RF Nomad Demo [Episode 182]

Published on Sep 17, 2019 CatSynth TV

"We explore the RF Nomad module from Evaton Technologies. The RF Nomad generates sound from shortwave radio input. There is no filtering or locking on the incoming shortwave radio signal, so there is a lot of noise, heterodynes and other elements along with the occasional actual station. The real fun comes when you use the CV in to modulate the tuning, even at audio rate.

0:15 Basic Operation
1:37 Modulating the CV input for tuning from an E350 Morphing Terrarium oscillator
2:22 Running the output of the modulated EF Nomad through the Strymon Magneto tape delay for noise eerie effects

"The RF Nomad adds the squealy, squelchy, noisy, unpredictable vintage sounds of shortwave radio to your modular. But this is no ordinary shortwave; it's been designed to be extra noisy, extra squealy, extra gritty, and just downright nasty. No built-in output filtering means that a rich spectrum of harmonic content is available on the audio output jack. Audio levels can be driven to distortion. CV control lets you add your own creative spin on sound design."
