Malekko Heavy Industry is thrilled to offer the Richter NoiseRing in eurorack format. Sanctioned by Grant Richter of Wiard Synthesizer Company, this module is the same as the original Wiard Model 1210.
NoiseRing is a digital random voltage generator which can output quantized random voltages. Used at high clock rates it acts as a digital tone generator, similar to a noisy digital tone-wheel. NoiseRing also offers an internal clock generator with output, plus an analog white noise source.
Based on a shift register, NoiseRing processes its 8-bit information and reads them into its memory as a repetitive random sequence. Stepping thru the eight steps of this sequence is done by external or internal clock. The rate control sets the internal clock rate.
The CHANGE potentiometer affects if and how many new data are read into memory. The more new data, the more the sequence changes.
The CHANCE control determines if the new data that are to be written into memory (derived from the noise source) rather contain 'ones' or 'zeroes.'
The random voltage outputs 1 and 2 have an amplitude of 0-10V and give quantized voltages. Either it quantizes to 1V steps (octave intervals) or 1/12V (semitone intervals).
Clock in audio rates make NoiseRing play digital tones which can range also into digital noise. The Change control has a big effect on the sound character.
