Post by roman_f » Mon Jun 07, 2021 8:07 pm

after shipping 288r's i'm starting a preorder for a limited run of 232r FREQUENCY DETECTOR modules

232.png

- precise input signal frequency detection
- internal oscillator with 4 waveforms following input signal's pitch
- CV/gate output with 4 different scales (1v/oct, 1.2v/oct, 2v/oct, v/hz)
- tracking filter output
- optical compressor output
- vactrol LPG controlled by the envelope follower
- deposit is $299, total price is $999 shipped
- this module should be a quicker turnaround time, shipping is expected in late august

reservations are via PayPal only, please PM or email to ro@rojomusicmachines.com if you want one
thank you

Looks great...what the hell does it do? I can't find any videos of this thing in action. To quote Dave Brown: "This is one strange design."

Cool either way. Nice to have you contributing to the format once again.

this is a so-called guitar synthesizer

it analises input signal, filters out main pitch and follows it with a built-in oscillator

outputs from the bottom to top:

- compressor out
- tracking filter out
- oscillator out
- cv out (to control extrenal oscillators)
- gate out

it also has an envelope follower, it controls a lopass gate on a top of a module

Can you please share with me what the unit does ?
I haven’t been able to find any information or videos of it in action ?
Seem’s like its super rare .
Is there any module in Buchla format or euro that is similar to it ?

It's pitch to voltage conversion. For an example of a different module that does the same thing, check out the PEF by Serge. It tracks an oscillator to any pitch you put into it.

It remembers me I wanted to do a video with my Korg X911 and it's frequency to CV output and never did :doh:
Then soon...

Anyway, having a freq to CV as a module is something I wish since ever. Unfortunately the 232r not in my budget, but really a great idea to make it for the Buchla Modular System. Bravo Roman.

Hi there, congrats for yet another interesting module Roman. So how does it look regarding the 221R ? still possible to be available this year or is it still a long way to go with no possibility to project any ETA yet ?

Looking forward to having a functional 232 in my system, as opposed to the glamourous blind panel my current one is. Glad you kept working on it. :)

Can you tell us a little about the inner workings? Is the freq detection via microcomputer? analog or digital oscillator?

Is there a standard way to preorder? I’m not getting a response to emails or PMs. Is the email in the post the PayPal address as well?

Same here, whereas previously (288r and much older projects), response to preorder inquiries was almost instant. Only tried the email way so far though.

Yeah I just hope I’m not landing in a spam folder or something. Anyone have any news?
