Looking for cheap USB/MIDI to CV interface with Ableton

Hey guys,

I have two semimodular synths (Model D + Neutron) and I would like to automate a few things within ableton and I will need a CV interface to control for example the filter of the Model D.

There are really expensive interfaces, but there are cheaper solutions too.

Currently I'm looking forward to a Mutable Instruments CVPal. However it does not have my whole voltage-range I might consider (max. 4V, Model D accepts up to 5V, but that would be still fine! I tested the filter with 4V and that range is ok for me). Price is like 30-40€ here in Germany. It seems to be not that fast with windows...

Can you suggest any interfaces? Using Ableton with Windows 10. My interface has MIDI out and is not capable of CV.

Thanks

If you haven't jumped into the Eurorack format, maybe consider a stand-alone box like a Kenton?

Or that Akai controller has CV outs that can be reassigned.

The neutron has an assignable cv output and midi in: you can set the assignable output to modwheel, and use that to control whatever you want

Didn't think of that! I might consider to automate more than one parameter though. However I used this right away and it's so simple yet effective. Thanks a lot.

Also, outside of eurorack there is the cv ocd. Arturia keystep can also be used in this way I think (not sure). In eurorack the 2hp midi is a relatively cheap solution. All similar prices, no personal experience with any of them btw.

I used to have a (second hand) Mutable Yarns, which is great but a lot more expensive.
