Here's a video I did as influenced by this thread.
I think it shows how good jupiter storm is for control, and how impulse drive is with modulation.
I realized after uploading it that the sound wasn't even from the grid outs of impulse drive, rather, it was just from the monitor out.
The grids of impulse drive were just influencing the modulation of jupiter storm in a dense feedback loop.

I am in the process of making a smaller (44hp) noise box myself...



some other recommended modules-
Doepfer A-124 Wasp, Incredible filter for noise/weird/screeching sounds. I love this thing! You can find them for cheap on the bst forum.
Dwarfcraft HAX/TGD- There have been some suuper cheap ones on the bst forum as well... Super insane.
Doepfer A-118, basic noise/random.
Doepfer A-151, Not a noise module by any means, but a great switch utility. Dirty cheap as well.

i got sidetracked by Max/Msp(woe is me...)
that being said,i have noticed that an analog rush is very often
good for what ails you...
@the moment what i have in front(sort of)of me is:
trog 679,noise swash cv tweaker,pittsburgh system 2,masf osc03,
digitech(i know)death metal and grunge,and an eventide pitch factor.
i was going to get ableton live9 suite as it's on sale,and i would like
have Max inside a daw,but who knows...
thanks for asking(seriously)

I love the noise swash. Jupiter storm is pretty useful. For my brand of noise I find any sort of heavy audio rate fm to be most of what I'm looking for. Pittsburg filter self oscillating and modulated by a waveforms is my current favorite. Also something to take external signals and generate envelopes and gates is essential, I use a diy E.A.S. E.S.P., which also does pitch to cv. Very useful to make rhythmic laser sounds or whatever. Make sure you have lots of envelopes, and mixers. Cycling envelopes that double as lfos like maths, or peg, are especially nice.

Just put this together for entertainment while I travel
So far it's been really awesome.

I can not recommend a matrix mixer enough for noise. Just brilliant.
And the Razmasynth Unknown Pleasures is pretty awesome too, based off the Crackle Box I believe. And cheap as chips for the DIY kit (although it is an odd build, basically surface mount with through hole components)

Lots of great noise options in Eurolund

that is one seriously sweet looking case.
if you don't mind humoring a n00b,is the harvestman the aforementioned
matrix mixer?
as a longtime joy division fan,i would get the UP just for the name...
(i believe that's the module on the right?)
the dark interpreter's on my wish list as well(not a module,but Martin's
stuff is great)
happy new year all.

Yup, I got the harvestman one because it normalises to the Stilton adapter for easy feedback. But a better priced one is made by Doepfer, and u think someone else makes one as well. The switch for bipolar knobs is super handy.

The unknown pleasures is the one on the right, yeah. And I would love the dark interpreter, thing looks awesome.

hah. whatever can get you some noisy shit.
I have those same two pedals (maybe one's a DOD), and for a while, they were my only pedals.

I recently got 4ms PEG and Steady State Fate Propagate; both at audio rate produce some crazy sounds.
I also got Hexinverter vcNOIZ, which is nice since it's like an independent channel of jupiter storm.

Anyone else like the Doepfer a-188-1 BBD delay (4096 stages) for noise?
This is the first delay module I've got with external feedback processing, which I love.

Aside from eurorack, I've been loving my trogotronic m77 pedal.

I also put my vote in for the 4ms Noise Swash and Atoner. The Noise Swash is one of my favorite modules, I just added the Atoner yesterday and have had fun with it during my limited patching session yesterday.

i've had my eye on the m77 for awhile now,but it seems they're out
of stock.
the dual vca looks pretty cool...

I just got the Trogotronic m177- the single vca.
Sounds quite nice, but does sort of band pass the audio. It's good for super saturating something softer, but it mellows out highly harmonic sound. But it sounds great in a feedback path, that's for sure. Really has it's own character in that context.

But the m277 has some clever stereo workings which look very fun, I think it would work quite nicely

Check out Harvestman modules. A lot of it seems geared towards noise.

definitely recommend the benjolin, can create beastly sounds (or not) and go wonderfully arrhythmic if that's something you'd also like to incorporate

:agree:

It pairs really well with an Erbe-Verb or other reverb...

neverthless,the heads -up is still much appreciated.
You can also use the eurorack version as standalone. It has a 9v power input on the board.

A138d crossfader / effect insert module, so you can hook up a chain of 3
DOD Death Metals.

Well, okay. Maybe not three.

The A119 Ext. Input/Envelope is also great for triggering stuff in cut up harsh noise.

+1 for Trogotronic. My m666 and m679 output nothing but sonic mayhem. Agreed, they do shine with CV input. The Trogo manuals are pretty cryptic. I wish WT would rewrite them to be a little less so. I keep meaning to run these modules though an oscilloscope and tweak them while watching how the waveform changes.
