The heart of Frames is a 4-channel digitally controlled analog VCA. Through flexible input/output mixing and normalling options, it can be patched to serve the following purposes (among others): * 4-channel attenuator/VCA. * 4-channel mixer. * 4-channel programmable CV source. * Quadraphonic panner.
I/O: * 4x DC-coupled signal inputs * 4x Attenuated signal outputs * Global signal input normalled to all inputs * Mix output * Frame control CV input * Frame change trigger output
Controls: * 4x Channel level control with LEDs for visualizing levels * Frame control with RGB LED backlight * Frame CV attenuverter * Keyframe creation/suppression buttons
Technical characteristics: * CV inputs impedance: 100k. * Audio input impedance: 100k (25k for the global input in some configurations due to normalling). * Cortex-M3 ARM processor. * Open-source hardware and firmware. * Easy firmware updates through an audio interface.
The DRUM-08 module is based upon the clap-sound-circuit of our MFB-522 drum-computer, slightly modified and expanded. In comparison to the MFB-522, DRUM-08 offers more sound shaping parameters, some of them under CV-control. In addition, the module works in stereo.
6 Channel, 3 Bus CV/Audio Mixer w/Digitally-Controlled Muting
Blending signals and mixing audio is what patching is all about. Consider mixing up to six audio or CV signals down to three separate busses. Now take it a step beyond by sequencing or toggling mute states on the incoming signals with CV from a clock source, sequencer or even a random source.
Your modular system is capable of generating complex, fluid and interesting voltages. Use the µScale to transform these voltages into musical pitches to control your oscillators and other sound sources. Modulate the results to introduce musical changes and patterns. Experience the magic of turning chaos into harmonious tones.
