Noise Engineering - Terci Ruina


Terci Ruina offers three types of distortion in one module, reinterpreted by Noise Engineering. They are connected in series for complete sonic annihilation of any sound, but can also be used independently. Patch in and out at any point for different flavours of distortion.



The first section, FB, is a two-stage asymmetric diode-feedback topology using high-beta bipolar transistors for gain. It ends up being a very nonlinear waveshaper that is sensitive to waveform symmetry. I find a lot of really interesting tones in the middle knob range on this one as the gain ends up controlling where in the waveform the nonlinearities occur.

FF is an asymmetric feed-forward diode clipper using op-amps for gain. This one is a pretty straight-forward diode clip with just enough asymmetry to make it fun. The knob goes from soft clip to heavy overdrive.

FZ is a high-gain bipolar fuzz. The knob blends between differently phased sections which gives the knob a low-pass to high-pass frequency response as it is turned up. The distortion is a bit more subtle on this but the filter allows the user to accentuate it nicely.
