Hi All,

First of all, we'd like to say how excited we are to have such a positive response to QuNexus! We've worked hard on QuNexus and really value the feedback.

That being said, we want to address concerns about CV slew and the quality of our CV output... We've made a few recordings of QuNexus acting as a MIDI-over-USB to CV converter from Ableton Live 9 to an Arturia MiniBrute. We're sending a simple MIDI file out of Live on QuNexus Port 3 Channel 2. These recordings were made directly out of the MiniBrute into a griffin iMic plugged into an iMac and recorded in Live 9. There are no effects on the sound. We also put a picture of the envelope for each on the soundcloud file for each recording. On one, the attack is at 0, the decay is up a little, the sustain is up a little, and release is at 0. On the other, attack is at 0, decay is up all the way, sustain in the middle, and release is at 0.

Here is a link to the audio examples: ... v-examples

One thing to note-- version 1.0 was sent out with Gate Legato toggled on with the CV page of our editor. Make sure you are using v 1.1.1 (released July 5, 2013), Gate Legato defaults to off as this will affect the CV slew-- make sure you've updated to the newest firmware (v 1.1.1). You can grab the new editor and firmware from

Thanks and let us know if you have questions…

Hi all,

I know it's been a while, however, I've recently purchased this controller and whilst I can use it perfectly fine for playing notes, I'm finding it impossible to use it to control Ableton Live.
Specifically, I'd like to be able to launch clips with it, arm tracks, navigate between channels and map its pads to different parameters in Live.

I have copied QuNexus live script under Live's scripts and managed to enter CoMMa mode but I'm not sure what to do next.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

PS: btw, the review link doesn't work anymore
