HM1986: Voltage-controlled Pseudorandom Pulse and Pitched Noise Generator

Zorlon Cannon is two modules in one: pseudorandom gate generator and "pitched noise" generator (like Atari 2600, 5200, etc.)

Upper Section: Pseudorandom Pulse Generator

The upper section of the Zorlon Cannon operates upon the same principles as the lower section albeit at a much lower rate. Each of the outputs generates a 12 volt gate signal at a pseudorandom interval, with each output offering a different sequence length. In addition to voltage control of the update period, you may adjust the tap configuration for a different repeating sequence of gates.

Lower Section: Pitched Noise Generator

The lower section generates four flavors of pitched noise with tap configurations similar to classic Atari sound devices. Each output has an alternate mode switch for a total of 8 possible sounds.

Expander: Qotile Ultimatum

Try mixing the gate signals together to make a complex control voltage! This capability is available as the expander module Qotile Ultimatum.


Nine outputs: Clock output, 4x random gate outputs , 4x pitched noise outputs (4, 5, 17, and 9 bit sequences).
Gate outputs: 1 == 12V, 0 == 0V.
Manual and Voltage controlled master clock frequency (for each section) and tap configuration.
Toggle switches for different combinations/divisions of pitched noise.
