Noise Engineering's Terci Ruina is three classic analog distortion circuits in a 4hp Eurorack module. Each distortion may be used independently or in series, allowing a huge array of gnarly, destructive audio effects. Each distortion offers a different response and single variable control, providing countless ways to destroy any incoming signal. Terci Ruina is a fun and simple destination for sonic mayhem.
Terci Ruina Features
Three classic distortions in 4hp
Each section is independent, but normalized for serial configuration
Super gross and dirty-sounding
FB: bipolar transistors for gain and silicon diodes for clipping
FF: op-amp based drive and silicon diode feedforward saturation
Noise Engineering showed us some of their new modules at SynthPlex 2019. This patch uses the Vox Digitalis as a sequencer, Cursus Iteritas Percido as the voice, Sinc Bucina low pass gate and Kith Ruina distortion. Noise Engineering also let us know that all of their modules will start coming with black panels.
Two Noise Engineering Cursus Iteritas Percidos With A Sinc Bucina & Terci Ruina
The Cursus Iteritas Percido is a Cursus Iteritas oscillator with a built in envelope that can modulate the oscillator and a Master Blaster knob that sends the envelope to every parameter at once, resulting in tons of modulation for interesting percussion and synth sounds. The Cursus Iteritas Percido oscillator core generates its own wavetables in real time as well as aliasing which is harmonically related to the pitch of the oscillator. The envelope is an attack/decay envelope with controls for envelope length, shape and slope, this allows you to adjust the envelope without changing its timing, or change its timing without changing its shape.
We also used the Sinc Bucina which is a low-pass gate with built in envelope and adjustable filter depth in only 4hp. Of course we needed some distortion which is provided by the Terci Ruina that is actually three distortions in one!
