uMotion

Envelope Generator

µMOTION IS A SMALL FORMAT ADAPTATION OF THE ORIGINAL MUTABLE INSTRUMENTS “Tides” MODULE.

µMOTION IS PRE-FLASHED WITH LAST OFFICIAL OR PARASITE FIRMWARE AND FACTORY CALIBRATED

IT USES THE SAME CIRCUIT DESIGN AS THE ORIGINAL BUT IMPLEMENTED INTO ONLY 8HP

Digital function generator

- 3 operating mode: single shot (attack/decay), sustained (attack/sustain/release), looping (VC-LFO/VCDO).

- 3 frequency ranges: low (20 minutes to 5 Hz), medium (0.05 Hz to 300 Hz), high (8 Hz to 10kHz).

- Freeze gate input to stop the oscillator and hold its output.

Advanced functions

- Output level CV input (digital VCA).

- Dual outputs: standard unipolar waveform, and “double-shot” waveform with a positive spike during the ascent and a negative spike during the descent. At audio rate, both of them have a different sound.

- Accurate V/Oct tracking with straightforward calibration procedure.

- Clock input to lock onto a multiple or fraction of a trigger sequence, or to generate harmonies directly from an audio signal (PLL mode).

A large palette of waveforms

- Shape control with CV input – covering various combinations of linear, exponential, or sinusoidal segments.

- Slope/asymmetry (A/D time ratio) control with CV input.

- Smoothness control with CV input. From 0V to -5V, smoothes the waveform using a 2-pole digital filter, from 0V to +5V, adds bumps and kinks with a digital wavefolder.

Specifications

- All inputs: 100k impedance.

- CV inputs: 12-bit, 1kHz for shape/slope/smoothness, 12-bit to 6kHz for FM, 12-bit 48kHz for amplitude.

- CV Outputs: 16-bit, 48kHz.

- Output levels: +/- 5V for the BI output, 0V to +8V for the other outputs.

Width: 8 HP

Deep: 25 mm

+12V: 50 mA

-12V: 20 mA
