The Make Noise Shared System is a modern classic modular system, destined to hold a similar place in history as the iconic Buchla Music Easel, Moog Minimoog, and more. One of Tony Rolando's visions of a complete Make Noise instrument, the CV Bus Shared System exploits all the possibilities of analog and digital synthesis in order to form a hybrid instrument with a striking, surprisingly singular sound.
From the Buchla-inspired DPO & Optomix to the Serge-derived Maths and Pressure Points on to the realm of modern DSP with Soundhack/Tom Erbe's Echophon and Morphagene, the CV Bus Shared System provides everything from classic analog FM to straight up Curtis Roads-style granular synthesis. Rene 2018 and Pressure Points offer unique means of user interaction, while clever CV sources such as the Maths and Wogglebug make generative, process-based composition fun and easy to explore.
The 7U Elite case and integrated CV Bus bring sense of unity to the instrument, using a system-wide buffered mult to make CV distribution to critical parts of the system easy without a mess of cables. The Bus provides color-coded visual feedback, making it simple to see what signals are routed where, and additionally includes an external input with beefy preamp and a dedicated headphone/line output, so interfacing with external instruments and recording equipment is quick and easy.
A powerful instrument in its own right with room available to expand, the CV Bus Shared System is a beautiful example of how beautiful, inspirational, and outright fun that modular synths can be.
