I heard a papernoise in the distance

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator with a pathologic love for synths and electronic music. Here I talk about musical hacking, DIY, circuit bending, synths and handmade, experimental electronic music.

I run a small design studio called papernoise, you can find our website at: www.papernoise.net. I also play in an experimental noise band called kvsu

if you do one thing with your day today, please make it watching this otamatone cover of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Made my day.

Especially because while listening to this cover I was having this animated GIF right above creating a totally weird but wonderful combination of things.

This week at Papernoise

  • Finished all artwork for the upcoming Mutant Clap from Hexinverter.net in time for Knobcon.
  • Almost finished a couple of overdue web projects
  • Finished to set up a new mobile skiff case and designed a handy multi tool 1U panel for it
  • Did some beta testing for something that totally blew my mind
  • Spent most of the time solving technical problems for SEN | XOR
  • Realized that the use of computers increases the chances of things not working in mysterious ways by 400%

One day ebay recommended me this voice recorder, it was on sale for two dollars & some change. I’ve since bought more for $3.50- 

I buy blank euro panels for $6- 

A vactrol cost $6- 

+ rest of parts adds up to about $20- = TWAMPLER 

Laugh all you want, lofi cheap stuff can be fun too smile 

ebay link to voice rec

It will CV pitch the sample via Vactrol 

Send it a gate & it will record for duration of gate. 

Send it a trigger & it will play back entire sample. 

Send a gate to PL pin header pin & it will play back for duration of gate.

cool thing… but I wonder what it actually is. I guess something to do with LDRs and the patterns on these disks…

If you’re going to Knobcon be sure to check out the Hexinverter.net stand, because they’ll have Ming Mecca there for you to try out… well together with the latest Mutant Drums, Orbitals sequencer, and all the other cool Hexinverter.net modules!

This week at Papernoise

Another really busy week has passed! Despite everything being really cool and exciting, I’ll be happy when this is all over! 

  • Finished some new stickers for Hexinverter.net.
  • Almost finished a bunch of web-related projects (need to do less coding and more design).
  • Painted more backgrounds, I’ve finished the main batch, now I’m doing the extra backgrounds we’ll need to spice things up a bit.
  • Did some animations for SEN | XOR, it’s cool that with this project, a lot of things I love to do get united. I only wished I had more time to dedicate to it right now.
  • Changed my setup for SEN | XOR. It’s incredible how much things can work in theory and how little they then do in practice.
  • Finally saw how my interior design for SEN | XOR has been implemented. Not bad, we’re on the right track!
  • Wrote the 3rd version of a script for a comic project.

This could be really cool and useful! unfortunately the price is rather steep at 450€. Stilll… hmm… let me see, what can I sell now to get this one?
More info here: http://www.ericasynths.lv/en/shop/3117-erica_synths_matrix_mixer.html

Inspired by EMS Synthi, Erica Synths MATRIX MIXER is unique, easy to use module with resistive touchscreen that allows you to route any (or several simultaneously) of 10 inputs to any (or several simultaneously) of 8 outputs. Input signals (audio and/or control voltage) are not only connected mechanically; they are mixed together on a buffered input mixer. Likewise, if you wish to route one input to several outputs (use the Matrix Mixer as a splitter), outputs will be buffered also. 250 patches can be saved in the internal memory and recalled instantly. The module has unique Performance mode, when you can chain multiple patches in a long performance so that patches change automatically, clocked by external or internal clock. Matrix Mixer saves 128 infinitely long Performances.
