I didn't understand that puthbutton idea, but as this thread as already
been around I stressed the NEED of several cv,cv,gate triples for
several Midi channels to Vance.
I have two Doepfer boxes here, each supplying my with one pair of CV/gate.
I would keep them, expecially as they also do the Korg MS20 scale.

But one Box (19" dream!) for a whole bunch of old loveys would be cOOl !

That's not too important to me. Who doesn't have several TR's beside
the Triggerable monos ?
