You could also try a Korg SQ-1 and use the 2v limit.

I went through this a little bit already. In my experience, the CT5 just ignores CV greater than 3.3vdc up to 5vdc. A simple resistive voltage divider suggested by Scott worked great to force the range of 0 to +5vdc to a max of +3.3vdc. Scott, I hope you don't mind me quoting here …

"One way to do it would be to have a CV from your synth going to a TRS cable, with the voltage on the Tip and the Ground on the Sleeve. Leave the ring disconnected. This *should* work ok as long as the input is 0-5V BUT the pedal will only respond to 0-3V, and at 3V it will just stay at "max" even if the CV passes this voltage.

SO the absolute best way to do it, and definitely waht i would recomend, would be to get 2 resistors wit ha 2:3 ratio,like 220k and 330k say (very common values) and use it as a voltage divider from your 0-5V out to scale it to 0-3, then plug that into the TRS as described in the previous paragraph and everything should be good, and it will respond to the full 0-5v scale, because you actually just shrank it to 0-3V. You could probably cram the 2 resistors into the shell of the TRS and just have one slick magic cable "

But that'd cut off the top 1.3 volts :( Wish they just implemented a 3.3v mode! I'd been planning on getting a sq-1 also but it'd be kinda lame to not have full range.

But, is it safe to send it +5v in your experience? I don't mind working in a constrained range on my 5v sequencer, as long as sending it 5v won't destroy it!

Also, I'm not sure what you mean about cramming the resistors inside the shell of the cable, I'm not super experienced with how cables work - I really wish there was a simple eurorack-to-expression cable out on the market :\

Thanks for the response, good to know :)

I'm mentioned in an edit before but I'm not sure if you saw it - you said earlier in the thread that you'd be able to add the alternate latching softswitch behavior for 0.941k to the current firmware version - are you still planning on doing that? I know you're busy and I don't mean to bother, just figured I'd ask since it would help me a lot. Thanks a bunch!

I thought that having two CT5s would create an unholy lust for the new firmware...and it kinda has, but it turns out running two (in series or parallel) is a gas regardless

That would be awesome. I guess it's because most other loopers operate on a latching switch.... so I always thought that would be sweet on the CT5. Good to know it's gonna happen!
