Module A-190-3 is a Midi/USB-to-CV/Gate interface that allows the integration of the A-100 system into a USB or Midi environment. It has available 4 analog control voltage outputs (CV1...4) and one Gate output. A-190-3 is the modular version of Dark Link.
In/Outputs and controls:
As the A-190-3 user's manual is not yet ready the A-190-2 user's manual may be used temporarily: A190_2_man.pdf. The main difference between A-190-2 and A-190-3 is the additional USB interface of the A-190-3 and the type of LED display. The Midi control functions are the same for both modules (i.e. the function of note, program change and control change messages in learn mode). In the A-190-2 the LED shows the gate function (i.e. LED = on while gate = high / LED = off while gate = low). In the A-190-3 the LED is permanently on and turns off only for a short time when an incoming Midi message is recognized. It's the same type of display as used in the Dark Energy. Actually the A-190-3 is nothing but the modular version of the Dark Energy interface.
The function of the jumpers is described in this document: A190_3_Manual_p13.pdf
Attention: The module comes with installed bus jumpers for CV and Gate. One has to remove the jumpers if e.g. an A-164, A-190-1, A-190-2, A-185-1 or A-185-2 is already connected to the CV and/or gate lines of the same bus board! If the A-190-3 should be used as CV and gate source for the A-100 bus the CV and gate connections of other CV/gate sources to the A-100 bus have to be removed. Otherwise short circuits are made between the outputs of the CV or gate transmitters !
Note: The gate level of the A-190-3 can be changed from +5V to +12V. For this the jumper on JP10A (behind the CV Note socket, labelled "GATE 5V JP10A") has to be removed and installed to JP10B (behind the 16 pin bus connector, labelled "GATE 12V JP10B").
