49 note keyboard controller transforming any modular synthesizer into a performance instrument. With its built in MIDI/CV converter, joystick and portamento, single and multiple triggering features to name a few is ideal for any keyboard-based modular system, whether vintage or new.
The keyboard features switchable glide with adjustable portamento time, a transpose switch (-1 / 0 / +1 octave) and two trigger modes: single trigger or multi-trigger.
The Demon outputs CV signals at five parallel buffered sockets, additionally there a number of trigger and gate outputs. Analogue Systems even thought abut Switched-Trigger so you can use the Demon with a Moog Modular!
Besides the analog signals the left hand side panel of the RS-330 Keyboard Controller there are outputs of the MIDI/CV converter: Velocity, Aftertouch, Modulation Wheel (controller 1), Expression (controller 11) and Effect 1 (controller 12).
CV input: the input signal (±5V) is scaled to 20% (±1V) and added to the keyboard, in different ways depending on the trigger mode. In single trigger mode it is added constantly, in multi trigger mode only when a key is depressed.
The CV is emitted via MIDI as a Pitch Bend information.
The RS-220 Joystick provides you with CVs for both the X and Y axis, at two sockets each. The joystick is sprung and goes back into the center when unused. This behavoiur can be deactivated by removing the springs.

Starting almost in parallel with Doepfer, Bob Williams established back in 1998 his own modular system with fine circuits reminiscent of the British tradition initiated with EMS in the 1970s. Despite offering initially a different power connector and panel width standard (which left a 1,5HP gap), all modules bearing the "N" on their names are adapted to work seamlessly with most eurorack cases. Still, it is worth checking the depth of your case.
