The PRO SOLO Mk3 is a high specification, extremely accurate and flexible MIDI to control voltage converter. This new third version of our longrunning PRO SOLO series now includes additional auxiliary outputs, a built-in ADSR envelope generator and the ability to generate trigger outputs for drum synthesizers.

  • Super-fast response time
  • CV output uses high specification 16 bit D/A converter for rock-steady pitches
  • Famous Kenton build quality

The latest in Kenton's popular Pro Solo line of converters, the Pro Solo mk3 features a number of improvements over its predecessor; including 3 continuously variable auxiliary outputs, a built-in ADSR envelope generator, the ability to smooth out steppy MIDI CCs and more.

The Pro Solo mk3 is highly configurable and is the ideal converter for anyone looking to incorporate an analogue synthesizer, vintage or otherwise, into their MIDI setup. The CV output can operate at 1V/Oct, Hz/Volt or 1.2V/Oct. The scaling and tuning are adjustable, to accommodate any unruly synths. The Gate output can work at several different voltage levels, and can also be set to work a S-trig instead.

The three continuously variable auxiliary outputs are presented on 3.5mm jack sockets; and can be configured to respond to MIDI CCs, velocity, aftertouch, clock and more. In addition to this, the MIDI OUT port can be switched to output Sync24, so your vintage Roland equipment can join in as well.

All leads are sold separately as we do not know what you want to connect to.

  • Separate Controllers for LFO to CV and LFO to Aux 1
  • LFO can be synchronised to MIDI clock
  • LFO sync point can be selected
  • Key-on can reset LFO
  • Aux outputs can output clock, with two individual dividers to choose from
  • All parameters are controllable in real-time by SysEx

What’s new or different about the Mk3?

  • Aux 2 & Aux 3 are now continuously variable analogue outputs and are presented on 3.5mm jack sockets
  • Expanded selection of Controllers available for the Aux outputs
  • The Aux outputs now have adjustable slew rate (rise/fall time) to enable you to smooth out any controller jumps
  • Built-in ADSR envelope generator (the controls for which can be assigned to MIDI CCs)
  • Drum Trigger mode – Aux outputs can be set to produce a velocity-variable trigger pulse for drum synths, each with its own dedicated trigger note
  • Dual clock dividers, which can be used simultaneously on different outputs, including the DIN socket when not used as MIDI out
  • Variable gate-off time for re-trigger (multiple trigger)
  • 32 program memories which can store and recall setups
  • MIDI Program Changes can be used to recall setups
  • Pre-loaded setups for many of the most popular synths
  • Pitchbend range increased to 48 notes up & down
  • Flash upgradable using SysEx when updates become available
  • 32 bit ARM processor
  • Brushed aluminium case with black text
  • Power: 9V DC (regulated or unregulated) – never apply more than 12V(never use an unregulated supply greater than 9V as unregulated supplies typically give a higher output than shown). 9V switch mode power supply included. 
  • Dimensions: 140 x 87 x 45 mm
  • Weight: 210g
  • MIDI: In, Thru (selectable)
  • Analogue Outputs: CV on 3.5mm jack (V/oct or Hz/V)
  • Gate on 3.5mm jack (Gate or S-trig)
  • Aux 1, 2 & 3 on 3.5 mm jack
  • Sync 24 Output: MIDI Thru socket switchable to work as Sync 24 output instead, with variable CPQN ratio
