Fr@mes / 8hp uFrames with slider / Silver Panel

Fr@mes / 8hp Slider version of Mutable Instruments Frames / Mixer / Keyframer / uFrames / Silver Panel

This is a 8HP slider version of Mutable Instrument Frames / uFrames. Powerful 4channel mixer, morphing controller, CV switch/blender for audio & CV. Capable to save 20 keyframes, each keyframe storing VCA CVs for each channel.

The heart of Frames is a 4-channel VCA and mixer under tight digital control.

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 signal dispatcher.

But what makes Frames truly unique is the way in which channel gains/CV levels can be controlled, using a technique inspired by computer animation.
By rotating this Frames knob (or sending a CV to the Frame modulation input and adjusting its amount with the attenuverter), the configurations are morphed into one another. With a bit of patching and imagination, Frames can also be repurposed as a 4-channel sequencer, a multi-stage envelope generator or a trajectory generator for quadraphonic panning... more info on Mutable Instruments site.

Comes with stock firmware. On request it can be loaded with FramesParasite firmware.
