Now introducing the System Sound version 2.0 with some minor tweaks and improvements.
Believe it or not, this is less noisy, and has less distortion. I’ve also tweaked some things in more subtle ways, setting the gain levels to better match each other and not clip so easily. But don’t worry, it will still distort the hell out of things and oscillate in a heartbeat.
System Sound is a feedback noise device for experimental music, sound design, sound art and more.
In essence, System Sound is a two channel mixer, with a microphone, digital oscillator (sine/noise), two tilt equalisers and a power amp. Simple standard circuits are connected in a clever way to enable many kinds of drones, noises, pulsations and chaotic messes even without anything plugged in.
Instantly achieve the sound of a cheap and horrible mixer feeding back, with zero patching! Add the microphone to make things even less stable. Add noise to make things noisier, or the oscillator to sort things out (sort of). Use it to mangle drum loops, guitars, or any other sounds. Or gently saturate the oscillator, send it to your favourite modulation effect and zone out making drones with a touch of feedback to spice things up. Use a speaker to resonate your environment, find hidden resonances in everyday objects using noise or the sine wav. Attach it onto a wall or a piece of plywood with the four mounting holes for more stability.
Create your own feedback system sound system.
