My most recent project, the USB-Octomod, uses Processing to create an OpenSoundControl (OSC) interface between any OSC-ready software and a hardware CV device I built using a Teensy 2.0 microcontroller and two MAX5250 DAC chips.
In this article, I'm going to break down the connections between the different pieces of software and hardware used, in order to explain how the system works and to provide the basis for a future tutorial on how one might use the device.
You can read more about the Octomod here, but it essentially allows computer control over the analog control voltages commonly used in analog synthesizers.

I've had a moment to return briefly to working with using Max to control the Moog Modular V as I described in this article (that contains a link to a PDF file listing the complete Moog Modular V VST plug-in parameters as they appear at the time of this writing).
