The Manta Mate acts as an embedded USB host, meaning it can be used with a multitude of MIDI controllers and even HID devices like joysticks or gamepads. Connecting a computer to control the outputs with a DAW is possible as well. The module offers twelve CV outputs, which can be configured in several ways. Four of them come equipped with 16-bit converters. The other channels feature 12-bit converters. The Manta Mate can be utilized as a monophonic or up to four-voice polyphonic MIDI-CV interface. Besides notes, the module is able to translate velocity values and / or continuous control data. Microtonal options allow users to play outside the equal-tempered scale. The Mate’s arpeggiator can be synchronized to external equipment via a clock input. The same applies for the sequencer mode. It is tailormade for the Manta controller and transforms the setup into a composition tool with two tracks. Each channel features up to 32 steps, multiple patterns and shift functions. Finalized configurations and sequences can be stored inside the Manta Mate.
