Manis Iteritas (Black)

New Manis Iteritas (Black)



Noise Engineering Manis Iteritas


The Noise Engineering Manis Iteritas is a 10hp voice based on the architecture of the Basimilus Iteritas, but designed to be more gritty and aggressive. It accomplishes this by using only sawtooth waves that are manipulated, modulated and distorted through a rethought interface. Manis Iteritas is suitable for leads, bass lines, drums, darkness, detuned madness or pure mayhem.


Interface


•           Pitch - The Pitch encoder knob and CV input adjusts the pitch of the fundamental oscillator. Default is fine mode: steps are sub-perception so Manis Iteritas is difficult to bump out of tune. Push and turn for coarse adjustment: each step is a semitone. CV input is a 1V / 8VA standard input. The knob sums with the CV input

•           LPF - The low-pass filter tracks pitch; fully anti-clockwise only very low frequencies pass through. Turn fully clockwise to disable. Manis Iteritas uses two 2-pole non-resonant filters

•           Envelope - A simple Attack / Decay envelope control that shapes the amplitude of the signal. Fully anti-clockwise, the signal is a short pop. As the knob is turned clockwise, the decay increases. At about two o'clock the attack time will increase slightly as well. When fully clockwise, the envelope no longer affects the amplitude (free-running mode). In this mode, a trigger in or manual trigger will hard-reset the oscillator

•           Saw Mod - Sounds similar to pulse width modulation or sync mod. The operation performed is frac((2*s+1)*x) where 's' is the knob + jack and 'x' is the current oscillator amplitude

•           Profundity - As the Profundity knob is turned clockwise,1. Manis Iteritas adds additional, out-of-phase oscillators for a chorus effect; and 2. Manis Iteritas detunes the voice. This is achieved by randomly modulating the sample rate, which results in the perceived pitch becoming blurry

•           Smash - A gnarly wave-folder replacement, Smash is a modulus-function wave destroyer. The knob sets the level of destruction

•           Bash - Routes the envelope to Smash, Profundity and LPF. This knob acts as an attenuverter where 12:00 is off, right of centre is positive send, left of centre is a negative send

•           Mode: S / L / M - Selects the mode: S (left): six oscillator additive. L (middle): six oscillator additive with pitch envelope. M (right): two 3-operator phase-modulated oscillators

•           Range: B / A / T - The range switch sets the lowest note. Each position is two octaves above it's left neighbour (Bass, Alto and Treble)

•           Trig - Triggers the start of the sound. It responds to the rising edge of a trigger and has a threshold of around 3V

•           Hit - Momentary switch to manually trigger Manis Iteritas

•           Out - The out is a low-impedance audio source. The output varies based on parameters as Manis Iteritas compensates for loudness

•           CV Inputs - All parameters are CV-able. Knobs act as offsets unless sated otherwise. Manis Iteritas expects an incoming voltage of 0-5V for non-pitch parameters and 0-8V for pitch
