This is the shorthand to say a synthesizer may be controlled by voltages (see control voltage above) – usually for pitch – and gate signals to indicate when a note is “on.” An increasing number of controller keyboards are including CV/Gate output in addition to the customary MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), making them much easier to connect to a modular synthesizer, as no additional MIDI to CV interface is required.
