Re: Flangers, phasers, choruses for noise?

There is no such thing as "useless" in noise. I mean, it's all equally useless. And noise in general is a complete waste of money. I'm pretty certain at this point that it is, at least culturally speaking, nothing more than a diversion for bitter incels, pretentious art students, burned-out indie ro...

Re: Keyboard synthesizers for noise

I could be wrong, but I don't think you can build timbres from scratch on the Yamaha PSR-E363, so it's not a "synthesizer" per se. I believe it's a ROMpler, perhaps with very limited patch-editing capabilities under the hood. I have a Yamaha PSR-275, which I guess is a lower-end model. It has good e...

Re: Need help with reverse engineering 2 sounds

As Joe mentioned, the first one is very clearly some kind of percussed metal object. I suggest you invest in a large metal dumpster. If you've ever slid the side doors on one of those, or slammed the top hatch of one, you will understand. This was obviously just a midday-drunk shitpost, but I am rea...

Re: Show us yr DIY!

I know you aren't supposed to compare yourself against other people, but Croch's solder wizardy and engineering prowess makes me feel worthless every time. I have two of those Cool Keys things myself, FAP. I've decided that I want to rackmount them and supply them with MIDI input and pitch/voltage s...

Re: Your Setups

I remember you did some ringmod experiments years ago, like plugging the same sound source into each input, that were really interesting. Is this set up for the laugh or for FGFY? In just the last 3 months, I cleaned house on my external hard drive. I think I deleted a bunch of old setup pics, thin...

Re: Tips on starting tape label

I hope my post didn't sound dismissive. I just don't want someone getting ahead of themselves when talking about starting a noise (strike 1!) tape (strike 2!) label (strike 3, yer out!). But I will still say that a single, well-maintained deck is about as utilitarian as it gets, especially for occas...

Re: Your Setups

Mhm, mhm. I still break it out from time to time. The second passive ring modulator I used is out of view, but it's the other one you sent me in the black box. I have that one mounted to the wall behind the patch bay, and patched into the back for easy access. Due to cable shortages, the triangle RM...

Re: Your Setups

https://i.imgur.com/Itp0BIW.png This was the result of several recording sessions, starting this morning and ending late this afternoon. I added/rearranged things throughout the day, so it ended up being a huge mess, as usual. It looked relatively tidy when I started out this morning. Essentially, ...

Re: Tips on starting tape label

Join a forum like tapeheads.net. Search for topics related to questions you have. From there, figure out what it is you want from a tape deck, and how to service your own equipment, inside and out. That's the most important thing to do if you want to get into home taping long-term. You only need a s...

Re: On-the-fly Tuner Pedal?

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I've had a tuner-related question for a while now: Does anyone make a tuner that can record custom, even out-of-tune tunings? Suppose you randomly tuned to something that you want to remember for later. With this theoretical device, you could play each string to reco...

Re: Noise with pedals + mixer ?

Ditto. I think the only major risk is blowing out your monitor speakers, headphones (and eardrums by extension), etc. I think the stuff about frying modern "VLZ-style" and Eurorack mixers is just misinformation that can largely be attributed to stories about people blowing out their PA/monitor syste...

Definitely some of the most far-out packaging I've seen. Very impressive. Haven't even tried opening it yet.

Re: Noise with pedals + mixer ?

Google "no input" + "mixer". See where that gets you.
I bet throwing it all in a trash compactor would be plenty noisy, too. :)
