Fort Processor - experimental noise synthesiser circuit by Isn'tses

Published on Feb 3, 2019 Isn'tses music

"The Fort Processor is an experimental synth and noise effects circuit created by Isn'tses as part of Fort Process sound art festival 2018.

Available now as a DIY PCB or full kit."

via Thonk

"The Fort Processor is an experimental noise synthesiser and audio effect circuit designed by harsh fun noise duo ISN’TSES (Tim Drage & Lisa McKendrick) for Fort Process sound art festival. This event takes place in the tunnels and bunkers of Newhaven Fort on the Sussex coast, and the electronics and artwork of the synth are based on the layout of the site, with inspiration from the surrounding landscape and ocean.

The synth is controlled by light, touch pads, 3 knobs, and a trimmer. Audio is created and manipulated by four sections which have been combined using a circuit-bent approach:

1. The audio input, (3.5mm) used to connect devices such as a radio, walkman, phone, tablet, mp3, instrument etc. This signal is distorted using high gain then run through a frequency divider to add two noisy sub-octaves. When no input jack is connected, the circuit feeds back and self-oscillates.

via this auction, also on Reverb.

"It all works, all sliders, jacks, keys etc and sounds amazingly wicked. BUT there are a couple of sliders that feel a slight bit looser than others and have sputtered signal when moved at some point along the throw of the fader… that said all sounds good without sputtered noise when set and left.

Also, some keys on occasion double trigger. This is a VERY common thing with roland synths of this era as had several SH5, SH3, SH7's etc… all had that issue. When we triggered this synth via external CV it played, responded and handled perfectly via another keyboard."

Maestro soviet analog synthesizer \ Маэстро

Published on May 17, 2017 Cyril Metodey

"the instrument has mods by Logich:
Midi+arpeggiator sync to midi clock.
Three direct VCO Wavefrom select switches - Saw, Sq, Pw
going through VCF constantly."

via this auction, also on Reverb

"Excellent physical condition. All keys work. The rightmost key is a bit tight. Functionally, almost everything works. For some reason, the arpeggiator in several modes plays only three notes instead of four. Obviously, the synthesizer needs to be serviced and tuned. I sell it as it is, because I can not compare with a fully serviceable device.

Once again, there are several technical issues that require expert inspection. But the synthesizer works, the modes are switched, the pitch shifter is ideal, the potentiometers work, the external state is perfect.

Keyboard electronic musical instrument (KEMI) "Maestro" is a portable polyphonic four-voiced synthesizer with microprocessor control (KR-580) & programmed timbres "presets". Number of presets- 20. There is possibility to get vibrato frequency with depth & frequency control. This instrument includes "chorus" effect with depth control, filter with cut-off frequency & resonance control. There are also "arpeggio-tremolo" arrangement with speed control and joystick that pitch shifts & vibrato depth controls.

Vocoding with Lucille Ball - Machine Made Voices! (1939)

Published on Apr 13, 2014 British Pathé

A bit more talk box than vocoder, but you get the idea.

"Titles read: "MACHINE MADE VOICES!"

Hollywood, California, United States of America.

In a Hollywood CBS recording studio we see American film star actress Lucille Ball telling us she has just travelled cross-country by train. She holds two small amplifiers against her throat and mouths some words. The amplifiers transform the sound of a steam train coming from a record into 'steam train words' picked up by Lucille's larynx. I cannot make out all of them - the last are "Hello everybody".

Three technician men sit at a table wearing headphones and making notes. Lucille does another demonstration - this one seems to be 'cow words' - very difficult to decipher. I guess it was still in the early stages!
FILM ID:1196.1



British Pathé also represents the Reuters historical collection, which includes more than 120,000 items from the news agencies Gaumont Graphic (1910-1932), Empire News Bulletin (1926-1930), British Paramount (1931-1957), and Gaumont British (1934-1959), as well as Visnews content from 1957 to the end of 1979.
