DIN Is Noise is a computer program,
Use your mouse and keyboard to make sounds,
Inspired by central-asian bowed string instruments,
The Morin Khuur, the Kobyz, the Erhu, the Kamancheh, the Sarangi,
And the Cello.
An excellent Theremin when you arent playing right ;)
Or play a raga of Indian classical music,
With enough Meend and Gamaks,
To bring your Guru,
On her knees!
OK, it is a sound synthesizer.
Yes, it can accept input from your MIDI keyboard:
Notes, control change, pitch bend and clock sync.
1 for lead voice on the Microtonal Keyboard.
1 for plucked notes on the Keyboard-Keyboard.
1 for the balls of Mondrian.
And 2 for drones.
These arent those flying over you,
These are continous sounding tones,
Place them on any pitch,
As loud as you want,
Watch them freeze,
Watch them rise,
Watch them fall,
Watch them bounce.
The icing though is the Bezier curve,
Used on aircraft, boat and car bodies,
Abused by Luigi Colani,
But in your ableton hands, they sculpt waveforms,
Change timbre on every sculpt,
Proof is the FFT.
So Goodbye Sine, Triangle, Pulse and Saw,
While we install Beziers on Carriers and Modulators,
And when attacks decay,
And decays attack,
Whats ADSR for?
Ableton used 9 lives for Bezier curves ;)
Curve thinks its better, but DIN is the djinn.
And now Batman has returned,
Because signal was on the fan.
