Ciat-Lonbarde Plumbutter 2 Drum and Drama Machine

   0 reviews  -  1835 views
    This is a new plumbutter, which we will herein call "plumbutter2". It is very much similar to the old plumbutter, but in a new slim case. The sigils are engraved rather than printed. Still features the signature mulberry, walnut and sassafras woodage. Aux inputs and outputs remain. Besides housekeeping mods to clean the sound, there are two special new mods:

    + The stereo mixer section now has CV inputs. They act to in a stereo manner: a signal going up on "verso" makes the right side louder and the left side quieter, and the opposite for "inverso".

    + Avdogs are now stereo: each one undulates in the left channel and the right channel, back and forth.

    + The snare drum is now much louder

    Drum and Drama simply means any kind of rhythmic pulsing plus more gestural, soft, or emotional sounds. Thus the instrument is designed for a long performance, cinematic events, to be a major player like the great modular synthesizers of the 20th century which it gets its inspiration from: Arp, Buchla, Serge, and countless nameless inventions that used banana plugs.

    The main audio producing modules are five (5), as follows:

    1. Deerhorn, a radio instrument not unlike the theremin but much advanced, with inputs and outputs to interface with the rest of this machine.

    2. Gongue, which takes a pulse input and responds rhythmically (at its own pace), by ringing an electronic resonance.

    3. Ultrasound, which takes any sort of signal, and attempts a Nyquist resampling to bring out any unheard ultrasounds.

    4. AVDog, which takes a pulse and undulates at human brain waves, thus creating a meta-resonance, which is manifested as the envelope of a synthesized electronic tone.

    5. Snare Drum
