this is the uni-noise – a circuit bend uni-vibe – there’s cv control over speed, intensity and volume – as well as a simple gate input to switch between the leslie/tremolo modes – a beautiful warm sounding effect, with a little twist: I added 12 feedback paths that can be manually chosen and used to turn this into a great little noise box…
bits & phases
this is bits & phases – it’s a hybrid of an analog bit crusher + a circuit bent mxr phaser – I added CV control over resolution and sample rate of the bit crusher – the phaser got modified a bit more: CV control over speed and intensity + a feedback path that can be mixed into the signal for extra noise and self oscillation – also, a 90 degree phase out – the bit crusher in combination with the self oscillating phaser makes it a neat little noise box…
the cig-quencer (CGS87)
this is the cig-quencer – a 8 step sequencer – likely inspired by the old buchla sequencers it comes with 3 adjustable cvs per step and 3 main cv outputs – each step can also be accessed and held by a push button – nice for creating random chords – steps can be manually skipped or held – the 3 cv outputs can be connected to just about anything that takes cv – so each step can create a distinct timbre or amplitude of its own – it is really fun to play with
the hypster (NLC)
the DUSG and bools (CGS/NLC)
this is the dusg (dual universal slope generator) + bools (boolean logic module) in one box – the bools can be switched between 2 different logic ICs – ideal pairing for mad VCs – the dusg can also be used as a filter / oscillator / subharmonic generator / etc…lots of fun!
frequency shifter (j.haible)
this is the j.haible frequency shifter (fs-1) – my absolute favorite instrument – yes, it is an instrument by itself, because of it’s feedback paths – no input needed – beautiful warm swirly and just otherworldly sounds, biting rhythmic feedback and myriads of ways to manipulate other sound sources – everything just sounds better being sent through this beautiful device (really!) – a very intricate build though, I would say the most complex I ever attempted – and I learned many lessons from this one…
this is the flowering sensor – a dual infra red motion detector – use your hands (or arms, legs, whole body, etc…) to create 2 adjustable independent CVs – these can be used to alter all sorts of parameters of other instruments / modules – excellent effects can be achieved in combination with delay modules, etc…
low passing “the bastei” gate – (dj th. white)
flowering echoes (MFOS)
the flowering echoes is a voltage controlled echo developed by Ray Wilson (MFOS) – I only added input attenuators for the cv controls of delay time and repeats – (you can also cv the intensity) – it also comes with a bypass output plus hi gain switch – I love just using the internal feedback (no input) manipulated by various cv’s to create amazing low fi beats and drones…check it out!
