SIMPLE & RADICAL (click for hq image)


DIY noise circuit using the Radical Chip.
The SIMPLE & RADICAL (snr for short) is a suggested build for using the Radical Chip without needing a Mute Synth 4.0. It is a minimal noise circuit that supplies the Radical Chip with power, inputs and outputs. For now, the snr is just a set of instructions, but workshops are coming and kits will hopefully be available to buy here soon.
A PDF with instructions, schematic etc. is available here.

The Radical Chip is a collection of wavetable synth sounds by†Dirty Electronics and Max Wainwright†for the Mute Synth 4.0. There are 5 pseudo-wavetables and 9 algorithms making 45 combinations that are randomly selected. The sounds range from gritty digital sounds and extreme noise to pure tones. The sounds may also be thought of as programs that have complex behaviours that can be interacted with through the Mute Synth 4.0ís controls. The Radical Chip can be simply swapped with the default chip of the Synth.
The Radical Chip comes with a limited edition A2 risograph printed poster/booklet on Microcomputer Music: a music made from mini microprocessors and raw electronics that is always in-flux, noisy and may be overwritten.
