Befaco - Muxlicer

Product information "Befaco - Muxlicer"
Muxlicer is a sequential signal processor designed for add a huge range of special functions to your modular setup in the minimum space.

Is divided in three main blocks: a Digital Step Controller, a Gate Generator and an Analog Switch (a.k.a. Mux/DeMux)

The module is designed with high “function to HP ratio” philosophy , to have maximum flexibility in minimum space.

An analog switch is a device capable of switching or routing analog signals. In the case of Muxlicer, the switch is reversible, so you can send 8 different signals to 1 destination and viceversa.

Through Common I/O you can either send a signal to the Mux I/Os or receive a signal from them. (Depending on how the module is connected). It is also used as CV Out when nothing is connected to “All In” or “Mux I/Os”. The eight Mux I/Os are normalled to “All In” jack, so any signal present at this input will go to all of them.

Imagine you want to send a signal to steps 1,2,4,5,6 and 8 and two more signals to 3 and 7 respectively. You just need three wires for this: plug the first one to All In and the other two to 3 and 7 Mux I/Os and you are done!

• Route any modular signal from one IN up to eight different Outs or vice versa.
• Generate CV and Gate signals, been able to work as sequential voltage source a.k.a. sequencer.
• Cut audio signals in rhythmical slices with independent volume.
• Generate complex and dynamic patterns from any audio or modulation signal.
• Create powerful Gate sequences with control voltage retriggering for each step.
• Select easily when your signals act on your patch with the Address function.

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.
