Songsmith ConVertor+ works from a monophonic analog audio input 09/07/18
Sonicsmith has posted this video introduction to the ConVertor+ Audio Controlled Synthesizer, a new version of the ConVertor synth with several improvements.
A spokesperson told us, "The ConVertor+ has the cutting edge technology to control analog synths with your own instrument. Its internal sound engine is completely analog and it works on a standard 9V power. it can “learn” the frequency of a monophonic analog audio input while playing analog synth waves and CV outputs of pitch, ENV, gate and trigger CV outputs. Unlike other analog VCO’s, the ACO never looses tune, has 8 octaves range of detection and has 5-12 micro-seconds reaction time."

Extracts gate, pitch, envelope and trigger CV signals from a single audio input
Plays internal analog synth with both square and sawtooth waves along with the input
Input auto-adjusting filter can work in 2 pole (faster) or 4 pole (tighter)
Powerful Input preamp with clean 40dB range
Envelope follower with continuous control from positive to reverse shape
Side chain minijack input can feed the second ENV follower for alternative ENV path
2 thru jacks duplicate the main input and side-chain input for unlimited daisy chaining
9V battery operation or standard 9V pedal supply
Dual level meters for main input and side chain input
Input auto-filter is assignable to the output where it’s audible
