Befaco FXBoy - Analog FX for Eurorack on a Gameboy Cartridge

video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Happy and excited to be part of @modulardaybarcelona tomorrow - it's a super nice #modular #meet in Barcelona, Spain, with DIY #workshops, lots of great #synth makers and performances. We will be showing our #Stolperbeats drum trigger sequencer as well as the #Befaco FXboy, a #collab module between @Befacosynth @tesseractmodular3149 @MakingSoundMachines @touellskouarn6916 @xorelectronics @instruo and @feedbackmodules9902.

The module has a slot that takes cartridges in the same form factor as the @NintendoJP #gameboy, but with an #audio #effect circuit on it. This allows you to hot-swap #fx #circuits on you eurorack #modular #synth on the go, taking one cartridge out and replacing it with another as you jam. Our cart has an #analog #waveshaper on it, and provides you with #visual #feedback on the incoming CV with #colorful #LEDs shining through the translucent case.

Today's video is a little jam that happened when packing for Modular Day! Stolperbeats is seen here sequencing the #CycloneAnalogic TT-78, a drum machine inspired by the #classic #Roland CR-78 analog drum synth. The individual outputs are processed with the #FXboy, as well as our Farbhighpass transistor ladder highpass filter.

If you've been eyeing one of our #eurorack #DIY #kits and you want to build it together with us, Modular Day will be the the #perfect #opportunity! Hang out with us and build a Farbfolder, Farbshaper, Farbhighpass or TausenddB and Multiplikand with us.
