“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 2300 Final Filtre. Very unusual multi-mode VCF with an internal LFO / A/D envelope. 2 frac units in width. Tested, working exactly as it should. Cosmetically in very good condition with a small amount of rack rash. This module was factory built. Ships with power cable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“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.”
