About This Listing

Keyframer/mixer

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.

But what makes it truly unique is the way in which channel levels can be controlled, using a technique inspired by computer animation. Frames allows up to 64 configurations of the 4 level knobs to be stored and recalled throughout the course of its big "Frame" knob. By rotating the knob (or sending a CV to the Frame modulation input), the configurations are morphed into one another.

To fine-tune the animation and get varied morphing or sequencing results, the following options are available for each of the 4 channel:

  • Easing curve (stepped, linear, exponential, logarithmic, sine, bouncy)
  • Attenuation response of the level knob, from linear to logarithmic

With a bit of patching and imagination, Frames can also be repurposed as a 4-channel sequencer, a multi-stage envelope generator, a trajectory generator for quadraphonic panning.

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.
