PLEASE NOTE: Fitting a socket upgrade kit is a skilled job which should be undertaken only by a competent synth service engineer or fitted by us at our premises in Epsom, just outside London.
This is the Socket Kit for the miniKORG 700/700S. If you wanted the MIDI Retrofit Kit, see the miniKORG 700 MIDI Retrofit Kit page or the miniKORG 700S Retrofit Kit page.
Kit to add CV / Gate / Filter sockets to the Korg 700 or Korg 700s
When used in conjunction with one of our MIDI to CV converters, such as the Pro-Solo mkII, USB-Pro or Pro-2000 mkII, these three additional sockets will enable the synth to be played from a MIDI keyboard or MIDI sequencer.
The inputs are on 3.5mm mono jack sockets which provide the following control:
CV – provides Hz/V control over the oscillator frequency
Gate – controls when notes play (0 volts = note off / >3 volts = note on)
Filter – controls the cutoff frequency of the low pass filter (from aux out of converter)
The kit contains a circuit board and all necessary components and diagrams for connecting the wires / components, and mounting the three 3.5mm mono jack sockets and switch.
Used with a Pro-Solo mkII or Pro-2000 mkII this kit will give you the following control over the synth from a suitable MIDI keyboard or sequencer:
Notes – at least 5 octaves range – (this is not limited by the kit or converter, but by the synth itself)
Pitchbend – range can be set in the converter
Modulation – from converter’s inbuilt LFO. Speed and waveshape can be changed in real time.
Portamento (slide) – rate can be changed in real time.
Filter cutoff frequency – can be controlled using any continuous MIDI controller (cc) or other MIDI message such as Aftertouch or Velocity
Low / High / Recent note priority – can be set in the converter
Single / Multiple note trigger modes – can be set in the converter
See the specifications of the Pro-Solo mkII, USB-Solo or Pro-2000 mkII for further features.
