What is the IMP?

Our INM module is pulled from the Infernal Noise Machine and is designed to bring ethereal voices, growling drones, abrasive and tonal noise to your Eurorack format modular. How does the IMP produce such a wide palette of sounds? We put the oscillator subservient to the noise generator.

The result is then filtered through one of eight frequency ranges, divided into two banks (‘High’ and ‘Low’) of four Domains. Domain Four is lowest in frequency while Domain One is highest. Four is audio, One is nearly ultrasonic. Domain One is where you will find the oddest/most ethereal Noises: static, wind, the impression of voices. Within the domain, there are two key functions: Frequency and range.

Frequency controls the main frequency within the selected Domain – it sweeps over the entire Domain (depending on Range, see following). The Fine control sweeps up to 1/5 of the size of the band that Coarse control does.

Range controls how wide of a sweep Frequency covers. Coarse and Fine control work the same for the Range function as they do for Frequency.
