X1L3 - circuit bent casio SA-46 - power electronics and harsh noise

Published on Dec 28, 2018 X1L3

"20 minute PE set to check out the noise potential. Probably a bit long and drawn out in terms of demo material, but if you're into this stuff you're probably used to full C60 outings etc. Transition from navicon torture technologies type drone to an escallation into noise at 7.10. If you hate this sort of stuff i probably already know this and the sun will still rise in the morning :)

Where to get and what's in there below:

Drone is constantly triggered via midi as i don't have three hands. The rest is just hands on manipulation and experimentation to see how it behaves in the context of drone and power electronics performance. Filter as a very hot resonance peak when the res is cranked which can be used to cut into the delay loop, even when the loop feedback is maxed out and trying to inject additional audio into it becomes tricky.

Fitted with a monophonic midi interface. The board is polyphonic but the amount of routing and circuitry required to implement this via midi isn't doable in the space available. The compromise is still cool though, giving a mix of automation that can be played over, plus being a bent machine it can pull off all sorts of strange stuff when you spend a bit of time getting to know it. The standard format on the spectrum of nice to nasty - melodic to harsh noise all loaded up in this one.

It has a resonant filter, 'ruiner' ringmod/distortion and a digital delay configured as a circuit bent delay pedal might be - that is untethered feedback and filtering for texture and noise generation and manipulation. Also added is a global pitch control with fine and coarse dials."
