Casper Electronics Novadrone - Six Oscillator Drone Audio and Video Synthesizer

$ 100.00


Carefully hand built and in perfect condition and working order!


The NovaDrone was designed (and continues to evolve) in collaboration with experimental musician and epic visionary G. Lucas Crane aka Nonhorse and with support from Perte De Signal in Montreal.

The Nova Drones offers 12 potentiometers, 10 switches, 6 oscillators, 9 oscillator sync inputs, 6 frequency modulation inputs and an epic 15 voltage outputs as well as 3 high current outputs for controlling external LEDs. All of the ins and outs have been routed to a prototyping breadboard at the bottom of the unit which allows for liberal experimentation and development of custom circuits. The prototyping area is especially useful for syncing the oscillators of 2 or more Nova Drones together.

The NovaDrone offers 3 channels of sound and light. Each channel has the following features:
ADJUSTABLE CONTROLS
-volume
-TONE pitch coarse tune 24Hz to 750Hz
-TONE pitch fine tune
-LFO rate .008 Hz (around 1 cycle every 2 minutes) to 750Hz
SWITCHES
-sync 1
-sync 2
INPUTS
– ext sync 3
-PITCH modulation
-LFO rate modulation
OUTPUTS
-TONE square wave
