Fairly Confusing Waveforms releases Cracklebot & Cracklebot Red for Kontakt

Fairly Confusing Waveforms has released Cracklebot, a free vinyl noise machine for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Fairly Confusing Waveforms Cracklebot

Cracklebot is automated drum machine based on vinyl noise samples. I sampled worn and dirty, empty grooves from my vinyl collection. Lead-ins, lead-outs, silent parts in between tracks, those have been chopped to 115 short slices or pops, crackles, scratches and noises.

Cracklebot is sequencing them into tempo synchronized, noise grooves. The machine can create new, random patterns on a single click, so it’s quite fun play with.

Also available is Cracklebot Red, a modified version:

  • uses 4 convolution units instead of 2, replaced the delays, this needs considerably powerful CPU.
  • reverb mixdown knob now controls return of all 4 units, delay mix knob is replaced with dry signal level knob, so now you can listen to just wet output of all reverbs.
  • there are now 12 layers/tracks per groove instead of 9.
  • there are small adjustments in groove generation constraints, larger possible sequences, different possible sequence speeds, etc.

Both Cracklebot instrument libraries are available for download at no charge. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2 or higher.

Audio Damage releases Mad Hatter Eurorack module

Audio Damage Mad Hatter

Audio Damage has launched Mad Hatter, a new Eurorack format digital noise module.

What do you get when you take a shift register noise generator and the six-square-wave oscillator stack from the TR606 cymbal source and put ‘em in one unit? Mad Hatter!

As a digital noise source, Mad Hatter is, well, as versatile as a digital noise source can really be. The COLOR control and CV input is the clock speed of the shift register, from chaotic oscillations to white noise.

This noise is then paired with the oscillator stack, six square waves at frequencies measured from our own TR-606. (For added versatility, the COLOR knob also controls the pitch of two of those oscillators, sweeping them over a 1-octave range.) The oscillators run through a pair of bandpass filters, in the same manner as the TR-606’s cymbal sound.

This whole mess goes to a high-pass filter, with a frequency controlled with the HPF FILTER FREQ knob and CV input. After that, it’s out the out-hole to your favorite VCA, for easy-to-patch hi-hat and cymbal sounds.

Mad Hatter features

  • Digital shift register noise plus 6 square wave oscillators for easy x0x-style cymbal synthesis.
  • COLOR knob controls shift register noise clock and oscillator stack pitch.
  • HPF FREQ knob controls high-pass filter frequency.
  • CROSSFADE knob mixes from audio input, through noise, to oscillator stack.
  • CV control of all parameters.
  • 8HP panel size.
  • Skiff-friendly 20mm depth.
  • 90ma current draw.

Mad Hatter is available for purchase for $189 USD.
