Nobsrine Demo

from Nobsrine Demo by Tripping on Wires

  • This is a simple but weird sounding instrument controlled with 2 simple knobs and 2 portmanteau switches. It samples the turns and energy of knob twists to modulate triangle oscillators and you can get a shifting range of unusual moans, drones, and shrieks. It's on a 3.5mm stereo output so you can mix/isolate/pan the oscillators for stereo effects or processing.

    This build also features experimental patch points. The oscillators are connected internally and I have exposed these connections for experimentation.

    This small batch is built on PCB (not paper) and housed in a handmade birch plywood box with a custom front panel. I've oiled the wood too for protection and to bring out the grain.

    It runs off of a 9-volt battery (not supplied due to postage restrictions).

    Shipping includes insurance and tracking. I know it's high but it's not inflated, it's actual cost.

    Credit where it's due of course, this is an unofficial Peter Blasser/Ciat-Lonbarde build. I made one for myself and the minimum orders of PCBs/panels are 5 and so I've made a small batch. The original paper circuit (and lots of other cool stuff) can be found here - www.ciat-lonbarde.net/paper/

  • Ciat-Lonbarde Nobsrine PCB

    This is a simple but weird sounding instrument controlled with 2 simple knobs and 2 portmanteau switches. It samples the turns and energy of knob twists to modulate triangle oscillators and you can get a shifting range of unusual moans, drones, and shrieks. It's also designed for stereo (or 2 outputs/speakers) with sounds moving about between left and right. These are excess PCBs I had made based upon Ciat-Lonbarde's Nobsrine (ciat-lonbarde.net/paper/). Originally a paper circuit only, I have transcribed this into Osmond and generated the necessary PCB manufacturing files. You can check this out (along with notes and BOM) yourself - gitlab.com/tripping-on-wires/ciat-lonbarde-pcbs/-/tree/master/papers/nobsrine.

about

Ciat-Lonbarde's Nobsrine is a simple but weird sounding instrument controlled with only 2 knobs and 2 portmanteau switches. It samples the turns and energy of knob twists to modulate triangle oscillators and you can get a shifting range of unusual moans, drones, and whistles, all shifting across a stereo spectrum.

Here's a demo of a Nobsrine I built using PCBs transcribed from Peter Blasser's original Paper Circuit (ciat-lonbarde.net/paper/ and gitlab.com/tripping-on-wires/ciat-lonbarde-pcbs/-/tree/master/papers/nobsrine).

I have some excess boards for sale in the merch section.
