Come to patchpoint for a special ÷NCOM DIY Build Session with Dr. Wiener
You will learn how to build and calibrate this module if you are beginner or an expert.
First Dr. Wiener will give an explanation and show the many uses of the wonderful and mysterious module & then he and the patch point team will guide you building the module.
Build should take 20 minutes to 1 hour depending on your skill level!
Space is limited to 10!
Special Kit Price for the workshop!
The Serge Divide by N Comparator (NCOM) is a rare, much sought-after and very essential Serge module covering a number of functions: comparator, voltage-controlled pulse divider, and voltage-controlled staircase generator.
The ÷N COMPARATOR consists of two sections - a comparator (right side) and a voltage-controlled pulse divider (left side). The ÷N output of the pulse divider sends out a pulse on every N-th comparator pulse where N is a number from 1 to 31. N can be (pre-)set with the divider’s control knob (1 ÷N) and can by changed with a control voltage. The VC knob (attenuator)on the bottom of the left side determines how much effect the control voltage has on “N”. In addition, the divider generates a staircase waveform with N steps. This can be used to produce whole-tone steps when run into the 1V/Oct input of a VCO or as a stepped control voltage to change for instance the cutoff of a filter.
The comparator provides a number of useful “housekeeping functions”: Logical decisions (if the +input is greater than the -input, the output will be high, otherwise low), Level detection (whenever a variable waveform crosses the theshold, a pulse is generated ), Pulse width modulation or Rectifying a waveform (e.g. a sine or triangle wave). (More applications and info in the Build Doc).
We are happy to host a special DIY workshop with our portland buddies 4MS.
THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR ALL SKILL LEVELS, and shouldn’t take more than 1.5 hours to finish!
Allissa from 4MS and founder of the Synth Library Portland will guide the workshop.
Limited to 20 spaces, You can sign up and either pay 50% deposit (119) and the rest in cash 120 at the workshop, or pay 100% in full up front. The choice is yours.
Please select the time you will come and start. Patch Point is a relatively small space, so we are staggering the start times! Please be on time!
"The Spectral Multiband Resonator from 4ms Company is an innovative resonant filter which can process audio like a classic filter bank, ring like a marimba when plucked/struck, vocode, re-mix tracks, harmonize, output spectral data, quantize audio to scales, and much more...
The 4MS SMR kit is available only at workshops. You won't ever find this kit in dealers or online, so be sure to come and meet us for a chance to build your own. This DIY module is half the cost of the built unit "
Deposit required: 50% deposit or pay in full
Capacity is limited - First come first serve
Note: Build time varies but it's recommended to give yourself around an hour and a half to patiently complete this project.
