Patching Panda - N.V.H.S


The N.V.H.S. (Noise, Vibration & Harshness Synthesis) from Patching Panda is an extensive drum synth voice. It consists of an audio input stage, an 808-based noise generator, a multimode filter with low-pass and band-pass modes as well as a VCA plus decay envelope. – A great setup for creating a vast palette of percussive sounds. From hi-hats to deep kicks, this module will shine with its flexibility.



The N.V.H.S. is a drum synth voice.

As audio source there is an inbuilt 808-inspired noise generator and an external input. Both provide a gain amount potentiometer.

For shaping the sound, the module features a 2-pole multimode filter, with a slope steepness of -12dB. Using the LP/BP switch you can change the filter type from low-pass to band-pass. The cutoff frequency is set manually by the Freq knob. Thanks to the CV Freq input it can be voltage controlled. The filter resonance is determined by the Res potentiometer.

A fast VCA with integrated decay envelope is available, to create percussive sounds. The envelope is launched by a trigger or gate at the trigger input labelled with an explosion graphic. Sending triggers with different voltage gain will produce a velocity effect.

The amount of decay is set with a potentiometer and can also be voltage controlled thanks to the according CV input. The decay can be changed from soft to more aggressive logarithmic response using the curve potentiometer.
