Noisefoc Experimental Oscillator DIY Class


Noisefoc is controlled chaos! It is an experimental Oscillator, good for noise and Pan Sonic style buzz sounds. Furthermore it is a great base for Hi-Hat and bellish percussion sounds. Noisefoc is a great learning project, in the manual the basic parts and their functions are explained. It is based around three CMOS NAND gates as oscillators, controlled by potentiometers and a light dependent resistor (LDR). There's an optical representation of the frequencies via LEDs, two mixing circuits (different sound via diode or resistor mixing) to mix the oscillators and a power starving function which makes the device completely out of control. It features a CV input for pitch influence via optocoupler. In general, it offers many opportunities to understand the technology behind it, as well as possibilities of hardware hacking. It is a good beginner project and can be finished within 2-3 hours.
