Title: gear setup for noise (pictures)
Post by: jesusfaggotchrist on April 05, 2014, 08:22:17 PM
here is the current setup for Arseterror, I use a number of apps, Droneatron, Grain Synth and 8-Buckaroo, wired into a bass guitar effects/distortion unit, and a Peavey combo practice amp with the distortion channel on.

makes for great harsh noise. the Droneatron can be used as a sampler for war speeches, ambience, insect sounds, and military/battle samples as well as synth drones and I can even record synth fx from the Grain Synth and import it into the Droneatron and loop it and process it through pitchshifting, delay, flange, phase and and even weird fx like pitch bend, drone, and randomizer.

Not 'equal' or 'valuable' per se, just valid in the context of posting on the gear forum of a messageboard. IE I think it's acceptable and OK to do so. In general it can be interesting/useful, it's nice (to me) to just see loads of them. the specifics don't worry me too much, it's good to have an overview of what people are doing even if one given photo might not be great in itself, and it doesn't really do anyone any harm. Even if it's a 'bad' photo or not an interesting setup that can, as here, induce constructive criticism which could be helpful.

Back on topic here's a recent setup of mine:

Nice MXR Bluebox. I used to play around with one of those quite a bit. The original 70's blue box's sound amazing.

Would you be able to describe what some of those units are and what you use them for? You have a very interesting setup.


Title: Re: gear setup for noise (pictures)
Post by: Cementimental on April 18, 2014, 10:34:07 PM
Yeah the Blue Box is great. Mine is a more recent one, I've done the mod where you remove a capacitor for more volume/better sound, dunno how it compares to the 70's original.
I saw a kit for a modified clone version with added options such as a switch to change between one and two octaves down, i might get that soon. http://shop.pedalparts.co.uk/Blue_Fool_MXR_Blue_Box_clone/p847124_9554536.aspx

thanks :) in this photo: Behringer mixer, I like this one due to the number of useful channels vs some of the more noise-scene-standard models, + it has both pre and post fader sends, a couple of channel inserts etc. the thing in the centre is the Ghostbox, one of my earliest and best circuitbent things, the circuit is from a ghostbusters voicechanger toy, mounted in an old radio casing. Can make all sorts of harsh noise, tones, gabber-ish beats etc on its own. Reverb tank from an old amp on the top right, driven by an FX send and put thru the envelope filter and Metal-X. DOD Metal-X is supposedly identical/similar to the rarer and more expensive Corrosion, tho I haven't compared them, just read on the internet that's the case. Anyway it's a really nice distortion and easy to find cheap on ebay... Bottom left corner; two homemade fuzz pedals based on this circuit - http://home-wrecker.com/bazz.html - the red one contains 4 in a row! and the clear box is two of them as per the 'buzz box' at the bottom of that page. Both made with pretty much whatever random components i had to hand, they sound pretty nasty and sometimes pick up christian radio stations really clearly :D

@ Cementimental

I see you are using a reverb spring. How is the signal quality through this one? A friend have a similar, he have to crank up the gain or use an overdrive or something similar to get the juice out of it. When that is said, it produces excellent sound.


Title: Re: gear setup for noise (pictures)
Post by: Cementimental on April 18, 2014, 11:50:15 PM
I was using it more as an instrument in this particular setup but I've found that I can get a clean spring reverb sound running it off the FX send of behringer mixers without anything additional, I think different tanks may need a hotter signal tho?


Title: Re: gear setup for noise (pictures)
Post by: online prowler on April 19, 2014, 10:53:38 PM
You might have a point re hot signal on various tanks. Using it in a chain sounds like a good idea for efx purposes. So you where playing on the strings? Nice one. Speaking of chain... are you running the Blue box as one - or is it connected to the third channel from the left? I've been considering to purchase one for myself, but I have to acquire a couple of other pedals before I can go dwn that round.    


Title: Re: gear setup for noise (pictures)
Post by: Cementimental on April 19, 2014, 11:31:44 PM
yeah touching/scraping the strings makes good sounds :)

I think in this setup I had FX send -> blue box -> a channel, so I could feed any other channel thru it and/or feed it back, sounds like Zeus' ZX Spectrum loading :D

I think that even if it's a setup that you've seen many times, if the person is doing something interesting with it - it's worth hearing/seeing. I've seen a lot of setups where it's contact mic -> dod distortion (grunge/thrash/whatever) -> mixer. Is that interesting in and of itself? No, maybe not - but settings, environments etc are all factors that lots of people want to discredit/discount. That stuff can be gleaned from the most typical setup and boring photo.

Here's Skull Servant NE/SE's setup for the last couple months.

Got a third micro pedal (the really cheap rat clone on the left, like £15 from China on ebay) today, tried a really tiny feedback loop. :) Not many pedals this size are actually all that cheap, and most of them are clones of pretty boring/non-extreme pedals, but they are cute and saving table and bag space in pedal-centric live setups is very appealing :)

Nice low-tech show in a squatted art/community space. I was supposed to make my idea of 'pop music' but that whole concept went out of the window since I didn't have time to prepare anything so I just went for contact mic junk via home made fuzz and bought octaves. :)

Just curious to know how you use the Tascam (it's a Portastudio 414 right ?) in live condition ? I bought one and want to use for tape loops. If you have tips and tricks for feedbacking or cool stuff like that I'm all ears.


Title: Re: gear setup for noise (pictures)
Post by: tinnitustimulus on July 18, 2014, 11:52:01 PM
I prefer TASCAM 424 mk I and mk II for better tape speed options, but mine are broken. I use loops but I also switch over to live channels. for feedback loops i usually just put the effect sends to the line in channels, but i've seen the headphone jack used too, I just burn things out too fast to want to try that.

For multitrack tape loops, the only advice I'd have is to make each channel distinct, each a different frequency range, a different texture, but make it complementary to each other, like adding colors to a palette to make a painting. It is better not to have every channel full sounding because they are just going to cancel eachother out, though I like having one channel that does this to cut everything else out suddenly.  

Sometimes i record loops on the fly during the performance, but it's never usually good. Even when I saw a performance where one was using live instruments and one trying to do tape loops of the other, it just came out with not very engaging loops. It's not a immediate effect like the loop station, it needs more engagement and prep.

That I also "cheat" and use a  digital delay on the fx loop to loop the loops to more loops, and use a pre amp so the signal will go over everything else since effects loops try to be tame to prevent feedback. Keeps the process more organic and interesting, and sometimes I'm practically making a song using the pitch control with it, albeit a very crude one which keeps me in the harsh noise realm hopefully (though I did steal that technique from someone who is released on Not Not Fun multiple times).

No need for any clever effects, just clean boost and more clean boost and optional Rat clone (tho that almost seems like cheating) thru tube drive/preamp. Actually sounds pretty immense with just the 2ube on it's own. Yet to successfully do much with this setup, gigs i've brought it to so far have been unsatisfactory sound-wise so far alas and haven't done it justice. :-/ I need to just record it loud thru a bass amp onto tape some time soon.

Hello Mr. Cementimental, I noticed in one of your pics you have a Korg Monotron that looks like it was cracked open and bent, What did you do to it and what was the overall effect of doing this? I love monotrons, i think they are fun and cool little toys that could have a bit more potential. I know nothing about modding things but would like to start..thanx!
I've got the original monotron and the duo but yet to circuitbend them so maybe it was something else you saw/someone else's gear in one of my shots? Not sure... Anyway monotron mods are very well documented on various sites  + they can be turned into a much more advanced synth (i've even seen them made into semi-modular kind of things which is probably what i'll try)... It's more of a 'theory' modification thing than a good random circuitbending target, digital keyboards etc are better for that..

Got a weird casio keyboard with built in double cassette deck and radio! Been recording some noise 80's style, re-dubbing stuff by recording tape to tape while playing additional keyboard and external tape deck totally distorted thru the mic in. The shoebox deck here can record with fast forward jammed down for nice super-slowed down murk.

Casio CK-500. some models seem to have different types of radio in them, mine has LW/MW/FM but some i've seen have shortwave which would be even more amazing :)

Ha yeah sorry if the image came out huge..

Current Live Fleeting Breath set-up. As of this week and for a performance this weekend.

- Modular rig run into mixer.
- Sampler loaded with all kinds of fun into mixer.
- Dronelab into Alesis Nanoverb and Filter Queen, mixer.
- 4 track with loop tape and cassette of pre-recorded loop improv into primitive 2-channel mixer/"echo box", then DD-5, then mixer.

That's it. Crappy zoom multi-effect into FX loop of mixer for limiting and reverb.

Picked up a slightly battered Fostex M80 cheap recently. Reel to reel 8-tracker. It will either be indispendible to my setup or just take up space.

Tomorrow I will go to pick it. Can't wait to test it!!!

No pics of my current live setup, but it's a Samson mixer with two iOS systems - one controlled by Arturia minikeys -  and a vocal setup using a Boss DE200 delay into a Digitech DSP-128.
I used to use all hardware live, but since the majority of SUBKLINIK stuff is sequenced, the iOS programs work perfectly.

My new gear:
Mooer ShimVerb Digital Reverb
Apollo Relaxer Synth Oscillator built by Apollo Music Service
and my gorgeous white kitty :)

Thanx a lot to Marco Wertham for letting me know about little Mooer Reverb. Can't wait to test it!

Latest "noise" mobile rig, although I have been able to get quick a lot of "rhythm" from this lot so I would call it more of an industrial rig to be honest.  I'm not sure what genre / tag my sounds are but I don't really care.

What's that thin white rectangle in the upper right? Looks like an MP3 player

Its an Olympus LS-P1

I use it for making field recordings but also recording out direct from the mixer.

Oh yeah it was my friend's side of the setup, I think actually it's just broken rather than modified tho ha :D

Yeah just google 'monotron mods' etc and you should find some good guidelines, there's even official schematics from korg out there

my old CV modded Monotron makes a handy test VCO^
screws on side are wired to points on PCB...
Eye use alligator clips with it
bought it the day it was released...
played noise show with it that night..
old digicam photos...
used it expansion for my modular Sequential Circuits Pro One
made it run with the built in sequencer
hmmm where the fuck is it....
...also have Monotron Duo hiding around here somewhere
here is a quick start:

That case is so crammed, thus it's impossible putting in 3.5mm jacks.
The other option is create breakout box.
found some other points poking around on the circuit...
