HM1986mk2: Dual Linear Feedback Shift Register Battery
Dual-clock LFSR battery with external inputs and mixers. Suitable for the generation of random gates, digital noise, and pitched tones in the same manner as the classic Atari "POKEY" sound chip, with fully editable timbre for each of the eight outputs. The sound configuration is visually represented on a bar graph display, and a rotary encoder facilitates quick editing of each output. The Zorlon Cannon enables efficient exploration of the musical and statistical properties of LFSRs up to 16 bits in length.
You can construct more complex sounds and sequences entirely in-module, by using one half of the module to clock the other. By using the onboard mixer to combine four channels into one, you can achieve dense drones, random CV sequences, or a precisely constructed flavor of digital noise. There are two clock generators each driving four outputs, with each half able to operate independently in several frequency ranges.
Zorlon Cannon mark II features, compared to the original, an external clock input, a stronger internal clock generator with better CV control, and a fully editable and storable output configuration. The functionality of the Qotile Ultimatum mix expander has been added to each half of this edition of the module.
When combined with a Tyme Sefari Mk ][, you may have the most fun you've EVER had with your modular system.
Each output is editable for shift register length and tap configuration, with the state of all 8 outputs storable in one nonvolatile preset. A gate input is provided for re-seeding the shift registers, to cause non-maximal tap configurations to "jump" into otherwise inaccessible sequences.
