Nervous Squirrel has announced that the Ore-some Volts, a Eurorack synthesizer module that generates random control voltages, gates and triggers from uranium ore, is now available.
Using the module, radioactive events from a jar filled with uranium ore can be used to control compositional parameters.
A borosilicate glass jar filled with uranium ore is mounted in front of a Geiger counter, which detects ionizing radiation emitted by the rocks.The timings of the radioactive events are mapped to a control voltage output and a number of gate/trigger outputs. These can be useful for creating unpredictable variations in your synth patches.
There is a trigger output that creates a pulse whenever an event is detected, and also a group of six outputs that can be set as either triggers or gates.
Pricing and Availability:
The Ore-some Volts is available now for £495.00 GBP.
