Jupiter Storm is a cosmic noise oscillator. It creates sounds that can only be described as out of this world! Where it differs entirely from other pure white noise generators (such as vcNOIZ) is in the algorithm used to produce the sound. Jupiter Storm has a tonal character very much of its own.

Jupiter Storm generates its sound from three square wave oscillators, interacting with one another in a unique algorithm. Some of the sounds possible are reminiscent of the sound of an AM radio being blasted with noise from the cosmos.. This creates noise with significant harmonic content and unique timbres!

With the Noise Core Disruptor engaged, part of the noise core is creatively abused in order to generate insane sonic textures.

Voltage control inputs for all three square waves which energize the noise core are available as well as a CV input that addresses all three oscillators at once. In this way, very dynamic sounds can be achieved with complex modulation routing. For example, you can apply a taste of LFO modulation to all three oscillators, while modulating a select oscillator simultaneously on its own with something more drastic. 

No microcontrollers are present in the design of this analog module.

FEATURES

  • Square wave noise core creates everything from pitched ring modulated textures to hissing and screeching, broken radio tones
  • Noise core square wave VCOs (not v/oct, but close) each have an output so drones can be created simultaneously alongside noise
  • Noise Core Disruptor mode creatively abuses the noise algorithm into unique sounding noise timbres
  • Four noise outputs (I, IV, VII, XI) each with their own unique sound in Noise Core Disruption mode
  • Dedicated input for each oscillator as well as global oscillator CV, for complex modulation
  • Expanding with a Galilean Moons adds percussion-centric features that turn Jupiter Storm into a very capable percussion and sound FX synthesis machine

This module is true to its name. It's a storm of chaos!Review by Mr_Mojo_Risin'
This module can really crank out some crazy noise and random outer space sound effects. This is one of the more interesting noise generators I own and it's definitely a keeper. There are some extremely unique sound effects you can achieve once you start toying with the outputs on the I, IV, VIII and XI Noise Channels. The IC's and other components were inexpensive and easy to source. All IC's are priced less than 0.50 cents/each. Note that for best results, the designer recommends using only Texas Instruments brand IC's for IC2, IC4, IC6, IC7 and IC8. Also, be aware that no additional parts are included for mounting the PCB onto the panel. You're on your own.

The through hole build and off-board wiring was very easy except for a few annoying hurdles with my Version 1.1 PCB:

1) Mounting the crazy oversized PCB onto the panel is an all-afternoon event. If mounted to the panel at a right angle, the depth measures 90mm (about 3 1/2 inches) and it's impossible to fit into some Eurorack cases which are enclosed (ones with a backplate like the PGH Case[90]). I ended up following some suggestions at a Muff Wiggler thread and used some sheet metal bent at right angles to mount it parallel to the panel. However, this still presents a major issue because it overlaps each side of the panel by 11mm (about 1/2 inch). The PCB is much wider than the panel. I'm only able to install it into my case as long as there is a blank space on either side of it -or- if it is installed next to a module which has a _lot_ of clearance on one side (however, no modules like that exist in my rack)

2) Standard sized SPDT mini toggle switches will not fit into the panel holes. I had to drill the panel holes slightly larger before a Tayda SKU: A-4567 would fit

Despite the many hassles needed to mount the PCB onto the panel and then make it fit into a standard Eurorack case, I highly recommend this DIY module. During the mounting and installation phase you will absolutely be cursing it the entire time but hey... I think all modules receive threats and curses during a build. This one will get a double dose of four-letters thrown at it
