Noise Engineering Announces Pura Ruina, Final ‘Distortion-of-the-Month’ For 2019

Noise Engineering has announced Pura Ruina, the final distortion module of the year in their Distortion-of-the-Month series.

Noise Engineering’s Kris Kaiser says, “If I’m honest, [Pura Ruina] is my favorite of the bunch. It is musical and fun and can be used in an incredible variety of ways. I’m enjoying the heck out of the thing.”

Pura Ruina is a multiband Full-Wave Rectification distortion with extensive CV control.

Kaiser explains:

“While processes like wavefolding are common in Eurorack, full-wave rectification is an unusual spin on waveshaping distortions. Pura Ruina ?has a dry stage, plus three independent stages of rectification with individual outputs. The CV-able level controls and sum output add to the fun. With this much control, the amount of harmonic content generated from even simple waveforms like sine waves is immense and unexpected. Pura Ruina’s ?uses are quite diverse: it can make an interesting replacement for a traditional wavefolder in a Buchla-esque complex oscillator setup, create wild new sounds processing percussion, delicately shape harmonics when designing sounds from scratch, and much, much more.”

Pricing and Availability.

Noise Engineering’s Pura Ruina Full-Wave Rectification distortion module retails for $180 US and is in stock and available now from dealers and from the Noise Engineering website.
