Frequency Central - Akropoli

Product information "Frequency Central - Akropoli"
Akropoli is an extension and enhancement of our successful Little Melody and High Towers modules, offering the features of both of these modules as well as some of it’s own unique features such as mute buttons per channel, manual transpose knob and 1V/oct transpose CV input. Akropoli operates using our proprietary TOOL V2 code, and can count in integers as well as multiples for even more subtle and evolving variations:

• top of the dial is /1
• clockwise from the top are /2, /4, /8, /16, /32, /64, /128
• anticlockwise from the top are /3, /5, /6, /7, /9, /10, /11

Akropoli is a generative sequencer based around clock divisions and a chromatic quantiser, used to create in-the-moment licks and riffs. It is more that the sum of it’s parts.

Akropoli’s internal operations can be considered as 4 clock dividers patched into a CV mixer via attenuators. The attenuators select notes over a 5 octave range, the clock dividers determine how often those notes are added to the mix. The final output of Akropoli is quantized chromatically for fast set up and continuously pleasing results. Akropoli has an onboard transposition knob, as well as a 1V/oct transposition CV input.

The 4 clock dividers are labelled A, B, C, and D. They all receive clocks from the same source, the divisions may be selected using the presets and the individual division selectors. The clock dividers can be set to count up, down, or to one of a variety of modes that move between counting up and down. For further information on Presets and Modes see the Little Melody User Guide.

Additionally, each clock divider has it’s own binary output (either high or low), these 4 outputs can be used to clock/gate/trigger other stuff on other modules to great effect.

Manufacturer "Frequency Central"

Hey there synth friends! It’s me, Rick of Frequency Central I founded Frequency Central in 2009, mostly as an excuse to my wife to spend more time messing around with synthesisers. Since that time, I and my small but trusty team of collaborators have endeavoured to crank out a range of fun and exciting Eurorack modules and accessories. By 2015 we’d dipped our toes into MU modular, we are now expanding further into that format. And now in 2024 we're just about to embark on a new adventure - fully standalone synthesisers. But... none of this would be possible without you! We value you deeply in a fraternal way, and we think you are rather special too. It is our honour and duty to design pointless yet fascinating audio tools to exhilarate your senses. Thank you so much for coming here, let’s hang out, turn the volume up to 1.61803399 and make ourselves unpopular with the local cats and dogs...
