The DIRTY ECHO DRONE BLENDER is a complex dronescape generator, housed in a found code-lock box made from black powder coated heavy duty aluminum with a painted black plastique face plate made from a repurposed advertisement sign. On the bottom is a dried and pressed root sealed under silver aluminum tape and the original bottom plate has a dull gold tone. It is based on a 4 wide-range oscillator synth engine, with 2 oscillator pairs. Each oscillator pair has a dedicated LEVEL control and each oscillator has its own FINE and COARSE tuning control. From there the signal runs into the ECHOBLENDER, a experimental DELAY, based on a modified circuit by CASPER ELECTRONICS. The DELAY has a dedicated DRY and WET volume control, which allows a more complex sound shaping than the usual MIX controls. The WET signal has a fixed LOW PASS filter and the DRY is a buffered signal with the HIGH FREQUENCIES slightly boosted. The delay TIME has a FINE and COARSE control. With the COARSE TIME at about noon, the delay chip exceeds it’s capacity and becomes increasingly noisy, which provides an extra layer of dirt and grit to the sound. When the FEEDBACK, which is highly interactive with the REPEATS is raised this DELAY creates massive DISTORTION and the TIME controls become something like SHAPE controls for the DISTORTION. With the REPEATS fully opened SELF OSCILLATION occurs, even more so when the FEEDBACK is also engaged. The before mentioned LEVEL controls of the oscillator pairs can run the delay into CLIPPING (overdrive) on their own, but the delay sections CLIPPING LED also clips the delay feedback to avoid excessive ‘shrieking’ and too harsh VOLUME peaks, like many delays of this kind often have. An external input allows to send a signal that mixes (or not, when the LEVELS are set to zero) with the DRONES into the delay/distortion section. Handmade by GRM for METSÄÄN.
