Author [new module] Jupiter Storm: Cosmic Noise Oscillator
hexinverter
Well, I am dropping in here today (many may know me from the DIY forum) to introduce another module that should make noise artists and percussion synthesists very happy!



The quick facts:

What is it? A unique "cosmic" noise oscillator in eurorack format.
How big is it? 14HP
How much is it? $249USD
How/when can I get it? It will be available at popular retailers around the globe in June/July. If you know somewhere specific you want to see it, please drop me a line and we'll try to make it happen!

It will also be available as a DIY project from hexinverter.net should you wish to build your own in MOTM/MU/whatever format you desire!

Module Description

Jupiter Storm is a cosmic noise oscillator. It creates sounds that can only be described as out of this world! Where it differs entirely from other pure noise generators (such as vcNOIZ) is in the algorithm used to produce the sound. Jupiter Storm has a tonal character very much of its own.

Jupiter Storm does not create pure white noise like the vcNOIZ noise oscillator module from hexinverter.net. Rather, it derives what is similar to noise (but not quite) from three square wave oscillators in a unique algorithm. Some of the sounds possible are reminiscent of the sound of a broken radio being blasted with noise from the cosmos, hence, the name "cosmic noise oscillator". This creates noise with significant harmonic content and other such interesting timbres you will not hear anywhere else!

Engage the Noise Core Disruptor to create horrific sounds. In this mode, part of the noise core is creatively abused in order to generate insane sonic textures.

Voltage control inputs for all three square wave VCOs in the noise core are available as well as a control voltage input that addresses all three oscillators at once. In this way, very dynamic sounds can be achieved with complex modulation routing. For example, you can apply a taste of LFO modulation to all three oscillators, while modulating a select oscillator simultaneously on its own with something more drastic.

This module is based entirely around analogue opamps and discrete logic gates. No microcontrollers are used in the design of this module.


Technical/Mechanical Specifications

- 14HP
- Requires +/-12V
- Current consumption and module depth TBD

Features

- Unique square wave noise core creates everything from pitched square wave ringmod-esque textures to hissing and screeching noise tones
- Noise core square wave VCOs (not v/oct, but close) each have an output so drones can be created simultaneously alongside noise
- Noise Core Disruptor mode creatively abuses the noise algorithm into creating very interesting noise timbres
- Four noise outputs, each with their own unique sound in Noise Core Disruption mode
- Control voltage input for each oscillator as well as ALL oscillators at once. This allows the creation of complex modulation easily
- Planned expansion module adds percussion-specific features that turn Jupiter Storm into a very capable percussion/sound FX synthesis machine

Demos sound pretty promising. This might be a good noise source for me.

best looking ad ever!

oh wow, just when I was thinking of buying a vcnoiz

may need both

Seriously! I want to buy one based solely on the ad and art work! Well done.
MRTRIP
Will be keeping my eye on this looks very interesting!
sloth713
Holy crap this looks and sounds awesome screaming goo yo

and the ad looks like the cover of some crazy 80's comic book that I would love to read
reppiks
Very tasty and tempting, just when I've decided to settle on my setup confused
boinggg
Yeah,I love the ad. Reminds me that I need to watch more science fiction... maybe I should watch Babylon 5 for the 20th time....

Love the giant TS Connector!
mmelnick
I'm buying one
reppiks
i might need 2...
de_raaf
lookings nice, hope to pick one up, seems like a killer brother next to my imps
FetidEye
WOW... just wow

On the panel, what do the roman numerals stand for? 1, 4, 8, 11? Is that a typo?

Might get this as my first noise source. Demos sound great, especially the formant-like parts.
hollowman
Needs a badass function.










This is awesome Rockin' Banana!
kimu
Great!!! Great sounds and great design!
Love when also the visual and ads part is so well done.
Hope to have a poster of the ads with the module thumbs up

Sounds interesting...

I'm going to cut every lawn in my neighborhood until june to pay for this. 8_)

To be perfectly honest, I was sold on the name alone hihi

That it also sounds fantastic is a bonus nanners
ddoyen
this is awesome. any idea on the price for the kit?

maybe for the moon of jupiter?

I is Io
IV is Callisto
VIII is Pasiphaë
XI is Carme

Yes, of course w00t

This could be the most appropriate name for an eurorack module, ever SlayerBadger!
