Yes, Bitspeek (Note CV out) or Neptune (Pitch CV out convertible into Note CV with some CV math through Thor or CV Spiders) can play any rack instrument monophonically.
So, singing or playing a flute, a guitar (monophonically), a violin, a clarinet, etc... through direct audio input or as an audio track sent to any of those 2 devices can drive any instrument with Gate+Note CV inputs at the back.
This is why sometimes I think some Reason users don't actually know what they have in their hands when I see some feature requests or new REs doing what was already possible before with native devices unless you're a Reason Essentials user, then some of those REs are a blessing.
