Solina Hi-Fi : Rotator

Rotator is a sound installation. 16 speakers hung at ear height, 16 discrete inputs.

The force of the sound in the centre is fairly intense, pressure waves from 360 degrees. Using a modular synth with 16 oscillators under voltage control combined with 16 voltage controlled amplifiers enables sound to be rotated in both directions simultaneously. Indeed each speaker can be addressed directly under voltage control. The source for this particular installation was a complex frequency modulated drone, slowly evolving into a rotating Risset tone.

In future we hope to use this system to create a more fractured acoustic space.

Solina Hi-Fi in performance tonight...

Should be interesting, live hexadecimal sound setup - forget quadrophonic! - all sounds produced on analogue modular synth... acoustic illusion...

CGS Sequential Switch

Version 1 panel design for the CGS Sequential Switch in Bananafrac. I added a CV channel for a combined 8-step CV sequencer, each CV stage can also be selected as the input for the Sequential Switch with a toggle (idea stolen from Tragedybysyntax - thanks!). I also added a seperate pulse/gate channel (based on the CGS07 Gate Sequencer), a manual reset and a step button.

Living VCO's

First of four Living VCO's from Juergen Haible. I added Sine and Triangle outputs alongside Pulse and Saw. I was sorely tempted to add the sine waveshaper from the Buchla 259 too, but I think they'd make better modules on their own. I'm going to make two like this with banana jacks in euro format, and two in bananafrac... Just need to wire the others up...
