Frap Tools CGM Group (G)

Modular mixing solution for eurorack modular systems

The current G module is an updated version of the now-discontinued 2016 G. Its functions are the same as the old one, but it features significant design upgrades that improve its usability: the selectors for the group output’s behavior are now on the front panel, and the knob is now 12 mm in diameter, like the new SC and QSC.
The G (Group) is a stereo module that blends the signals coming from the channels linked to it (up to eight) and manages their signal routing.

The module ships with a 1-group-to-2-channels link system to connect it to two channel modules (either SC or QSC). To connect more channels, one can purchase separately the other Link System options:

  • F-G1C2-LS CGM Link System – 1 Group to 2 Channel Modules
  • F-G1C4-LS CGM Link System – 1 Group to 4 Channel Modules
  • F-G1C8-LS CGM Link System – 1 Group to 8 Channel Modules

The older group-to-channel Link Cables are still compatible.
The group is a stereo module that blends the signals coming from the channels linked to it (up to eight) and manages their signal routing.

The group “puts into practice” all the information defined by the channels’ controls: volume, effect send volume, stereo panning.

It consists of three sections: the amplitude controls (white) and the two effect sends and returns (yellow and green).

A switch lets you define the group outputs’ behavior: it can be either the sum of all the channels and their effect return or just the wet signal.

The first option is great for smaller setups, where you can use the group as your system’s output without a master module.

Should you have a master, the second option allows for more advanced effects parallel processing or multitrack recording.

Mono Send and Voltage-Controlled Stereo FX Return

The group has two independent monophonic outputs and stereo inputs to create effect send/returns. (The mono output signal is the sum of all the channels’ send levels.) A CV over the stereo return level allows you to automate the effect section, like for gated reverbs, but also to use the stereo return as an auxiliary stereo channel.

Assignable Stereo Outputs

Two outputs (left and right) provide either the local sum of all the channels connected to the group and their effect or just the wet sounds (for further parallel processing). A jumper on the back selects the behavior.

Mute Button

The mute button allows you to remove a group from the master sum with a click. The mute doesn’t affect the local outputs: in smaller systems, where a group is the output module, it prevents accidental muting; in larger setups, it keeps the local outputs active for creative parallel processing.

Safe Solo Switch

The switch lets you solo a “scene” of prepared channels set up through their solo-in-place buttons or switches. It can be seen as a mute group function that allows you to mute all the channels outside the solo scene with a click.

PFL Button

The PFL button routes the group to the master’s PFL section, allowing you to pre-listen the whole group when muted or with the fader all the way down.

Saturation

Two peak LEDs show when the group is clipping. However, don’t be shy! You can clip the group on purpose and enhance your sound, either with a creamy saturation or a significant distortion.
