Moessieurs Mondays: The MONTAGE A/D Input

Moessieurs Mondays: The MONTAGE A/D Input
The A/D Input on MONTAGE is a cool way to bring external audio from a microphone or line input into the Motion Control system. A/D parameters can be controlled with the Super Knob. Standard Part parameters like volume and pan are one possibility, but the real magic happens when control is assigned to the Insertion Effects. Plus you have the Envelope Follower, Vocoder and Auto Beat Sync capability. Check out the video below from Moessieurs on the A/D Input below:
