  • Ciat-Lonbarde Esoterica Chainlock PCB

    Ciat-Lonbarde's Esoterica is a pair of circuits (along with Spikering) described as "for Phase Lock Loop Resynthesizing of Monophony (with a tambourine component)". The original papers are available here - www.ciat-lonbarde.net/TIMARACURRICULUM/TIMARATERIALS/cirques/index.html

    Chainlock is simply explained as "a freeform circuit" but I've also seen it referred to as a chain of LFOs. Either way, it pairs nicely with some Rollz-5 to generate pulse triggers. Reportedly, other external modules, e.g. Eurorack stuff can trigger nicely too.

    Chainlock and Spikering also play quite nicely together pinging pulses off of each other (though some Rollz is still recommended).

    Notes on how these PCBs were converted from paper, BOM, and build info is all available here - gitlab.com/tripping-on-wires/ciat-lonbarde-pcbs
