New Noise Engineering’s Pink Loquelic Iteritas is for the Birds


New Noise Engineering Module is for the Birds.


Noise Engineering has introduced a limited edition  Pink Loquelic Iteritas (less than 100 made) that is literally for the birds.


100% of the proceeds of the special edition of the Loquelic Iteritas will go to parrot conservation, in partnership with the Macaw Recovery Network.


Here’s what they say about it:


“This is the same Loquelic Iteritas you know and love, but with a pinker, glossier panel.


Loquelic Iteritas is a 10HP digital VCO with interpretations of three classic synthesis algorithms (VOSIM, summation synthesis, and phase modulation). It creates a huge variety of sounds parameterized by four tone and two pitch controls and CV control of it all. The sync input hard syncs the two oscillators.”


The limited edition Pink Loquelic Iteritas module is available for $352 from Noise Engineering.

Learn Subtractive Synthesis with the Moog Mavis



In the video, David Hilowitz takes a look at the new Moog Mavis and uses it to introduce the basic concepts of subtractive synthesis.


The concepts covered apply to essentially any vintage analog synthesizer.


Is the Moog Mavis a good synth for learning the basics of synthesis?
