IT IS ALL NOISE
Dual Noise Shifter orders CHAOS and NOISE OR IT PRODUCES CHAOS AND NOISE! SHIFTY!
Dual Noise Shifter records the current input value for every received triggered into an ordered sequence of chaos! With every trigger the current step is also output which turns Dual Noise Shifter into a Chaos Streamer! When not recording, Dual Noise Shifter loops over the current buffer of recorded values.
Use Dual Noise Shifter to capture chaotic signals and noise and turn them into intricate sequences! Order your chaos!
The IN input is used to feed signals into the shifter to record. When the REC button is activated the signal at this input is sampled for every received trigger at the TRIG input and put into the Shifter to stream and cycle through. Pro-Tip: when the IN input is not connected a NOISE source is automatically internally routed to the Shifter for recording!
The TRIG input shifts the Dual Noise Shifter by one step for each received trigger signal. The TRIG is capable of converting just about any signal into a trigger as long as it exceeds the threshold of 0.1 V and returns back below the threshold. When recording is active the IN input is sampled for every received trigger as well and fed into the Shifter. For your patching and routing convenience the TRIGGERS sensed at the TRIG input are forwarded to the TRIG output at the opposite side of the module.
Reset the playhead to the first step by feeding a trigger signal into this input.
The OUT output holds the signal of the current step in the shift register. The value is held until the next trigger which results in the next Shifter value to be output and held.
Toggle this button on to start recording/sampling the signal at the IN input. The small LED at the top left of the button indicates whether recording is active. The CV input below the REC button can be used to control the recording as well. As long as the CV signal exceeds the threshold of +0.1 V the recording is active.
If you don't feel like sampling/recording and just want to get shifting quickly you can use the RAND button to generate a sequence of random values that are placed into the shifter. The CV input below the RAND button can be used to trigger the generation of new random values via CV. To trigger the RAND the CV signal must exceed the threshold of +0.1 V. For the next trigger to be registered the CV signal must have fallen below the threshold.
The STEPS knob is used to determine the length of the Shifter's buffer. The higher the STEP number the more values are held in the buffer before it wraps around and the more values can be recorded to the buffer. The current position of the Read Head is shown at the knob below the STEPS knob and can also be manipulated with this knob. The STEP knob automatically adjusts to the boundaries set by the STEPS knob.
Offset the current position of the play head with this control. Browse through the sequence to offset the start/reset position. The accompanying CV input maps a 5V range to the currently set number of steps. Of course this input also takes audio-rate signals effectively turning Dual Noise Shifter into a lo-fi oscillator.
The Visualizer shows the current content of the Shifter. The bars are bi-polar which means that values above the middle of each visualizer are positive whereas values below the middle are negative. A sequence of 8 steps is indicated by a small red indicator to make it easier to spot patterns.
