14hp to fill advice-wogglebug or noisering

Post by dbuyense » Mon Nov 16, 2009 1:47 am

I was thinking of getting a 2nd wogglebug , but am considering a noisering. any opinions . My impression of the noisering is I don't care for the samples I've heard from it used as a audio source , don't need another noise source , I do like samples I've heard of it processing audio , I think I would use it alot as a modulation source. I've heard the noisering and wogglebug compliment each other. What do you all do with your noiserings the most in patches audio source/processing signals/or for modulating.
So whats some opinions a 2nd wogglebug , a noisering or maybe even a plan b asr leaving 10hp open for something else.

The last few days I've been working up a patch with the Noise Ring at the center. As a direct semi-chaotic source of cv/oct it's incredible fun, but when you mult it to a few sources it quickly gets fantastic. I've got a patch in the works now using its noise source for a snare, and its clock output as the master clock of a complex LFO mishmash. It's struck me as reaching straight into the core of the classic Subotnick recordings (with the Maths playing a huge part).

Not sure how it would be used "processing audio"? It's a modulation source at the core. I'd like to get what I'm working on up as a demo soon.

"processing audio" wasn't a good way for me to say it.
Quoting the wiard site "Processing External Data" through the chance input.

I don't have my wogglebug (built) yet.

But my noisering is really usefull for:
-creating semi random musical phrases
-Nice oscillator
-Noisesource
-Clock source
-Interesting blinky blink

One of my favourite modules.

For me it's a modulation source, waveform processor and digital oscilator/noise generator. I use it for all this applications.

If you allready have a wooglebug, I would take the noisering, very flexible and fun.

Okay, I'm debating over the same thing. Just on paper, as I have no modules yet. I have an MFB Kraftzwerg, which has a S&H noise waveform on one of the LFO's and has a white noise source available.

Which of these two modules would serve me the best, at least in a smaller set up? Just to give you a general idea on my first set up, it'll include a QMMG, a Maths, some mixers, a ring modulator (if the moddemod isn't available, I'll build a dual CGS real ring mod), an A-189 bit crusher, an A-137 Wavefolder, an A-143-3 Quad LFO, an A-156 dual quantizer and the RS-35 pitch to CV. I haven't decided on a first filter, but it's between the Wasp, the Boogie and the Z2040. I'll probably add a Hertz Donut and a Zorlon Cannon afterwards.

If it helps: I've just made two demos mainly with the Noisering as an audio source, modulated by a A-143-3 LFO (first one) and polarized mixture of two A-143-3 LFOs and one A-143-1 AD (second one):

Nothing fancy but I think you'll get an idea of the sound.

i don't have a wogglebug, but i would have to be pretty desperate to sell my noise ring.

I don't have a noisering but I'd be hard pressed to sell my wogglebug. go with the noisering if you have to chose then if you want a second wogglebug down the road, get it!

Here is a quick demo I made with my Wiard modules : 2X antiosc, Noisering, Miniwave, Boogie, Borg, Wooglebug.

All the noisy/mettalic sounds comes from the noisering, the sound in the end are antiosc modulated by wooglebug and send through the chance input of the noisering.

thanks for posting that demo.
I decided to reserve 14hp for a noise ring , if I feel like I need a second wogglebug after getting a noisering I'll just have to make room.
I need a miniwave I think i'm going to have to start up a row of frac I e-mailed blacet asked when and if the miniwave will be available in euro he said not anytime soon.

Nice track!
If only someone would invent a synth that would allow the end user to determine the functionality. You could pick which functions were important to you in 'modules'. A 'modular', if you will. - Stretta

The noisering and the wogglebug do compliment eachother, they're based on 2 different buchla circuits which were toghether in the "source of uncertainty" module, so yes, YOU NEED BOTH!

Get the piston honda? I think it'll be like the miniwave, only 10x better!
