Frap Tools, the Italian boutique Eurorack company, just introduced 321, a new smart utility module.
True to the company’s philosophy (unique products born out of specific needs, offering high-quality materials, great design and ease of use), the 321 includes very useful functions most users need in every patch, to edit and combine dynamically the signals in use.
It is composed of three identical sections, the red, yellow and green, where each of those is capable of scaling any signal, from 0 up to 2 times (+6dB), flip its phase, and apply a DC offset, allowing to shift your audio or CV up or down.
In case no signals are connected to the section input, the offset may act as a CV source too.
The three sections are then summed together into two independent summing stages: the top right jack outputs the sum of all three sections, while the top left outputs the sum of the unconnected sections only (semi-normalled).
The 321 is entirely DC coupled, allowing the process of control voltages as well as audio signals.
In case CVs or audio signals are particularly hot, the two 6dB attenuators, one per each summing section might be helpful to reduce exactly by 50% the incoming signals.
