Expert Sleepers has announced their latest Eurorack module, the FH-1 'faderHost' USB MIDI Host, a USB MIDI Host in an 8HP Eurorack module, allowing you to directly connect a USB MIDI controller to your modular synthesizer. Using a suitable connector box, that USB MIDI controller can be an iPad or plain old computer.
As well as simple direct control of the output CVs from MIDI CCs, the FH-1 also offers:
LFOs on each output
Polyphonic MIDI/CV conversion
Preliminary Specifications (subject to change):
Panel width: 8HP
Module depth: 43mm
Current draw: 70mA on the +12V rail, 30mA on the -12V rail (100mA total)
plus the power requirement of the attached USB device.
Digital-to-analogue conversion: 14 bit
Voltage range: jumper selectable between ±5V, 0-10V, 0-5V
Inputs: 2 digital inputs for clocks etc.
USB socket: Type A
The front panel is drilled for both Doepfer and Analogue Systems mounting holes (using a 'slot' rather than a single round hole). The power connector is a Doepfer standard 10 way IDC, with -12V furthest from the top of the board.
Pricing and Availability: The FH-1 will be unveiled at the NAMM show, January 2015, and is expected to be available around April 2015.
