Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas

Post by richardisabelle » Thu Jan 19, 2017 2:34 pm

I love Noise Engineering, but anyone else less than enthused by the video they just posted?

seems pretty cool to me, although it is hard to tell just how much depth the module has from just that short facebook video. The different parameters did seem to have somewhat similar effects on the sound compared to say, the iteritas or a mangrove. However it's also a sound that's very rare to come out of a single core oscillator.

Cursus Iteritas sounds pretty cool to me! :hyper:

I got to hear a prototype earlier this year, sounded great!

Yawn, not another orthogonal oscillator...


Sounds badass!

Looks cool, but need more demos. It sounds quite a bit like Loquelic Iteritas, but no doubt has different CV-able parameters. Often it's the dynamic modulations of parameters that can really show off the sounds. Just knob twiddling gives a limited feel.

Yes, hard to figure out the differences between Loquelic and Cursus, but I have no doubt Cursus is a beast and unique. Have Loquelic, Sinc, and Basilimus--all genius-level modules. Anything new from Noise Engineering is interesting.

What's an orthogonal oscillator?

One fundamental, practical distinction: the CI is a single oscillator with a single pitch input, while the LI is two oscillators (sort of) with two separate pitches.

mmmm I like these sounds ! I was lurking on a LI but I will wait to learn more about this module !

I was about to buy a 2nd LI when I saw this one, so I held off, but not hearing anything my LI can't do, and it costs more, so went ahead and picked up another LI. I'd love to hear some future demos that change my mind, but for now..

That's true, but one upshot is that it will be much easier to keep this thing in tune while hopefully hitting similar spots as on the LI.

Yes: my inner Latin teacher wants to hear the word "Iteritas" accented on the second syllable. :roll:

Great oscillator, it quickly is becoming my favorite. Really love how easy it is to dial in harmonic overtones. With the wavefolder you can also get into similar territory of the Loquelic, but I think Cursus really excels at making nice "round" timbres. Maybe a bit easier to control too, but it's definitely a different oscillator than the Loquelic. With a pinch of audio rate modulation it can produce some nice vibrant textures.

Here I have Cursus as the primary oscillator. I forget all the intermodulations going on but essentially the brighter sparse tone is Cursus modulated by Sinc Iter then fed into an Optomix swelled by Maths. The throbbing tone is also from the same Cursus output, which is multed out to a 4ms DLD,then sent to a R*S Serge VCFS, and finally sent to the Frap Tools CGM mixer whose VCA is modulated by a triangle from new Pam's:

>IG< • >MG< • >BC<

Its going to take the last 10hp in my 360 case .I believe it will be a very good complex oscillator addition to my set up. :miley:

Wonder how good is it for ambient/droney stuff?

Picked one up, even though the demo's didn't exactly floor me, and I like it. It's no Loqueric Iteritas, but it has a home in my rack for sure.

I liked some of the sounds I was hearing as this demo progressed - seemed to come alive with some modulation applied

Here are a few with the Cursus
