I’m working on a compact 9V DC powered circuit that generates stepped and smooth pseudo-random control voltage patterns, ring modulator + short wave radio sounds and pitched digital noise. It can be used as a flexible noisemaker on its own or as a parasitic device for bending your CV jack bearing synthesizers or pedals to its will. Target price is $150, which should be possible if I can mass produce ‘em.
Stay tuned for more details.
I’m building a few more matrix mixers then taking a break to focus on some new prototypes. Get in touch soon if you want to grab one.

I’ve started a set on my Soundcloud for Matrix Mixer patches. The first one is self-playing (no knob twiddling) and uses just a Moog Ring Modulator and Electro Harmonix Micro Synth.
More clips are coming…

Fixed up one of these today. Sounds like The Shadow Ring circa Lindus. Beware the “Frogman” setting.

I’ve started posting some of my own designs for your perusal. Heed the disclaimer within:

I’m selling my Ciat Lonbarde Rollz-5 synthesizer
I built this on paper circuit boards this past December. I’ve used it a ton as my only instrument during performances these last few months. I’ve started constructing a totally tricked out Dual Rollz-5 and can’t imagine still needing this one as well.
In this Rollz-5 we have:
A 3-Roll, 4-Roll, 5-Roll and 6-Roll - chaotic sequencing brains of the Rollz-5, but they also make some incredible Cracklebox-esque timbres when patched directing to the outputs (check the audio below)
One AVDog - modded with a switching pot that brings in a special high gain insanity mode
Two Ultrasound Filters
Two Gongs - each modded with their own decay knobs
Three assignable 1/4” outputs - send the Gongs to your sub and run the rest in stereo for maximum intensity
Also included is a foam-lined carrying case with storage room for accessories and a bunch of alligator clips for patching.
It can be played with alligator clips, flesh or anything else conductive. The Rolls especially are very touch sensitive. Beer cans are one of my favorite interfaces for playing it (see the video below). Power is supplied by a 9V battery and it is safe for finger lickin’ goodness.
$550 + shipping. $50 from the sale is going to Peter Blasser.
