[the return of the] blackdeath noise synth

   0 reviews  -  689 views

    Inspired in part by Leif Elggren's Virulent Images/Virulent Sound (if images can be virulent, can sound be virulent too?), blackdeath is the first open hardware/free software noise synthesiser with the plague inside.

    Embedding epidemic and plague simulations amongst other data generation algorithms for granular re-synthesis of incoming audio signals or self-generated feedback, blackdeath represents a virulent yet highly controllable noise/audio engine with built-in, switchable distortion.

    Alternatively you can abandon the plague carrier and code your own sampling software to make use of resident 512 Kb RAM (64 seconds of audio sampled at 8000 samples per second), 8 bit DAC (Digital Analogue Convertor), and digital switched distortion(s). A prototype area is provided to design, test and run your own distortion designs.

    blackdeath is delivered custom cased and fully assembled, and features high quality ALPS potentiometers, BOSS style 9v power socket (+9v/positive on the outside, negative centre, minimum 200mA), and full size (6.5mm) JACK input and output sockets. The sheer, black design follows John Dee's Sigillum DEI, according to the instructions of the Angels given in Mysteriorum Liber Secundus.

    This latest cased blackdeath is a strictly limited edition of 10, combining worm code (see below) with original blackdeath code. Simply switch between them.
