Noise Engineering Manis Iteritas
Manis Iteritas is a 10HP voice based on the architecture of Basimilus Iteritas, but designed to be more gritty and aggressive. It accomplishes this by using only sawtooth waves that are manipulated, modulated, and distorted through a rethought interface. Manis is suitable for leads, bass lines, drums, darkness, detuned madness, or pure mayhem.
At first glance is very similar to the basimilus. In Skin and Liquid mode there are six oscillator/envelope pairs that are added together. In Metal mode there are phase modulated oscillator/envelope chains. Metal mode differs in Manis Iteritas by having two sets of three sequentially modulated oscillators rather that one set of six. Metal mode also waveshapes the output of the oscillators by summing two sawtooths of the same frequency to give a waveform somewhere between a sawtooth and a square.
