Mutable Instruments Frames Mixer/Keyframer

Details
The Mutable Instruments Frames Mixer/Keyframer is a 4 channel VCA and mixer with tight digital controls. Use it to mix, attenuate, morph, dispatch and animate! Channel gains/CV levels can be controlled with a unique 'keyframing' technique similar to that used in digital animation which creates sequences from a few manually adjusted moments, letting the computer interpolate the trajectory between them.

20 Configurations

The Frames Mixer/Keyframer allows up to 20 configurations of the 4 gain knobs to be stored and recalled throughout the course of its big Frame knob. By rotating this 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.

Features

An analog mixer…

4-channel voltage-controlled mixer based on the V2164 IC

  • 4 DC-coupled signal inputs
  • 1 global input, sent to all unconnected inputs, and normalized to a precision voltage reference (+5V or +10V)
  • 4 DC-coupled channel outputs
  • 1 global mix output, collecting signals from all unpatched outputs, with a -6dB gain

… under digital control

  • 12-bit digital control of the gains for the 4 VCAs
  • Up to 20 keyframes, each keyframe storing VCA CVs for each channel
  • Per-channel easing curve selection: stepped (no interpolation), linear, accelerating, decelerating, sine, bouncy
  • Per-channel CV/VCA response selection, from linear to logarithmic

Specifications

  • CV input impedance: 100k
  • Audio input impedance: 100k (25k for the global input in some configurations due to normalling)
  • Fastest modulation rate: 15kHz
