HANDMADE SONIC DEVICES


« on: May 29, 2017, 08:36:14 PM »

Hi guys,
just tought that this can interest some of you:



Dāo is a pattern controlled gater capable of turning every signal connected to the INPUT JACK into a rhythmic sequence, passing or muting it towards the OUTPUT JACK.
The rhythm patterns are based on the position of two knobs, PATTERN LENGTH and CHOP NUMBER, allowing an intuitive use of the device. Users can generate up to 136 patterns by setting these knobs.
The ON/BYPASS switch is used to turn the effect on and to start the pattern generation.
The CLOCK RATE knob is used to set the internal sequencer tempo.
The DECAY switch is used to choose the chopped audio slices length. Using SHORT setting is possible to obtain percussive sounds from every kind of continous sound as pads, drone and noise sounds.
Dāo generates a 5 Volts pulse, at the beginning of each step, on the SYNC OUTPUT jack. It can also be synchronized to external devices using the SYNC INPUT jack. When a jack is connected to the SYNC INPUT, the CLOCK RATE knob has no effect and the sync signal is replicated to the SYNC OUTPUT allowing synchronization of compatible equipment.
Dāo must be supplied with an external power supply, providing 9vDC on 2.1mm barrel jack, negative tip.

got mine a couple of months ago, quite a different beast than the rest of Kinetik machines, but pretty useful to create crazy patterns and complex textures.

Are there any video reviews of this being used with anything other than a guitar?

So I looked into buying one of these and they are out of stock and not planning on making any more which seems like a very short product life to me.

 Was quite keen on the idea - so if anyone has or knowns of one for sale let me know. Unless they are actually shit which is why they've stopped production?
