The Harvestman - A Sound of Thunder mkII
Availability: Can be ordered upon request
The Harvestman - A Sound of Thunder mkII is an expansion module for the Tyme Sefari 2 which is an audio recorder and a delay in one module with plenty of possibilities for a tonally unique granular synthesis engine on board as well. There is truly a lot to do with the input signal in a really clear quality.
The Harvestman - A Sound of Thunder mkII makes it possible to use the Tyme Sefari Mk2 in stereo by adding second audio input and output sockets. The input level for the right channel can be adjusted separately.
Different functions can be activated by eight toggle switches and according gate inputs (0/5V):
The four FORMAT switches change the Tyme Sefari´s recording audio format from the standard 16Bit to other formats, infuencing the playback speed. 12Bit linear has a slightly lower quality. the other formats double the recording time: 12Bit logarithmic compresses the signal into one single byte and 8Bit emulates the behaviour of the old Tyme Sefari. PITCH activates a raw pitch shifter effect: the playback runs with half of the speed of the recording and can be adjusted with the big frequency knob. When feedback is activated interesting "crystal" sounds causing the pitch of the delayed audio signal to endlessly travel in one direction
STEREO activates the stereo mode
BEND stands for circuit bending. It will skew the internal data and address busses of the tyme sefari in unpredictable ways and generate digital distortion and much more.
