Befaco - Slew limiter

Product information "Befaco - Slew limiter"
A voltage controlled slew limiter, AKA Lag Processor. Slew limiter is a device that smoothes an incoming signal, limiting the maximum rate of the output voltage over time. It is widely used with pitch CVs to obtain portamento and CV slides, but is also very useful for converting a gate signal into a basic envelope. Features: • A Slew limiter is a device that smoothes an incoming signal, limiting the maximum rate of change of the output voltage over time. It is widely used with pitch CVs to obtain portamento but is also very useful for converting a gate signal into a basic envelope. • The module has independent time controls for rising and falling voltages, each with it’s own CV. • The “SHAPE” control allows you to change the curve response from linear to logarithmic. DIY-Kit-Type: THT-Kit-1. This is a Do-It-Yourself kit, not an assembled module. The kit includes all parts to build the module. Only trough-hole parts to solder. Make sure to check the build guide before you buy. For build guide, more info, videos etc. please check the buttons below.

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.
