Bizmuth Modular Bizmuth
Bi-directional switch-based controller/signal router
Bizmuth is a gesture based chaotic signal router and gate generator. You can route switch or combine up to six signals, or generate up to six gates by turning three endless knobs with one hand. Small tweaks can have large effects on routing or gates, giving the module a very tactile and chaotic feel.
If you are into noise, glitch, sound design, or chaos, Bizmuth is a great tool for you on stage and in the studio.
The module has three identical switches with three IO Jacks each: A, B and C. All operate according to the same four step connection sequence: A B C, A-B C, A-B-C, A B-C, and so on. (A dash (-) indicates a connection.)
As you turn a knob, the connection sequence of the corresponding switch advances and new connections appear between the three IO jacks. The connection sequence repeats 24 times in one full 360 revolution. That means you have a different patch every 3.75 degrees.
All jacks are bi-directional, which means you can use them as inputs and outputs as well. For example, you can route a signal from the B IO jack to A, A and C, or just C, just like you can route two signals from A and/or C to B.
Bizmuth has three preexisting connections also known as normalizations, which help you to realize more complex routing and to generate gates. All B IO jacks are normalized from top to bottom, and if a 16 pin power connector is plugged in, 5V is normalized to the top switches B IO jack. The actual gate out voltage is 4.8V.
That means, that as long as you don’t plug a cable in a B IO jack, it will be connected to the B IO jack above, or 5V if it’s the top one. Try leaving all B IOs empty and patch any A or C IO to a gate or trigger input! Turn the knob of the switch and notice the gates! A total of 6 gates can be generated if you use all A andC IOs.
