Lumanoise_LDR Synths_



I originally developed the Lumanoise synths family, for the Otolab performance Megatsunami.
After some prototype and live test we decide to realize the pcb and made a small production for workshop and selling, these are pre-production prototypes.

The lumanoise family are 3 models.


Lumanoise V1

The lumanise V1 have one square osc, one 12bit sawtooth osc.
The oscillators pitch is controlled by a photo resistor, each oscillator have a volume pot.
A 12 db low pass resonant filter, specially developed by LEP for the project lumanoise, the filter cut-off can be controlled by the potentiometer or the photoresistor.

Lumanoise V2

The lumanoise V2 heve one square osc, one 12bit sawtooth osc. and 2 trautonium like sub oscillator.
We were inspired by the great Oskar Sala Trautonium synth oscillator.
We use one master oscillator under LDR control and 2 sub oscillator, where you can set the frequency.
The oscillators pitch is controlled by a photo resistor, each oscillator have a volume pot.
A 12 db low pass resonant filter, the filter cut-off can be controlled by the potentiometer or the photoresistor.

808 cymbal drone generator

The 808 cymbal drone generator use 6 fixed frequency square wave oscillators.
The oscillator frequency came from the cluster oscillator circuit used in the TR808 drum machine for creating cymbal sound, in fact these are the harmonic frequencies of the sounds of metal plate.
Each oscillators have a volume pot. and the 12 db low pass resonant filter, the filter cut-off can be controlled by the potentiometer or the photoresistor.

The Lumanoise box are made of plywood 3mm laser cut, different textures will be available soon.


Recently Chris and Cosey was in Milano for a Carter Tutti show so I gave him a 808 cymbal drone generator :)

Lumanoise


The Lumanoise is a drone synth I’ve develop for Otolab’s performance Megatsunami.
It's one square wave oscillator and one 12 bit sawtooth wave oscillator.
The pitch it’s controlled by 2 indipendent photo resistors and a 2 ch mixer.
Using different light on stage it’s possible to create nice synestetic effect.
