How does the µScale works?

Hi,
I saw videos about the µScale, and it looks like a cool module, pretty melodies coming out and everything, but I just can’t understand how it basically works.
I would like to build a Max/PD version of it, so if someone can explain the basic principles of it, that would be great.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Basically, what it does is take any incoming voltage and round it to the closest voltage in a 1-volt-per-octave scale equal to the selected notes.

For a version of this in Max that rounds numbers to MIDI notes in a scale check the “Scaler” patch in the examples. Or check the BEAP Quantizer module if you want to stay within 1v/o.

Okay, so I guess all the knobs are “tuning” the output that’s it ?

There is no knobs.
Only buttons, displaying a keyboard and setting which notes can be outputted.
