Noise Engineering introduces Alia Oscillator Platform And Return Of Basimilus + Manis

Noise Engineering has introduced Alia, a new oscillator platform for Eurorack synth modules.

Alia follows the precedent of Noise Engineering’s previous platform modules – creating a standard hardware platform that you can load with a variety of firmware. Noise Engineering has brought back Basimilus and Manis, two synth voices, on the Alia platform. In addition, they’ve introduced new synth voice, Debel Iteritas Alia, that offers a hybrid take on phase modulation and additive synthesis.

The company had to retire Basilimus and Manis earlier in the year, along with a couple of other modules, because they were based on a CPU that’s no longer available.

The revamped Basimilus Iteritas Alia and Manis Iteritas Alia have a near identical sound to the originals, according to NE, and a few added features.

When we had to discontinue the BIA and the Manis, quite a few customers reached out asking us to bring them back,” says Markus Cancilla, Noise Engineering’s Chief of Destruction. “The new Alia platform allowed us to bring back our old favorites with a few improvements, and experiment with entirely new concepts, too.”

The platform concept will be a familiar feature to Noise Engineering’s customers. The Versio lineup introduced the idea of swappable firmware to the Noise Engineering ecosystem in 2020, and now has 9 different FX firmwares now available for the platform. Legio followed as a smaller platform in 6HP now with four firmwares.

Alia follows suit, launching with three firmware options, and more planned.  As with the existing Versio and Legio platforms, the firmware can be downloaded by customers, so you can try out any of the firmware options that your module supports.

Debel Iteritas Alia

Debel Iteritas Alia is a new synth voice, based around an additive phase-modulation architecture. Debel uses a few different configurations of four-operator PM, with each operator comprising four oscillators. Traditional FM sounds are easy to create, but can be brought into entirely new territory with the tweak of a parameter or some external CV.

Debel also features Taco, Nacho, and Diablo modes.

Basimilus Iteritas Alia, Manis Iteritas Alia, and Debel Iteritas Alia are available now, in black and silver, priced at $385.
