Superbooth 22: Befaco AC/DC is a compact open-source 4×4 USB audio interface for your Eurorack modular Synthesizer.
Many Eurorack musicians not only work in the studio but also travel a lot with their cases. To record sounds or live sets on the go you need an audio interface or a field recorder.
Befaco has presented a module for the Superbooth 22 that can help here. And it could also open new possibilities to process sounds with other devices.
Highway to hell, dum dum.. highway to hell… Sorry, we’re not talking about the band. AC/DC is in this case, a new open-source DC-coupled USB audio interface module with 4 input and 4 output channels for Eurorack. It is based on the new Rebel Tech Xibeca hardware platform that provides 16bit/48kHz audio quality.
The module is very useful for mobile setups and travel since it takes up only 6HP in the rack, has only 40 mm depth, and represents a full interface. It also provides compatibility with the OWL platform. This allows you to go expand the module functionalities. Perfect for musicians with a nerd factor.
Looks like a super handy module. I hope it works with iOS too so you could route your sounds in iOS apps, process them and route them back in the rack.
Befaco AC/DC will be available on June 3rd, 2022 for 300€ + VAT in an assembled version or 170€ + VAT for the DIY kit. The module is ready for pre-order.

Looks like it does work with iOS according to the product page: “It is compatible with all popular DAW and CV generators, and also as audio and CV processor for iOS apps”. This makes it extremely valuable.
