Ableton CV tools AC and DC coupled question
Hi there!

I just tried the Ableton CV tools with RME UCX soundcard which have DC coupled headphone output,and I use it for the pitch and gate output and it goes to the Slim Phatty,and it works great.I am new in this control voltage topic,I tried for a short time the other output of my RME UCX output for controlling the filter input of the Moog,and it seems to work fine,but I'm affraid of damage th synth,becouse as I best I know the other outputs of the RME are AC coupled.Can I damage the Slim Phatty with using AC and DC control voltage at the same time?

Thank You for Your answer!

Best wishes!

You need special cables or you can damage your audio interface.
