Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas with Silver Panel
Basimiuls Iteritas is a digital drum synthesizer with its roots in the analog world. At its heart is a six oscillator additive synthesizer with adjustable waveform, harmonic spread, attack, decay and noise. These get fed into a built in wave folder for extra crunch.
The pitch knob and CV input adjusts the pitch of the fundamental oscillator. This is a 1v/8va standard input. The knob sums with the CV input.
The decay knob and CV input adjust the decay for all oscillators. The knob scales the CV input.
The attack knob and CV input adjust the attack for all oscillators. When left of center noise is added. When dead center a classic analog style pop is produced. When right of center the knob slows the attack. The knob scales the CV input.
The morph knob and CV control the waveform of all oscillators. This blends through: sin, triangle, saw, and square continuously. The knob scales the CV input.
The fold knob and CV control the infinifold section. For the first 3/4 of the range this sets the threshold of the folder. This folder will dynamically add multiple fold stages to maximize the amount of folding based on the fold threshold and signal amplitude. When the control is in the top quarter of its range a pulse train based on the signal is mixed in to give even more harmonic content. The knob scales the CV input.
The harmonic knob and CV control the harmonic decay of the oscillators. When full left only one oscillator is audible. This simulates many simple analog bass drums. As the parameter is increased more harmonics blend in lasting longer periods of time. The knob scales the CV input.
Fully CCW the tone produced is a single harmonic tone. From there to the first quarter a second tone fades in. The remaining turning extends first the decays then the amplitudes of the other four harmonics.
The spread knob and CV control the frequency spacing of the oscillators. This allows the overtone series to vary from a purely harmonic to very in-harmonic.
The Skin/Metal switch changes the algorithm from six oscillator additive (skin) to a six oscillator FM (metal). The metal setting is designed to produce metallic sound such as cymbals and high hats where the skin setting is for more tonal percussion such as bass drums.
The Bass/Treble switch offsets the fundamental pitches to move the BI into a range suitable for generating cymbal and high hat sounds.
The trigger input triggers the start of a drum sound. It is a rising edge trigger which has a threshold of around 3 V.
The Hit switch allows one to manually trigger Basimilus Iteritas.
The output is a low impedance audio source of about +- 9v. The output varies significantly based on the parameterization as compensation for loudness occurs.
