If you’re newer to modular, you may be wondering just how all those knobs handle that CV (control voltage) input. Heck, I’ve talked to some experienced users who haven’t wrapped their brains around the terminology and how this all works.Read More
One of the absolutely most common questions I get from users centers on ways to modulate Basimilus Iteritas Alter. After a few great videos came out recently, people have really started to recognize the worlds that modulation can open up with this module. It’s not an exaggeration to say that a skilled user can get the effect of a whole drum kit out of a single module...and so much more.Read More
This week, Noise Engineering is happy to present a tip from Patrick O’Brien, known in the modular world as POB or OBrienMedia. Patrick has become one of the most well-loved LA-based modular (and occasional trumpet) performers, weaving beautiful melodies and complicated patches together into some of our favorite compositions. It was a no-brainer to ask him to contribute, and we were thrilled when he agreed.Read More
This week, Noise Engineering is happy to present a tip from Anthony Baldino. Anthony is a talented and prolific composer and sound designer; he is also a modular user extraordinaire. We asked Anthony to compose a short piece and break it down for us, sort of a la the Podcast Song Exploder. Here, he speaks in his own words about the haunting patch he created, patching in general, and how he uses NE modules.Read More
In the previous post, I estimated the required precision for a 1v/8va pitch voltage using Psychoacoustics. While the precision of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) used in tuning is important, speed is of conversion (and thus the maximal sample rate) is equally so. In this post, I’ll talk about the requirements and tradeoffs between these two variables and ways around them.Read More
Noise Engineering is pleased to announce that we have partnered with SynthPatcher to make three new shirt designs available so you can profess your love for all things NE to the world...or at the very least, make everyone else wonder WTF Iteritas is too. Herewith:
We don't sell these directly, but shirts are available in all colors and sizes over at Synthpatcher.com. Check in with them and the kind folks there will get you set up. Check out their awesome shirts for all sorts of manufacturers while you're there!
This week, Noise Engineering is happy to present a tip from Matt Lange, composer, sound designer, music producer, and sometimes DJ. We love Matt's work and the way he uses modular. What follows is a lightly edited transcript of my chat with Matt about how he found modular, how he uses it, and what’s going on in the patch he created for us.Read More
