every year at Superbooth we from LeafAudio are organising the schedule for Superbooth DIY area. This year, we only have the home edition, so we thought we should bring a DIY event to people's homes with a live streamed workshop on 30th april. Registration is open today during Superbooth 20 Home Edition and it will be announced at Superbooth later today.
LeafAudio - Noisefoc - DIY Kit + Superbooth Home Edition Workshop
Noisefoc is an experimental Oscillator, good for noise and Pan Sonic style buzz sounds. It's nice as a pure sound source or as a base for hihat and percussion sounds, it also works as weird CV source.
Noisefoc is a great learning project, in the manual the basic parts and their functions are explained. It is based around three CMOS NAND gates as oscillators, controlled by potentiometers and a light dependent resistor (LDR). There's an optical representation of the frequencies via LEDs, two mixing circuits (different sound via diode or resistor mixing) to mix the oscillators and a power starving function which makes the device completely out of control. It has a CV input, called pitch influence - forget 1V/Oct please.
DIY level: easy, suitable for beginners. Download the building instructions and manual here.
