Great module, very diverse noises!
Thanks for the soundclips!

Anyone know what the trimmer on the back of Dunst is for?

I was curious of that myself, especially noticing how quiet the noise output is.

So I adjusted the trimmer while listening to the different outputs, and it just affects the maximum density of one of the BNOICE outputs, so I just turned it up to max to give the widest range. Other outputs not affected, and nothing to do with output levels (I use a Befaco InAmp to boost outputs when needed).

I just picked up a used Dunst and while checking it out also noticed the very low amplitude of the noise output (lower right). I'll be putting it on the scope today and might write up something about what I find.

So far it looks like the top section is the more useful, with the variable ramp being useable as an envelope, and the pulse output works great as a random trigger.

I’m relieved to hear to see other folks are having the same low-output experience as me. I also bought one used and was trying to figure getting the most from the BNOICE outputs. Looked real weird on my cheap ’scope; no insights gained.
I guess I’ll have to try feeding it more input voltages and see how the organism reacts.

From the short time I played with it on a scope, it appeared to be white noise that was DC offset, but then clamped/limited to 0v to 5v, so if you offset negatively, only the little bits at the top of the noise come through, but as a result it's quieter.

The loudest it got was offsetting everything up, so the whole noise signal wasn't clamped, but that was still more or less limited to half volume.

Can someone help me find the trimmer on the back of Dunst? I just looked today and din't find it. :(

Some don't have a trimmer. Mine doesn't.

Oh dang! The output is definitely low for me as well- but I’ll just have to make it work with what I’ve got!

best way to deal with the noise is to get a line amp or a VCA with boost like the intellijel quad VCA. You could also get aggressive with the FSS Gristleizer modules. The preamp offers 40db of gain plus a boost switch and "bite" control, in addition to some EQ and other stuff.

Finally got around to "calibrating" mine (basically doing what @reppiks did). It's a shame the Hiss output is so quiet though.

I wonder if you got anywhere meaningful with scoping it out?

This may be a naive question, but has anyone looked at the circuit/schematic with an eye on having louder output?

Is there any kind of mod that can be done to raise the "crackle" output for a Dunst that doesn't have the trimmer? Mine is practically silent.

That's a big "ditto" here as well...

The trimmer doesn't effect the output level of that, but a +1 here as well for a mod to raise the output level.

Yes. and as long as we don't have this two Doepfer A-183-3 would do the Job. Lot of rack space, I would perfer a smaller with two amplifiers...

I'm wondering if there's some intention for the design. Do you people find some effective use of current state?

both sides of dunst ping an mmf-1 and crossmodulate themselves.

Here's an audio demo:

Just wanna say that many times I've listened to this demo whenever I think about potentially getting a Dunst. Even though it is very simple It is still the most illustrative demo around. So thanks! Not all heroes wear capes! (I'm assuming you dont use capes.)
