Your connections are wrong here. You have to set up one of the a4 cv’s (e.g. CvA) to volt per octave and patch that cable to the 1V/Oct input on the 0 coast on the bottom of the oscillator section.
Then you choose Gate for e.g. CvB on the A4 and patch that cable into the gate input of the 0 coast on the contour section.
Judging on your picture, I recommend reading the 0coast manual thoroughly.
Btw. You can play the 0 coast via the A4 keyboard, but you can’t sequence it via midi from the a4
First, you can’t sample any gear with the A4, that can only be done with the OT.
The most straight forward way to sequence your 0-coast is via midi from the OT.
Simply connect midi, choose a channel on the OT midi track (the 0-coast listens to all channels by default) and you’re good to go. Simple as that.
If you want to use the A4, then use the search function on this forum. There are countless threads about setting up the A4 for cv sequencing. On the 0-coast, you have to patch it like I described above
Yes, Elektron CV split cable is good for sending CV and Gate signals to modular synths. As @Unifono was saying, you have your connections wrong. From A4 mk2 you can send three types of signals to 0-coast:
MIDI via MIDI out from A4mk2 to MIDI in of 0-coast using standard MIDI cable and 0-coast included adapter (MIDI to 3,5mm TRS jack). These signals can not be sequenced but you can use the keyboard. Check the MIDI channels on both machines to be on the same channel. Easypeasy.
Gates from CV port of A4mk2 to typically the GATE input in the Contour section (or wherever). Thats the easiest way to use internal sequencer of A4mk2 with external gear.
CV signals from CV port of A4mk2 to typically the 1V/OCT input (or wherever). Gate and CV signals can be sequenced by A4. You probably want to tune the CV signals. Or not. Whatever rocks your boat.
Got it and sorry I was trying to learn so many new gears at one time dude! I mean learning the A4, OT, Volca Beats, and 0-coast is tons of stuff to master at once
Even a genius like you has to admit that
Anyways its all good fun. I have the OT sequence the 0-coast and was lot of fun sequencing it and using the OT to play the keyboard for the synth and patching the 0-coast makes me want to get into modular one day. I am digging the quirkiness of west coast synthesis with my taste into Make Noise gear compared to the Moog Sub 37 I cut my teeth on.
The Korg Volca beats is probably the easiest piece of gear to get working right away and I love the tiny size and sounds are decent. It is no Digitakt or Rytm but for beats I don’t need that level of features yet.
I will go back and watch the videos and read the guides and manuals recommended. Thank you guys for your patience and help, I really do appreciate it!
Of all the gears, the OT is the deepest in many ways. I love the option to craft your very own wave forms and such with the LFO editor which is way cool! I took a boring empty patch from the A4 and make a wacky patch with it.
