Noise Engineering tells us that Pura Ruina is a three-stage CV-controlled fully-hyphenated full-wave rectifier/distortion designed for audio. They say that simple waveforms can be manipulated into completely new and exciting tones, and already-complex sounds can be shredded into sonic oblivion.
A spokesperson told us, "Add some CV and you’ll never want to let PR out of your rack! Each stage has an individual level control with corresponding CV and individual out, as well as feeding to the universal Sum output. PR’s rectification creates a unique flavor of distortion unlike standard wavefolding or clipping. The possibilities are virtually endless: add to a west-coast style complex oscillator setup for unique timbral shaping, annihilate a percussion mix through it, run its individual outs through other Ruina modules for further mayhem. You’ll never run out of awesome things to try, we promise. You know you want one."
