Here are the final products of explorations in zener noise, which is created by a differential network of reverse-biased transistors.

The first is a Tocante instrument, called Zenert. It is inspired by my experience playing tuba for a noh play, Matsukaze, wherein I learned a technique for emulating wind in the pines. Zenert allows you to inject pure noise into an array of twin-t filters, tuned like the rest of Tocante instruments, to the preferred number series of industrial electronic components. It thus offers a palatte of resonant noise sounds, for whispering, whistling, and pining.

The second use is a parallel thrust, but in Eurorack format. Ieaskul F. Mobenthey announces a fifth module, called Dunst. Dunst is short for "Dust and Noise," but in Jagersprache it also means a fine-grained shotgun. It is inspired by Supercollider's Dust opcode, which generates random timing pulses. It does this two ways: with a calculated, arbitrary-bounded ramp wave; and by comparing zener noise against a reference to yield different stochastic distributions.
