The CVC has been designed to allow analog synthesizer users to concentrate on their continuum playing technique and sound patches - and not spend so much time and effort handling midi to CV conversion.
With the CVC, the polyphonic X, Y, and Z outputs of the various Haken Audio instruments can be converted into a total of sixteen continuous control voltages and gates. This is done by connecting the Continuum's data output directly to the CVC's data input, thus avoiding midi altogether. The CVC is specifically designed for the Continuum, ContinuuMini, EaganMatrix modules and Osmose and will not work with other devices.
- Built around i2c chips which communicate directly with the Continuum, ContinuuMini, or Osmose at 400kHz data rate
- DIN5 and 3.5mm i2c connection options, allowing direct connection to all generations of Continuums, ContinuuMini, EaganMatrix Module, and Osmose
- Unprecedented pitch bend support of 8 octaves (96 half steps pitch) at full Continuum output resolution (1 cent)
- 16-bit Digital-to-Analog converters on all individual control voltage outputs
- Much higher update rates than a standard keyboard: Finger pressure update rate is so fast that the updates can make an audible pitch on a standard Midi-CV, requiring external filtering. The CVC has been designed with this in mind, and as such requires no external filters for noise suppression.
- CVC’s Base Voice feature allows you to enable subsets of CVC outputs. For example, you can patch four different monophonic patches, and switch between them during a performance.
- The CVC can output control signals originating from data fed to the Continuum’s Midi input. This allows a Continuum performance to be captured and played back from a Midi sequencer into the CVC.
- Depending on your analog synthesizer, you will have particular preferences for voltage ranges of each output on your CVC. The CVC can switch between different voltage set ups at any time through special interaction with the Continuum playing surface or the Continuum Editor.
- EaganMatrix can be programmed to create entirely custom control voltages; up to 8 control voltages can be defined for a voice, integrating formula math, shape generators, delays, and other EaganMatrix functionality into your analog performance

Munich-born Lippold Haken started working on the Continuum Fingerboard in the early 1980s as he obtained his Ph.D. in Electric Engineering at University of Illinois. A decade later he teamed up with Edmund Eagan to develop built-in sounds that are specifically designed for the Continuum’s three-dimensional playing surface.
