Module a-190 is a midi-cv/sync interface, with which you can control any a-100 module which has cv and gate/trigger input sockets by midi. ¬†The a-190 has two digital-to-analogue converters (dac for short), which put out control voltages from 0 v to +5 v, so that you can control not just the pitch, but also another voltage-controllable parameter on the a-100. ¬†Dac 1 is 'hard-wired' to receive midi note messages and convert them into control voltages available at cv output socket cv 1. ¬†The dac has 12-bit resolution, which gives excellent tuning resolution (in steps of 1/4096th). ¬†As a rule, dac 1 will be used to control vco pitch. dac 2 can be assigned to your choice of midi controller. ¬†This dac has 7-bit resolution (1/128th steps). ¬†Its output is available at cv 2, and can be used for voltage control of any suitable module (eg vcf, vca, etc.).
The a-190 also has a clock output, controlled by midi clock. ¬†This can be divided down to provide a variety of clock outputs, and enable older sequencers or drum machines to be synced to midi. ¬†Reset output provides control of the¬†¬†/¬†¬†clock divider / sequencer or can produce midi-synchronised gates (for instance on an adsr). ¬†Midi start or continue messages make the voltage at the reset output go low, and midi stop messages make it go high.
In addition, the a-190 allows for portamento (glide) and pitch-bend, and provides a software lfo. ¬†These functions can all be switched on and off or altered by midi controllers. ¬†All control parameters can be saved in non-volatile memory.
