Complex-1 "CV Section" as Separate Device

Have any feature requests? No promise they'll get to Reason Studios, but you can still discuss them here.

Hi RT

Although Complex-1 is a separate (or R+) device, I think it would be awesome if we had that lower CV section as a utility device available to all.

It actually really bums me out that Reason Studios hasn't ever addressed the lack of new/updated Utility devices (besides the recent Combinator).
Routing cables and manipulating audio and CV connections - I think - is the prime feature of Reason. Yet Reason has provided very little in this regard, and instead we have to rely on 3rd party RE's.

Making CV note quantizes, pitch-tracking and some additional Functions - taken from Complex-1 - to be made available to all users would be an easy and awesome addition.

Updated Spiders, and update Matrix would be great enhancements too.

I know RS's aim is to make music making more fun and streamlined, but I think the majority of us also really enjoy the modular and CV aspect of Reason.

As there are a plenty 3rd party CV tools in the RE shop and the almighty Thor as well, I highly doubt RS will spend time or resources on developing more CV utilities. Also you can of course use the CV section of Complex-1 for your CV needs, so there's no point in having it as a separate device.

+1 to this for me, if it means less cpu usage

I still think there is a point though, Thors CV manipulation capabilities are limited compared to Complex-1.

And I'm looking for RS to complete their offering and support some one of their key/unique features.

I used Complex as an example though, because they have it there already - they could even take some pointers from the 3rd Party REs

Complex-1 works in parts of this "module" with audio signals too. I whish RS would give up CV and only use audio signals, even if it would have an impact on performance. I never understood, whiý a few devs didnt used audio inputs instead of CV inputs. Only a few devices have both, like VK-2.
