Dust Sifter

The Dunst module generates Dust and Noise by two different methods. Noise is defined as white noise, with a continuous spectrum and a totally non-tonal nature. Dust, however, is better thought of outside Fourier techniques, as little crackles, bursts of noise, pulses of uneven rhythm.

Dust “computes” its randomness by sampling a stochastic waveform to mark an arbitrary voltage, then decays to zero to repeat again. Noting that this is an arbitrary bounds modulation, the bounce of the module is free for control by input voltage, thus varying the speed or concentration of dust particles.

Unlike Dust, Noise uses a zener diode...amplifying the natural noise of indecisive electrons. It modulates crackle by a comparison of that noise and an arbitrary input voltage; near zero, it is pure noise, but crossings of a farther bias voltage become more event-like, approaching the sound of Dust.
