Befaco - Crush Delay

Product information "Befaco - Crush Delay"
Crush Delay v3 is a special Echo-Delay unit based on the PT2399 IC, which is able to offer 400ms of clean delay and up to 2 seconds of dirty repetitions, having a special talent to generate noisy-glitch textures. This third version comes with some interesting new features like redesigned VCAs circuits, wider range for clean delay and reduced depth to make it skiff friendly.

• The module has two inputs (In and Return) that go to the Delay circuit through a dedicated VCA for each one. The main difference between both inputs is the signal fed into In is going to the Dry/Wet circuit also, not only to the Delay, allowing you to control the balance between the original and the processed signal present at the main output (Out).

• The signal is processed by the Delay circuit, which is affected by the Crush section. It degrades the signal at slow rates in different ways, depending on the position of the three Crush switches or by the presence of gate signals at the Crush inputs.

• After being processed, the signal is routed to three different paths. The first one goes into Dry/Wet, where it’s mixed with the original input signal (In) before going to the main output (Out). The second one is returned to the Delay circuit through another VCA (Feedback), controlling the number of repetitions of the wet signal. Finally, the last one goes directly to the Send output.

• Input signal controlled by VCA’s
• Bigger range of clean delay
• Three different Crush Modifiers based on circuit bending techniques.
• VC Feedback wit automatic gain control

Manufacturer "Befaco"

Befaco is an Eurorack manufacturer that also offers DIY kits, organizes workshops and releases their designs under Creative Commons license.

In February 2010 Befaco was created as an open hardware platform focusing on professional DIY musical hardware, materializing the previous electronic, musical and artistic research of its members.

Our main activity has been developing synthesizer modules in eurorack format and making them available in workshops. All this research is published under CC-NC-SA License, so people can download the schematics, and technical assembly guides, to make their own variations of the projects for personal and educative purposes. Also build all our designs during our regular workshops in cities as Barcelona, Madrid, London or Berlin.
During the past twelve years, apart of these regular four cities, we have visited cities as Tokyo, Kyoto, Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Lyon, Stuttgart and Amsterdam, amongst many other European cities.

These workshops are a huge test playground where we can track each module being built by different worldwide users, get direct feedback and quickly improve them with, develop new ones, or adapt these instruments to users demands constantly.

Direct contact with DIY enthusiasts allows an implication of users in the structure, allowing them to design their own modules and develop them in a professional way. This has developed into an incubation environment for several new modular initiatives, allowing different makers to start their own similar projects.

Befaco initiative is possible thanks to the support of Hangar, an artistic production centre in Barcelona, Barcelona city hall and the titanic work by the whole Befaco team.
