Roland MPU-101 Vintage MIDI to CV/Gate Converter • Like NEW • Manual

Unit comes from a songwriter's private home studio.  It was in his closet for years, and looks like NEW (unused).   It will come with the original owner's manual - which is still in the plastic.  It too, looks untouched.

Unit can be picked up in North Hollywood, CA.


The MPU-101 is unique in that it converts MIDI data into control voltages and analog gates. When the MPU-101 is connected to a MIDI sending unit, a conventional 1 -volt/octave Cv/gate synthesizer such as the SH-101, SH-2, SH-5, SH-07, System-100M etc... can be controlled by MIDI data.
Other voltage-controlled devices can also be controlled. For example, you can automatically synchronize lighting equipment with your performance.
The gate signals can also be used as trigger signals to control a percussion sound source like the Boss PC-2 or HC-2, a sampling unit such as the Boss DSD-2, or a digital delay, for example the Boss DE-200.

The MPU-101 can expand your MIDI system's potential just as much as your imagination allows.
The MPU-101 has four output channels, each with pitch control voltage, gate signal, and dynamics control signal outputs. Up to four CV synthesizers can be controlled by MIDI data.
ln addition to the key information, other MIDI data including velocity. bender modulation, after touch, and volume information is converted into analog signals.
