Ciat-Lonbarde Cocoquantus 2

   (0 reviews)

The CocoQuantus is a device by Ciat-Lonbarde composed of two Coco modules (8 bit digital delays) and a central "Quantussy" analog brain (nabra).

The Quantussy is a five (5) petaled flower, each petal with oscirator, that creates a rhythm, that triggers quantizations of the movements of the other four oscirators. The Quantussy is thus both based on five (5), but four(4)... and its name also refers to Quantum Physics through its unique "double quantizing" of angular momentum.

Running at low frequencies, the Quantussy is intended to provide ample modulations for the various functions of the COCOs, through inputs "FLIP", "SKIP", and "SP.AF", or "Speed Affect". The Quantussy petals can also run at audio frequencies, as well as "Balcium" frequencies, depending on a toggle switch.

The center of the Quantussy merits some attention. There is a central indicator-lozenge of 15 Light Emitting Diodes, showing the "Spesal State" of the device. The Spesal State is controlled by touching the "Cercel Nodes", thus preserving Ciat-Lonbarde's motto of "touch-sensitive is best!".

To preserve this precious jewel of silicon encased in finest woods, use patch cords to wire it up in its own self-reconfiguring spasms.

These vibrations, spasms, activities, all manifest in unique transpositions and flip-skips in your material, which is input via Mike, Synthin, or special High Impedance Piezoin. The COCO modules here have a generalized version of the DOLBY cargo-cult preamp, which includes a self-expander, and an other-puncher for maximum POP SENSATION MUSIC>

You see, on each COCO, there is a knob for INPUT as well as FEEDBA... These are the primary functions of the COCO, to take in sound and recirculate it through *8BIT* digital memory. These two functions INPUT and FEEDBA, depending on a toggle switch, can punch the others out to create monophonic articulations of time-layers in your material.

Ultimately this is about your material. Singing is quite appropriate to the custom preamps, as well as dry, woody, or reedy piezo sounds. The Synthin is optimized for Sidrazzi input, and compensated to allow the ultrasound frequencies to go straight into the heart of the delay, there creating difference tones and thus revealing the heterodyne bat-ghosts lurking there. The COCOQUANTUS is a TUBE through which YOU SQUEEZE your JELLY_ASS, meaning the sonic material you give it.
