Blacet 2020 Frequency Divider

“This is a very unusual stand-alone Blacet 2020 Frequency Divider module (discontinued) wired by Nicolas Collins (well-known Hardware Hacker and composer). It has its own power supply. The other items in the video and photos – frequency generator and amp – are NOT part of this auction, but may be offered separately. Collins is the author of Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking. [Normally. modules such as this need a Eurorack and its power supply.] The unit has a 1/4 inch input, but an adapter can be used for 3.55 mm plugs.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Blacet Research Dark Star Chaos Model 2000

“Read the Buyer’s Notice below – BEFORE you bid.

You are looking at a fantastic standalone self-contained noise synth Blacet Research Dark Star Chaos.

It has separate noise output that will give you unique textured noise for processing through another unit. The white/pink noise for wind and surf, a radio telescope, or like an old NASA recording of astronauts on the moon.

The oscillator at the lowest frequency setting give a jittery, misshapen, square wave for triggers or making filters pop/snap. It is a voltage controlled sound generator optimized for producing an unusual variety of noise based sounds.

The module includes a wide range DIGITAL NOISE SOURCE that includes a FILTER that can be used to modulate the frequency of the VCO. The module can be used stand alone or in a complete modular system. The DARK STAR CHAOS includes a voltage controlled digital noise clock that allows the speed of the noise to be finely adjusted from counterclockwise (CCW) “OFF”, 50% “RANDOM STEP” and clockwise (CW) “CW WHITE NOISE”. A voltage controlled Noise Filter controls the NOISE depth that modulates the VCO. In addition a triangle wave low frequency oscillator (LFO) can also be used to modulate the Pulse Width of the VCO. A basic envelope generator (EG) modulates the amplitude of the internal voltage controlled amplifier (VCA).

I built this module from the kit, used and enjoyed it in my studio, and it was working when I put it in storage. Includes a printed manual and new power cable.”
