cv out. So could have one with midi and other with cvs out without the need of a converter. Like keystep pro or beatstep pro with midi and 2 x 4 I/O you get 3 voices right away without needs of converter...
this thread got me thinking about the CV.OCD myself actually - i picked up a Monome Norns earlier in the year and there are plenty of interesting sequencing things doable with it, sending MIDI from that into multiple voices on AE might well be very interesting indeed. Hmm!

Yeah, for me the CV.OCD is a no brainer. So powerful, yet very affordable and it doesn’t take much space. No matter what you do, if you have CV and MIDI in your music setup, this thing will most probably be very useful. It even runs on 9V, although with a center negative plug.
