The René music synthesizer module is the world’s only Cartesian Sequencer for music synthesizers. Named for the French philosopher & mathematician René Descartes, it uses his Cartesian coordinate system to unlock the analog step sequencer from the shackles of linearity.
Usage of boolean operations between trigger inputs.
Provides quantized voltages and also unquantized voltages at the same time.

-Maximum amount of artist controlled musical variation, derived from minimum amount of data input
-ALL programming done real-time, programming of René is a key performance element
-Up to 4 clock inputs and 2 CV inputs may be used simultaneously to achieve complex, musical patterns
-1 Quantized Voltage Out (forced to programmed musical scales) useful for controlling pitch on DPO
-1 non-quantized voltage out, useful for controlling timbre or pitch throughout the system
-2 gate/ pulse streams, useful for generating Timing Events within a patch or to Trigger an Function Generator such as MATHS
Voice Allocator / Note Hocketing / Analog Shift Register
Patching is all about creativity. You could simply mult your sequence across your rack or let Shifty spread the notes across time, holding, swapping and routing them. Queue up notes or CV for distribution to up to four modules and dive into the world of hocketing, shift registers and pseudo polyphony.
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.
Great space effective unity mixer for audio and cv. Trimpot on the back for gain staging.
Module A-138u is a simple, low-cost mixer with two units. Each unit is equipped with three inputs and one output. The upper unit has for each input a trimming potentiometer available that allows to adjust the amplification in the range 0…+1 for each input (factory setting is 1 for all inputs). The inputs of the lower unit all have the same amplification +1.
The output of the upper unit is normalled to the first input of the lower unit. That way the module can be used also as a mixer with five inputs: for this the inputs 1, 2 and 3 of the upper unit ad the inputs 2 and 3 of the lower unit are used. The sum output for all five signals is then the output of the lower unit. As soon as a plug is inserted into input 1 of the lower unit the module becomes a dual 3-in-1 mixer again.
Inputs and Outputs are DC-coupled, i.e. audio and control signals can be mixed.
Mixer for audio signals, e.g. three VCOs preceding a VCF, when the amplifications are adjusted slightly different no signal extinction occurs during the beat of the VCOs
Mixer for control voltages (e.g. LFOs, envelope generators, random voltages)
