The modules in the Black & Gold Shared System Plus were selected by company founder Tony Rolando.
The new system combines a set of Make Noise modules selected by Tony Rolando, who founded the company in 2008. They're housed in a steel powered case, which is also small enough to take as hand luggage on planes. The system is arranged around the CV Bus, a signal-routing patch bay originally designed for Alessandro Cortini. Apart from distributing colour-coded gate and CV controls throughout the system, the Bus has a 1/4-inch output that sends a line level signal to a soundsystem or soundcard.
The main sound source in the system is a DPO complex oscillator while the new Morphagene module provides voltage-controlled, granular sampling. Make Noise classics like MATHS and Wogglebug supply numerous flavours of modulation in addition to modDemix and Optomix, a West Coast-style dual low-pass gate. The Echophon and Erbe-Verb give space to the system, generating delay, pitch-shifting and reverb. Sequencing, meanwhile, is handled by Pressure Points, René and Tempi.
