  1. Exploring Percussive Possibilities: A Deep Dive into the 'beers-noise' Module

    This article delves deep into the 'beers-noise' module, a dual noise source with crude VCAs that offers two distinct flavors of noise for crafting percussion sounds. While one source provides standard transistor white noise, the other delivers a unique mix of 6x 40106 oscillators. The module's inbuilt VCAs serve as level controls, showcasing the versatility of integrating audio input alongside the noise sources. Inspired by circuits from the TR808, the HEX OSC and VCAs offer creative possibilities, although the module isn't designed to emulate 808 sounds. With a compact 4HP design, low power consumption, and a straightforward MIX OUT function, the 'beers-noise' module presents intriguing percussive possibilities for eurorack enthusiasts.
