Ja, der Paul Tas von Error Instuments schafft es immer wieder neue Noise-Maschinen zu kreieren, die alle eine unterschiedliche Ästhetik haben. Dieses Mal handelt es sich um eine Cut-Up-Game-Consolen-Chip-Sound-Maschine mit Namen Invader.
Mit wenigen Knöpfen eine Menge Sounds zu machen, die insgesamt einer Idee folgen. Das kann Error Instruments gut und in diesem Falle sind es LoFi, Game, Achziger-Jahre-Chipsounds und das alles ist offenbar möglich mit Audiosignalen zu vermischen, denn in dem Video ist das zu hören, allerdings sieht man zumindest keine Eingangsbuchse. Es erinnert an die Ästhetik von alten Cabaret Voltaire Videos. Neben diesem vermutlich Nicht-Feature gibt es aber drei Knöpfe und einen CV-Eingang um diverse Geräusche zu erstellen.
Du sollst einfach an den 3 Knöpfen drehen und über die beiden weiteren Knöpfe kann man andere bzw. weitere Algorithmen wählen, die andere Sounds erzeugen. Das ist alles. Glitchcore, Kaputtbeat, Noise, Geräusche. Das alles bleept und britzelt dich dann an. Dafür ist das Gerät da. Angetrieben wird es durch eine 9V-Batterie und alles ist stilecht „mono“. Was auch sonst. Ist ja kein C65, der hatte dann 2x SID an Bord aber er war ja nicht so weit gekommen.
Mehr dazu gibt es auf der Error Instruments Page, also weitere kleine Noise-Maschinen und Module. Der Preis und das Gerät wird ab 15.5.2020 bekannt gegeben. Ab da kann man vermutlich auch vor/bestellen.
Denise has released an update to the Noize 2 audio plugin that aims to take that takes noise generation to the next level. The Noize 2 was released in March 2019 as a follow on from the original ‘Noize’ plugin. The plugin was one of the most successful plugins by Denise last year, which was […]
Accentize has announced the release of VoiceGate, an effect plugin that helps you to clean up your speech and vocal recordings in an easy, automated fashion. With the help of machine learning techniques like artificial neural networks, the algorithm can differentiate between desired signal components and unwanted noise which can be easily suppressed. VoiceGate is […]
Voxengo has released its new creative dynamic noise-floor padding effect CRTIV Shumovick, a plugin that is most effective on beats and synth sounds used in electronic music production. The noise-floor effect created by this plug-in is correlated to the spectral content of the sound being processed. As a result, on beats, this creates mellow noise […]
Some people claim electronic music is the work of the devil. Inventor Ewa Justka creates things that could actually prove it.
Ewa is a Glasgow, Scotland UK-based, Polish-born sound artist, musician, and inventor. She can bang her way through a raw techno set, she can blind you wish flashing lights driven by homemade circuits, or she can open a gateway to evil realms in unbridled noise – all of this at festivals like CTM, Unsound, Insomnia, and Sonic Acts. But she also builds fantastic instruments of her own – and you can buy them for your own abuse, or if you’re lucky, catch her at a workshop and make it for yourself.
There’s the Ladder to Hell, a synthesizer. It started as a resonant ladder filter a la Moog, but devolved into something far more distorted and psychotic. There’s a WASP filter in there, too. There are SCREAM and DRIVE knobs that are … not tame. You can input CV to the Moog and Wasp filters – that’s resonance on the Wasp filter, for some real punishment.
Self-oscillate or even make some subtler distorted timbres, too.
It’s as effective as a sound processor as it is as a synth, thanks to an audio input. Check the manual and full specs.
Then there’s the WhOoPsYnTh, a combination sampler + delay + LFO with similarly masochistic sonic possibilities. It’s inspired by the Pete Edwards design for a similar architecture – and Pete, like Ewa, is also someone who builds creations, then takes them into ecstatic noisy performances.
The WhOoPsYnTh just goes all out with that idea, screaming in pain in a very Ewa Justka-ish sonic voice. But the beauty of it is, you can again use external CV – here for delay length. You can cut up sounds and stretch them with the delay. You can really warp audio inputs with this.
These are elaborate, full instruments, but Ewa can also make dark magic with more economical sets of parts. Meet the VOICE_ODDER 2, a thing that takes inputs and makes them … odd. And makes your neighbors hate … you.
Using light-sensitive wave oscillators and a delay, it’s palm-sized mayhem.
You’ll be able to build one of these yourself at an event I’m co-hosting on February 22 in Kaliningrad, Russia, so if you’re nearby – say, Gdansk, or Lithuania, or Minsk, or somewhere like Moscow that has cheap flights – you should come learn these dark arts with us. Sign up for the Facebook event and we’ll tell you how to join the workshop and make one yourself:
