The Make Noise 208 HP 7U 4 Zone CV Bus Case is a "ready-to-use" case for your Eurorack system with 1U-utility section.
Actually, the case is just waiting to be "fed" by your inspiration or modules and will give its best to be a reliable partner for studio and stage. Even on the outside, the elegant yet robust powder-coated metal construction knows how to convince and offers excellent mechanical resistance. The removable lid can still be closed even when the system is fully patched.
The design was chosen to match the Make Noise Black & Gold modules, but also looks very appealing with those from other manufacturers.
The Make Noise 4 Zone Power Board represents a new approach to accommodate the growing universe of new, different Eurorack modules. The multi-zone solution is the equivalent of four different busboards in a single busboard package. Here, each of the four zones has its own isolated +12 VDC and -12 VDC power supply along with its own ground return path, while the +5VDC supply is shared equally by all four zones.
The Mult section of the CV bus was originally designed for Alessandro Cortini's (Nine Inch Nails) personal Make-Noise system and provides visual feedback for level, rate and polarity for up to four signals that can be used collectively in a patch. For intuitive access, these 4 CV signals are color coded for fast, clean and immediate patching. Signal distribution is done differently than usual for other mults; since the control signals appear below their possible modulation destinations, shorter patch cables can be used. The color design or visual feedback makes it easier to navigate within complex patches. Usually the CV bus is used to split the most important CV signals, like your master clock.
Besides that, the new version of the CV bus offers other useful highlights: At its left end is the Voltage Math, which is based on a circuit similar to the one from the 0-Coast and contains a small, very useful collection of modular utilities. The two inputs are summed at the output; one at Unity, the other according to the input attenuator. The latter is normalized to DC offset for level shifting or voltage mirroring purposes. Output intensity and polarity are indicated by the green and red LEDs, respectively.
The high-quality stereo line driver matches punchy modular levels to line level. In addition, there are mini-jack inputs (left or mono, right/stereo), master volume control, a stereo output pair, and TRS line headphone out on a single jack. The latter is capable of driving a PA system or headphones (using a cable of appropriate length). It is AC-coupled and has a built-in limiter with visual feedback. It intervenes when patching threatens to become too experimental to prevent damage to the PA system and ears.

Already interested in electronics at the early age of 12, Tony Rolando learned everything about circuits and musical instrument design by himself. He worked for Moog Music for a while and some sabbatical years, he founded Make Noise in 2008 in Asheville, North Carolina. By now, his reinterpretation of the Serge DUSG, Maths, is probably the most ubiquitous module in the eurorack universe ever. Make Noise continues to surprise with new and inspiring modules, including collaborations with Tom Erbe of Soundhack.
