An Intro To The tELHARMONIC Noise Algorithm

This video introduces the single voice Noise Algorithm, N-OUT, on the Make Noise tELHARMONIC.

tELHARMONIC features three electronic tone generation techniques that are historically important, but infrequently implemented within modular synthesizers.

The Noise Algorithm, N-OUT, is inspired by the Music III patch that composer James Tenney wrote at Bell Labs in 1961 for his rst computer music piece, Analog 1: Noise Study.

It consists of two band-limited noise sidebands, which surround the frequency set by TONIC and DEGREE. FLUX controls the width of the sidebands, which can go from extremely narrow (for a uttering sinusoid) to full bandwidth. Using these two controls, almost any color of noise may be generated.

Details on the tELHARMONIC are available at the Make Noise site.
