la ruidosa

Portable noise marker, lofi, easy and repairable. Made with easy parts and waste.
(Sintetizador casero hecho a partir de desechos locales) La ruidosa takes electronically signal to process like a sound source, putting level as a instrument level, process through filters and preamps, fuzz, distortion, overdrive and passive filters. I started this project in 2007 searching original sounds for my mix, trying as a dub siren. ruidosa is one of the most rare and popular home made synth in Chile.

Curator note Maker Park Radio is a volunteer-run, non-profit community internet radio broadcasting from Staten Island, NYC. is dedicated to providing free music and live arts programming 24 hours a day. They reached out to a few of our MMF makers and engaged in conversation around the maker, their project, their inspirations and more.

Side story During September 2007, influenced by Jamaican dub siren and the use of a simple theremin I decide to start my own diy synth project, it start with a 555 from a toaster trash. I put down signal from 555 to instrument level an connect together whit synodal and pulse in mix trough transistor fuzz face generating sounds like a Horgan or weird sounds.
its mounted on a "free" cola drink plastic box of 80`s.
during first tree years ad mods and new modules in "air" mode circuitry, and ad first spring reverb. in 2010 traspase to little perfboards modules for more stability. in ruidosa2010( link) can hear sweet and shine reverb on the pulse. in 2012 found on street some components and extract a different version of pt2399. bent it and add to "la ruidosa" together a voice recorder chip from toy.
in 2017 finally I know about decoupler capacitors and Sart to understand filters, with this I start a way to clean and form better noise from the machine.
