RAMPAGE

Rampage is Befaco’s approach to an old invention: the Serge/Buchla ramp generator.

We took the idea of a “patch programmable” function generator/processor, put two units in the same module and expanded them with new functions and ways to combine them: Slope detectors, analogue logic functions and evolved outputs.

FEATURES

  • Built around two voltage controlled Integrators aka Lag Processors.
  • Convert square signals into ramp waveforms
  • Achieve “Portamento” or “Glide” effect when applied to pitch CV signals.
  • Basic lowpass filtering

SPECS

  • Current needs: +12V: 110mA, -12V: 90mA
  • Width: 18 HP
  • Depth: 30 mm (including power connector)
  • Aluminium, heat-treated front panel
  • Designed, kits prepared and completed modules assembled in Barcelona
  • View in Modular Grid

RAMPAGE APPLICATIONS

  • Voltage controlled Attack Decay envelope.
  • Attack Sustain Release Envelope .
  • More complex ADSR Style Envelope.
  • Dual VCO. With Square, PWM, Saw, Log, Exp and Triangle shapes. Hard and soft sync.
  • Gated VCO
  • VCO + Analog AND Gate (As ADTimbral VCA)
  • Dual Low Pass Filter
  • Dual Low pass Filter with VCO soft sync.
  • Low Pass Filter + AD Envelope

  • Dual “syncable” voltage controlled LFO with Square, PWM, Saw and Triangle shapes)
  • Complex LFO . Function combination.
  • CV controlled and “Ping-Pong” LFO.
  • Dual Slope detector. Distinguishes when and incoming signal (CV or audio) is rising or falling, and generates gates in concordance.
  • Comparator. Send a gate when B IN is bigger than A IN
  • Polyrythmic gate generator. With both channels synced between each other, it generates several “complex rhythm” gates.
  • Voltage controlled Slew limiter with independent attack and decay control and continuous variable shape between Log, linear and exponential

  • Peak Voltage follower. Max Out follow the maximum Level of the two inputs.
  • Minimum Voltage Follower. Min Out follow the minimum level of the two inputs
  • Envelope follower with adjustable response for rising ans falling flanks.
  • Voltage controlled Trigger Delay .
  • Burst Generator.
