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.
