The CAT does use standard CV/GATE. Moog synths use CV/S-TRIG. S-TRIG is NOT
the same as GATE. I assume the AX-60 you are referring to a trigger (not a
gate) input for the arpegiator? I have seen some gate devices trigger
momentarily from a s-trig signal but they're not necessarily designed to do
that. It is possible to make convertors for gate to s-trig and from s-trig
to gate (I think gate to s-trig is the easier of the two).

Mike.
