From the designer of The Black Death, The Dark Interpreter (Towers Open Fire edition) is the ultimate plague-driven, finger sensitive,stand-alone noise processor, granular synthesizer and sound generator, merging digital and analogue processing.
The Dark Interpreter is modeled as a set of leaky, overlapping medieval village spaces within which various plague simulations run, and through which a motley of villagers (grains) wander, steered by electric fingers and touch.
All models of the Dark Interpreter can generate sound or process incoming audio (full size (6.5mm) input and output JACKs). The model (Lachrymarum) presented here samples 16 bit audio at 48 KHz with a sample memory of 1 second (or more depending on speed and settings).
The Dark Interpreter is hand-made and is delivered fully assembled and tested. It features high quality ALPS potentiometers, and a BOSS style 9v power socket (+9v/positive on the outside, negative centre, minimum 300mA). Returns and repairs are accepted within reason.

Oh, and it ships from Berlin, sometimes from London!
We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
Micro_research (Martin Howse and others) is a mobile research platform exploring psychogeophysics and asking the question of where precisely the plague known as software executes. micro_research is active in London, Berlin, and Peenemünde and is funded by workshops, performances, exhibitions and the sales of detektors and noise modules such as the blackdeath and micro-blackdeath devices.
