Rampage is Befaco’s approach to an old invention: the Serge/Buchla ramp generator.
We took the idea of a “patch programmable” function generator/processor, put two units in the same module and expanded them with new functions and ways to combine them: Slope detectors, analogue logic functions and evolved outputs.
- Built around two voltage controlled Integrators aka Lag Processors.
- Convert square signals into ramp waveforms
- Achieve “Portamento” or “Glide” effect when applied to pitch CV signals.
- Basic lowpass filtering
- Current needs: +12V: 110mA, -12V: 90mA
- Width: 18 HP
- Depth: 30 mm (including power connector)
- Aluminium, heat-treated front panel
- Designed, kits prepared and completed modules assembled in Barcelona
-Voltage controlled Attack Decay envelope.
-Attack Sustain Release Envelope .
-More complex ADSR Style Envelope.
-Dual VCO. With Square, PWM, Saw, Log, Exp and Triangle shapes. Hard and soft sync.
-VCO + Analog AND Gate (As ADTimbral VCA)
-Dual Low Pass Filter
-Dual Low pass Filter with VCO soft sync.
-Low Pass Filter + AD Envelope
-Dual “syncable” voltage controlled LFO with Square, PWM, Saw and Triangle shapes)
-Complex LFO . Function combination.
-CV controlled and “Ping-Pong” LFO.
-Dual Slope detector. Distinguishes when and incoming signal (CV or audio) is rising or falling, and generates gates in concordance.
-Comparator. Send a gate when B IN is bigger than A IN
-Polyrythmic gate generator. With both channels synced between each other, it generates several “complex rhythm” gates.
-Voltage controlled Slew limiter with independent attack and decay control and continuous variable shape between Log, linear and expo
-Peak Voltage follower. Max Out follow the maximum Level of the two inputs.
-Minimum Voltage Follower. Min Out follow the minimum level of the two inputs
-Envelope follower with adjustable response for rising ans falling flanks.
-Voltage controlled Trigger Delay .
