How CVs actually work in plain english

CVs (configuration variable) can seem scary at first, but under the hood they are very simple when looked at from a different perspective.

A CV consists 8 blank spaces called bits. Each bit has a value based on simple math.


The 8 spaces (bits) that make up the CV can be used in a few different ways.

1. Used as a set of 8 simple on/off switches.

2. Used as a selection menu consisting of up to 255 items to choose from.

3. Used as simple knob / volume control with up to 255 steps on the knob

The key using any CV is understanding how it is setup to be used.
