Features

The mod is made to understand incomming MIDI signals. When activated it will overtake the controll of the ±50% ultrapitch and change the value corresponding to the note played on a MIDI-keyboard.
The ±10% is still in use and can be used to correct out of tune samples.

The mod can play 20 notes from C0-G1 where C1 is 0%.
A switch is used to select between MIDI and regular use of the ultrapitch.

Works on both PDX-2000 and PDX-2000 mk2
