The Birdkids POWER/MIDI is used in the Bateleur System but is also available on its own.

It provides a small modular system with power via USB Micro B and is also a 16bit USB/MIDI-CV interface. It transmits pitch-, modulation-, velocity- and gate signals.

It is recommended to use an USB power supply with at least 2A!

maximum power:
• 400 mA > 12V > 300 mA
• 300 mA > -12V > 250 mA

The Bateleur System

The Bateleur System offers the complete Bateleur Series in a compact 42HP case to a special low price and consists of following parts:

– birdkids Power Midi: power supply via USB which simultaneously acts as a USB-MIDI to CV/gate/Clock interface with 16Bit resolution
– birdkids ADSR Multimode Envelope: a digital A(H)DSR envelope generator with looping function and retrigger
– birdkids Bateleur VCO, a discrete analog high-end oscillaotr with integrated 4-pole filter
– birdkids VCO expander, adding resonance control, FM and a VCA
– birdkids Mixer/Noise: four-channel mixer with integrated noise generator

This all comes in a Frap Tools Plus case – a rugged enclosure in 42HP width, with nice wooden cheeks.

The Bateleur Expander adds the following features to the main module:

– The resonance knob acts either as a manual control for the filter resonance of main module or as an attenuator if something is patched into the resonance CV input
– Additional CV input with attenuator for the filter cutoff frequency of the main module
– Exponential FM input for the main modules oscillator
– VCA with input- and CV-attenuator

The Bateleur combines a discrete analog VCO with a discrete analog lowpass filter.
The filter can be switched to self oscillation mode, perfectly suited to act as a sine wave oscillator for modulating the Thru Zero analog VCO.

VCO
The VCO offers a very massive sound with a distinctive vintage flavor.
It outputs the classic waveforms sine, triangle, sawtooth, pulse and an additional pulse wave that is tuned one octave below the core frequency.
Two nice and big knobs take care of the coarse tune in a range of 5 octaves as well as the fine tune within +/- 7 semitones.
The pulse width of the pulse output offers manual control as well as PWM.
Simple portamento effects can be achieved with the glide control, no need for an external slew limiter.
The Bateleur VCO can either work in linear FM or Thru Zero FM mode.

VCF
The classic, thick sounding 24-dB lowpass filter pairs very well with the VCO. Of course it can be used as a standalone filter, but the way the inputs and outputs are arranged at The Bateleur VCO, and the fact that there is no knob to control the resonance, but instead it uses a switch which either offers no resonance or selfoscillation, hint at the strong relationship between the VCO and VCF in this module. The filter is perfectly suited to fulfill the role of a modulation oscillator in an FM scenario as well as being a waveshaper for the classic oscillator waveforms. Having the 1V/oct VCO input normalized to the cutoff CV input of the filter underlines this even more.
