"...My recent purchase of your modular solo has brought me nothing but joy and greatly improved my eurorack- computer communications. Solid clock as well.!"

"... Kenton Midi USB Host to the rescue ... Works a treat, straight out of the box, arrived the next day. What more can I say?"

We don't currently make an internal retrofit for the Moog Rogue although we used to in the past (1986-2003) and we may do again at some time in the future. Currently however the only option is to use it with one of our range of MIDI (or USB) to CV converters - there is more information on our converters below in section 2.

If you want to control your Moog Rogue using MIDI, then you will need to consider all of the following:
1) Sockets - locating and connecting to the appropriate sockets & possibly an additional socket.
2) MIDI to CV converter and the correct settings for it
3) Leads - selecting the correct ones

1) Sockets
The Moog Rogue is already fitted with CV & Trig control sockets, which is all you need for control of the notes, however it could benefit from fitting an additional socket for control of the filter cutoff frequency. The two relevant sockets fitted as standard are as follows:

CV INPUT ( for controlling the pitch of the notes)
Socket type: 1/4" stereo jack
Connections: Tip = CV out, Ring = CV in, Sleeve = Ground (to screen)
Setting for CV converter: Volts per Octave (CV) - this is the default setting on our converters

GATE/TRIG INPUT (for controlling when the notes play)
Labelled: TRIG IN/OUT
Socket type: 1/4" stereo jack
Connections (Jack): Tip = s-trig in/out, Ring = v-trig in/out, Sleeve = Ground (to screen)
Setting for CV converter: Gate (5V) - this is the default setting on our converters
We find that Gate works better than S-trig on this synth

These connections are described on pages 7 & 8 of the Moog Rogue user manual

As mentioned above, Kenton make a 1 socket upgrade for this model which provides a filter cutoff control socket. This will enable you to change the filter cutoff amount using your sequencer or MIDI keyboard.This upgrade is available either as a kit for fitting by your own engineer, or fully fitted by us at our premises in London. This input (if fitted) is a 3.5mm mono jack.

2) MIDI to CV converter (or USB MIDI to CV converter)
Use this link to see the range of Kenton converters suitable for this model

Kenton MIDI to CV converters

Use the following settings on the converter for this synthesiser:
CV - This synthesiser requires 1 Volt per Octave control. Set the CV select parameter to CV or Volts/Octave - this is the Kenton default setting
Gate/Trig - This synthesiser requires a 5 volt gate signal- this is the Kenton default setting
Aux1/Filter - The upgrade socket requires a 0-10V analogue signal - this is the Kenton default setting

If you don't know anything about MIDI to CV converters and would like to know more, read the following page on our website:

3) Leads

You will need the following:
2 x 3.5mm mono jack to RING of 1/4" stereo jack lead (available in three lengths)
1 x 3.5mm to 3.5mm mono jack lead (for filter socket if fitted) (available in four lengths)
