Noise Engineering Pura Ruina
The Pura Ruina is the last in the Distortion of the Month series from Noise Engineering. The PR is a three-stage full-wave rectifier and distortion module. PR features four individual stage level controls, each with CV input and individual output. The Universal Sum output is sum these stages.
Pura Ruina’s fully-hyphenated full-wave rectification adds a different flavor of distortion than standard wavefolding or clipping. Rectification is a process where the negative portion of a waveform is folded over upon itself to create a positive-only waveform. This complex and gnarly form of wave shaping adds character and richness to any signal fed into it and is perfect for complementing any system it resides in.
