Re: Show us yr DIY!

What was once this... cool-keys-kids-electronic-musical_1_e944f9cc8e081c8b0ff041af0ddbb80d.jpeg ...became this: 1.jpg This is a little 8-bit-sounding keyboard toy modded with a 1/4" jack and a pitch knob. The bizarre wire coming out of it acts as a kind of stylus, used for playing the 'keys' on the ...

Re: Show us yr DIY!

ddd.jpg Adorably anachronistic beeper/brick phone toy circuit bent with two contacts that serve as a pitch bend. Much more butch than the switchbox. The yellow zip ties at the melty top hold a salvaged switch to toggle between speaker and jack outputs, as a switched 1/4" jack was too big to impleme...

Re: Show us yr DIY!

a.jpg This is a switchbox that essentially switches channels e.g. input A goes to output B and input B goes to output A when activated. Same principle applies for ins/outs C/D. b.jpg Continuing to improve upon my craft. Lot's of things I would do differently here should I do it again some time, chi...

Re: Tips on starting tape label

Expect to lose money, be happy if you don't. This. I'm going to try and condense most of my thoughts here into a rule of thumb: what equipment is best for you, aside from cost, is entirely dictated by how you present your label and how you want your releases to sound. Personally I like having a dua...

Re: Minnie – Demos

I liked Distant Faith and Vasterled. Reminded me of one of my earliest introductions to noise. I can't be of much help on the technical side of things, I'm afraid. How do you record normally? Explaining that would give us an idea of where to start.

Re: Interview - She Destroys Hope

Likewise, I enjoyed it. Haven't heard anything of SDH since "Rejection and Isolation" I may need to check out the 2018 album.

Re: Noiseguide noise tape trade

Although I ultimately never participated in the trade, it did give me the push I needed to get Sensitive to Textures done. So a long overdue thanks is in order, to xdugef but also to everyone else who posted. These kind of projects are what keeps me doing noise.

Re: BEHRINGER

I think it passes a dry signal? I haven't used it in a while, if I get a free moment I'll do a formal experiment.

Re: BEHRINGER

That could very well be the reason too. all I know is anytime I try to put it in an fx Loop, it shuts off after increasing FX control or volume too much, so I'm inclined to believe Joe's Theory more.

My biggest complaint on behringer circuits is that if the signal is too hot, they won't turn on.

Re: BEHRINGER

no one answered my question. i was asking if there was any other behringer pedals worth buying. I personally prefer the Behringer DD400 over the Boss DD-3, granted the former isn't exactly a clone of the latter per se. I like how the pitch stays the same when adjusting delay time, compared to the D...

Re: Blending Sludge and Noise

possible inspiration to be had:

https://phyllomedusa.bandcamp.com/album ... rrem-gthoe

takes about ten minutes to get to the intense noisludge, but when it does oh man...

that or look up boris/merzbow/sunn o))) collab stuff. personally i'm not one for sludge so my palette is limited.

Stimulator
Had to ask, didn't look like a custom decal but you never know.

I'm with joe: I can only guess at what those things are, let alone what they sound like.
