Frap Tools Intros New Modules, Bagài and 411, at Superbooth 2024

Ahead of Superbooth 2024, Frap Tools has unveiled two new Eurorack modules: Bagài and 411.

Bagài is an analog sample and hold, bit crusher, and down sampler, also capable of generating fluctuating random voltages, colored noise, and clock bursts.

It consists of six highly intertwined sections:

  • A clock with straight and random outputs (yellow)
  • An analog noise generator with variable color (grey)
  • A bipolar fluctuating random voltage generator (white) with variable rate
  • A sample and hold the circuit (orange) with selectable time scale, slow for modulation, or fast for audio sampling up to 48 kHz.
  • An 8-bit quantized version of the orange S&H circuit with variable bit depth (red)
  • A clock burst section (green).

By default, it outputs bipolar random voltages and triggers. The voltages are fluctuating, stepped, and quantized with selectable bit depth. The clocks are straight,randomized, or “burst”. Once you start patching, you can use it as a S&H, audio downsampled, and bitcrusher, with a sample rate of 48 kHz.

All its major parameters are voltage controllable.

Size: 12 HP

The 411 is a quadruple linear VCA, mixer, and multiple for audio and CV. It consists of four linear vcas with semi-normalled inputs and CV inputs, -6 dB attenuation switches, a mixed output, and an unpatched output.

The 411’s architecture allows to use it in many ways, for example:

  • processing four signals independently;
  • modulating one signal with four CVS and send it to four different destinations;
  • mixing up to four signals and modulate them with the same CV;
  • mixing two audio signals and modulate them with a modulated CV.

Size: 6 HP
