Xenosonic Audio Modulator

 

The Xenosonic is an advanced analog interface board which allows one to connect almost any type of monophonic audio source to either a VTTC, SSTC, or DRSSTC. Whether you are a trumpet player, a guitar player, or a keyboardist, you can connect the Xenosonic to your instrument and have your Tesla coil reproduce the audio tones that instrument is playing in real time. In addition, it can also be hooked up to other audio sources such as the sound card output of a computer, a CD player, or even some of the more obscure instruments like a vintage 1950's Theremin. The only restriction being that the source should be monophonic.

Please note that this is an advanced kit, and familiarity with 555 Timers, as well as electronic and troubleshooting skills, are strongly recommended for this kit. Also, the fiber optic option requires construction of a fiber optic receiving interface at the DRSSTC system.

Features:

 

- Adjustable Envelope Gain (How much pulsewidth is varied vs. input volume)
- Adjustable Max. Pulsewidth
- Fiber Optic Interface output (optional)
- Duty Cyle Foldback Limiting (Duty cycle automatically limits as input frequency increases)
- Max. Duty Cycle protection (User programmable)
- 20-Step LED Bar Graph Display (Used to show audio input and setpont feedback)
- Includes standard RCA connectors for input / output audio - BNC connectors available separately
