Frap Tools UNO

Designed and crafted in Italy, by passionate designers and synthesizer lovers, the UNO will redefine the quality of this products category. The mix of wonderful materials, simple shapes and highly engineered solutions results in a durable product that ages beautifully.

The UNO is a premium product designed to be the flagship in the Eurorack Case universe. The simple, yet highly functional design has been developed by musicians for musicians, to guarantee the best experience ever. All screws and folding mechanics are hidden within an extremely well-constructed case, with an elegant form and beautiful lines.

With the UNO, the user can use its current (or favorite) power supply system — each row comes with a support plate which hosts his preferred power board. The UNO supports eurorack modules up to 55mm deep in the upper and lower row, and up to 70mm deep in the middle row (depending on the main power board installed).

The elegant high-quality wood, looks and feels like no other: it will be available in different flavors, so the user can choose the one that best fits with his style. All woods are hand finished with clear boiled linseed oil, in order to emphasize the warmth and feeling of the material — no colors are applied.

When needed, user can instantly fold the UNO —without any need to unplug the patch cables — and take it with him on the road. It also meets the current airline carry-on luggage dimension requirements — an optional bag built with waterproof fabric and foam will be also available.

The UNO will be available from Summer 2015.

Audio Damage releases Mad Hatter Eurorack module

Audio Damage Mad Hatter

Audio Damage has launched Mad Hatter, a new Eurorack format digital noise module.

What do you get when you take a shift register noise generator and the six-square-wave oscillator stack from the TR606 cymbal source and put ‘em in one unit? Mad Hatter!

As a digital noise source, Mad Hatter is, well, as versatile as a digital noise source can really be. The COLOR control and CV input is the clock speed of the shift register, from chaotic oscillations to white noise.

This noise is then paired with the oscillator stack, six square waves at frequencies measured from our own TR-606. (For added versatility, the COLOR knob also controls the pitch of two of those oscillators, sweeping them over a 1-octave range.) The oscillators run through a pair of bandpass filters, in the same manner as the TR-606’s cymbal sound.

This whole mess goes to a high-pass filter, with a frequency controlled with the HPF FILTER FREQ knob and CV input. After that, it’s out the out-hole to your favorite VCA, for easy-to-patch hi-hat and cymbal sounds.

Mad Hatter features

  • Digital shift register noise plus 6 square wave oscillators for easy x0x-style cymbal synthesis.
  • COLOR knob controls shift register noise clock and oscillator stack pitch.
  • HPF FREQ knob controls high-pass filter frequency.
  • CROSSFADE knob mixes from audio input, through noise, to oscillator stack.
  • CV control of all parameters.
  • 8HP panel size.
  • Skiff-friendly 20mm depth.
  • 90ma current draw.

Mad Hatter is available for purchase for $189 USD.
