Noise Engineering has introduced two new large-format MU modules – Ataraxic Iteritas Magnus & Cursus Iteritas Magnus.
Ataraxic Iteritas Magnus is an aggressive oscillator that they say ’embraces all the cool and unique sounds that can be made with a digital architecture’.
AIM generates its sounds with a unique architecture: first, you pick one of three bit tables to give you your initial waveforms. Those waveforms can then be scrolled through, shaped, folded, noise-modulated, comb filtered, and more, all with AIM’s various front-panel controls and corresponding CV inputs.
Cursus Iteritas Magnus gives the user spectral-like controls over three different modes, based on different conceptualizations of frequency:
- Fourier, which uses sine waves;
- Daubechies, using wavelets, and
- Walsh mode, using the Walsh transform.
NE says that “they’re basically just different ways to create a nice-sounding harmonic structure in a waveform, and they give you a bunch of cool parameters to change how everything is put together”.
