Bass Drone Machine
Four full range oscilators, a mixing matrix, LFO and Low Pass Filter in-a-box.
Sound exploration device This is one of our standarized models. Four raw and wild full-range oscilators are fed into an equaly wild Low Pass Filter. The 100% bleed Low Frecuency Oscilator afects the stream in different ways depening on its intensity setting. Nice and easy layout for a wide range of simples and complex tones.
Frequently Asked Questions
What inspired you to do this?
Once i've learned to built oscilators based on the integrated circuit CMOS 40106, and knowing that you can build up to six oscilators with the same chip, i knew i have to develop a multi-oscilators sound machine. Next thing was the low pass filter addition and the instrument was closed.
How long did it take to make it?
We take 2 weeks to build one from scratch.
How long have you been doing things like this?
We have been building noise machines fron 7 years now, but they weren't this smooth looking and sounding at the begining. We keep improving our products year after year.
How much did this cost to do?
About 80 dolars.
Have you done other things like this?
Yes, we do have another items we designed based on the same architecture.
Are there plans available to make this? Do you sell this?
We do sell this kind of instruments. We don't have much documentation about it but we do give workshops to teach interested people to know how to make it and other electronic instruments like it.
Nicholas Collins "Handmade electronic music" book, blog's "Logic Noise" series, "Synth DIY for non engineers" facebook group, Modwiggler forum and many nice people who share they knowledge over the web.

We are a couple, Cristina is the sound artist and Ricardo is the electronic music producer. We build our own electronic instruments and play live almost-improvised full-experimental sessions with it for 7 years now.

How I can help you:
Our goal is to find nice and easy configurations for multipropouse, limited and creative, non-conventional electronic musical instruments.
Our first motivation for designing instruments is our own personal setup, but then some designs become standar models we build to sell. We are also open for customers needs so we also build custom made instruments.
