Facehugger Glide function


video upload by flightofharmony

"Demonstration of the Glide, or Portamento, function. This feature is still incomplete: the linear portamento needs more capacitance than the logarithmic portamento for matching performance, and I haven't had a chance to implement that on the breadboard yet.

New flight of harmony Facehugger Eurorack Module on Kickstarter



via Kickstarter

"Introducing the Facehugger:

An all-analog, addressable, non-linear, 8-stage, chainable, function generator and control module for eurorack modular synthesizer systems.

What the hell does that mean?

It outputs up to eight different control voltage levels (levels set by the LED sliders) in a sequence determined by a control signal. Depending on how you use it, it can be a:

Control Voltage (CV) Sequencer
Gate Sequencer
Arpeggio Generator
Envelope Generator
Burst Generator
Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO)
Some very basic uses:

Connect it to the CV input of an oscillator to change the pitch
Connect it to the CV input of a voltage-controlled amplifier (VCA) to change the amplitude of a signal.

The Facehugger is unclocked, using an internal ramp generator to control the cycling, or you can use any external 0-+5V waveform instead. The Sequence order is determined by amplitude and slope of the driving waveform: if it is linear, the stages will trigger linearly (in order), incrementing with a rising signal, and decrementing with a falling signal. With a non-linear drive signal (like a stepped, or staircase wave), the stages will trigger non-linearly based on the same parameters.

Multiple units can be chained together for longer patterns or for synchronizing to generate chords via a rear chaining header.

The rear Ramp out pin can be used as a synch oscillator, or even - when using an external drive waveform - as a separate, fully-controllable LFO with adjustable curvature.

The Facehugger also has a rear expansion header for a separate expander module that provides individual level out jacks, individual gate out jacks, a master Gate in jack, and a ramp out jack (see Expander Milestone below for details)."

New flight of harmony Parasite Antifilter & Famine Eurorack Modules


video upload by flightofharmony

Overview video followed by demos. The following is the description for the overview:

"A slow walkthrough of Parasite dynamics, showing off the quirks and extreme variability.

Very simple patching (sometimes none), and just showing the more unstable end of usage: Out 2, high Feedback, etc.

It is interesting to note that the Parasite Antifilter acts like a capacitor sometimes and stores energy. Many of the sounds it generates have a charging period before they show and then run on their own like an additional source. They'll keep running until the settings are changed, and have to re-charge before they appear again.

I was going to edit this, but we left it complete to show everything, even the dead zones.

Sources: Desktop Infernal Noise Machine for tone and LFO, IMP for other.

Notable points:

04:10
04:30
06:48
9:44
10:50
12:25
13:09 - Shows the development of various tones and rhythms over the next minute or so.
15:54 through17:15 - long-cycle rhythmic evolution & sporadic distortion."



What is the Parasite Antifilter?
Well, it started out as a VC parametric equalizer, but it sucked. Really bad. I decided to trash the idea and sent the original prototype to the Great Wizard for them to play with since we had been chatting about it. The subsequent findings were completely the opposite of what I found – not about the filter part though, that still sucked. It turns out the Parasite Antifilter is a ridiculously fun and useful drone source, drum generator (especially kicks, snares, and blocks), distortion and fuzz, absolute sonic wreckage device, coloring mixer, formant generator, and so on. We keep finding more uses for it each time it’s fired up.

Ostensibly, the Parasite Antifilter is a 2nd-order cascaded parametric equalizer. Out1 is from the first stage, Out2 is from the second stage. Both can be used simultaneously for a stereo-esque signal. The Feedback knob controls amount of output fed back to the input, and the Feedback toggle chooses if it’s from Out1 or Out2.

The 'Infest' switches are wholly serendipitous and defy explanation. Just know that they are there for good reason, which is readily apparent when you use them. Infest 1 affects the first stage, Infest 2 the second.



"Welcome to Flight's Famine Fun - IMP Edition!

Having used Famine to turn two sound effect modules into sound sources, it was time to see what new possibilities could be found by using Famine on a source module - the INM IMP.

This video is goes into more detail and exploration to show how much is hidden away inside a module that just takes a little torture and suffering to bring out. Come watch!

As with the others, this is the raw audio, with no processing."



What is Famine?
Famine is a voltage-controlled power starvation module, a teasing taste of electronic death – with the ever-present threat of the real thing. Your system will squeal, stutter, fuzz, and shriek, in new ways as you torture it while discovering the sublime joys of Schadenfreude.

Famine is capable of handling 1.5A, enough for an entire busboard of modules.

All/Split:
• In the All position, positive and negative rails track together using the All/+V knob and CV input and the -V knob and CV input are ignored.
• In the Split position, positive and negative are separated and controlled from their respective knob and CV input.

Crush/Wrack:
• In the Crush position, positive and negative mirror each other, i.e., +5V & -5V, +6V & -6V.
• In the Wrack position, positive and negative track inversely, i.e., 0v & -10V, +1V & -9V, +8V & -2V, etc.

Starve/Feed:
Starve position to starve, Feed position to bypass circuit entirely.

L.E.D.s
The LEDs indicate the level of starvation and glow brightest at 0V output.

Notes:

• Most effective on analog systems. Since digital is based on the principle of either on or off, there’s not much to play with there. Systems with bootup periods are particularly annoying.
• NO RELAYS, GAUGES, MOTORS, FANS, OR OTHER INDUCTIVE SYSTEMS (see below).

Disclaimer:
Famine may destroy your system. Although commonly used, voltage starvation is a largely unstudied technique and the dangers it poses are not well known or understood, but are rumored to range from general malfunction to actual fire and catastrophic failure. Any use of this module is entirely at your own risk.

NOT RECOMMENDED with inductive or electromechanical systems. Inductive kickback has been known to be a danger to circuitry in AC power distribution systems. The currents in Eurorack are highly unlikely to cause damage, but it is a non-zero possibility.

Details, samples, updates, and discussion can be found in the Famine thread on ModWiggler.com.

3am - Cascadence


video upload by justin3am

"A stomping jam featuring eurorack modular and such.
At the center of this patch is the Cascade Register from Omiindustriies, providing the main clock as well as distributing CV and triggering events.
Sounds from Synth Fox Modular's Degenrator, Pulsar-23, Infernal Noise Machine, etc.

I kinda dig this blurry arms vibe."

Dirty Sounds with Gotharman's Tiny LD + Infernal Noise Machine Eurorack Synth #TTNM


video upload by THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"Gosh, I'm pretty tired from this week, but I still wanted to record ... something ... with my Gotharman TinyLD granular workstation synth and Flight of Harmony's Infernal Noise Machine INM-E Eurorack noise synth ... so here is ... something :D Have a nice weekend!

INM-E audio goes into the TinyLD, where it's processed by granular sound FX and side-chain compression. The TinyLD then plays some synthesized drums, a bass line and two metallic bleeps and bloop voices. There are also two additional INM-E noodle recordings with some FoH Sound of Shadows delay going on, where I just explore around the domains more or less audibly.

I love to hear from you and talk about synths and stuff, so always feel welcome to post a comment or send me an e-mail to:

Analog Audio Tube Mayhem // SpazeDrum + Infernal Noise Machine + Trogotronic 679 #TTNM


video upload by THE TUESDAY NIGHT MACHINES

"Just a little LOUD AND DISTORTED Trogotronic Infernal Noise Machine SpazeDrum Sound of Shadows SOUND DESTRUCTION! WAAAGH!!! Well ... so ... I wanted to use the Flight of Harmony INM-E to process the analog Gotharman SpazeDrum output. But then I thought: "Why not step it up a notch?". So I added the Trogotronic 679 vacuum tube ... THING ... and sent the result through Flight of Harmony's Sound of Shadows delay too.

Flight of Harmony QUAD PLAGUEBEARER SN 15/20

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"Not one PlagueBearer, but 4 in a case. This is unit 15 of only 20 made. Version 1.1

As such it has CV for High and Low knobs but not GAIN.

The coolest part of this is that you can feedback from one section to another for some great head ripping effects.


The Plague Bearer is called a filter, but that is just a description of the circuit topology, what it can actually do goes way beyond that. It has been described as a filter, a waveshaper, a mangler, a crusher, and – my favorite – as an “FSU module”.

Calling it a filter may be a bit misleading, but I have no idea what else to call it. It is a filter, but it does more (all at the same time, really) excessive phase shifting, waveforming, ringing, formant generation, and so on. I guess it could be called a waveform modifier or enhancer, but those don’t sound good either. It was named the Plague Bearer for a reason.

All f(h) devices are designed in accordance with how they sound, not to achieve mathematical perfection.

FofH avoided the conventional design approach while designing this circuit, so it’s very problematic to try to describe this filter in the normal terms. The slope is directly tied to the gain of the circuit, making it variable, and the Q is affected by all three filter controls. The setup is actually a combined High- and Low-pass. The corner frequencies are adjusted by the controls and can be overlapped completely, which gives a comb-filtering effect.

Runs on two 9vdc batteries or from included power supply.

Manual is for V2.3 single unit but is applicable to operation."

Rocky Flowing by Infradead (Infernal Noise Machine demonstration)


flightofharmony

"Infradead of the Tacoma Noise Rodeo submitted another great INM-E demo track.
'INM is processing the drums. One channels filter is being audio modulated by drums the other by the osc.'

The Infernal Noise Machine Kickstarter campaign is almost over! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

Remember: this was just a tryout of the Kickstarter platform. Development of the INM-E has been in progress the whole time and is now finalized, so these are being built whether or not the campaign succeeds. All pledges will be converted to preorders if the goal is not reached, so this is your chance to get one of the 22 remaining Limited Edition units!"

flightofharmony INM E Simple Self-Patch Demos #2 & #3


flightofharmony

"Another four-cable self-patch example of the eurorack Infernal Noise Machine. This one starts in a higher range like static or white noise. The second half shows how the INM is made of "sweet spots", where small control changes greatly alter the sound. The INM-E is on my workbench in a circuit board holder.

This video was recorded while I was still trying to figure out the best recording settings in OBS and the motion is a bit choppy, but the sound is in sync and accurate.

Come check out the INM-E Kickstarter campaign! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

(Module shown is a prototype.)"


Infernal Noise Machine Simple Self-Patch Demo #3


flightofharmony

"A two-cable self-patch example of the eurorack Infernal Noise Machine. This patch creates a pseudo-delay/reverb effect that is very apparent on headphones. Two more cables are added later for AR envelope
