Birdkids - The Bateleur System


An entire, small synthesizer system consisting of the awesome Birdkids modules, together representing a combination that makes sense. It is housed in a Frap Puls enclosure with power supply.
There's no way to get hold of Birdkids products for a lower price then whith the Bateleur bundle being significantly cheaper than the individual modules.



The Bateleur complete system in 42 HP consists of following parts:

  • Power supply via USB which simultaneously acts as a USB-MIDI to CV/gate/Clock interface with 16Bit resolution.
  • a digital A(H)DSR envelope generator with looping function and retrigger
  • Bateleur VCO, a discrete analog high-end oscillaotr with integrated 4-pole filter
  • VCO expander, adding resonance control, FM and a VCA
  • Four-channel mixer with integrated nosie generator
  • Frap Tools Plus - a rugged enclosure in 42HP width, with nice wooden cheeks
