Make Noise Mimeophon

Published on Aug 14, 2019 MAKEN0ISE

Update: 2nd interview with Tom Erbe and Walker Farrell video added below.

"The Mimeophon music synthesizer module is a stereo, multi-zone color audio repeater by Make Noise and soundhack, coded by Tom Erbe.

The Mimeophon (from Greek mimeo (repeat/copy) and phon (sound)) is a modern take on various historical sound copying, echo and repeating devices. It allows for Stereo modulations of Time, Space and Timbre of Mono or Stereo sound sources. The Mimeophon is capable of modulating and morphing time scales of repeated sound from micro-sound to note to phrase length while also coloring and spatializing the repeats.

- Full Stereo In and Out
- Color Coded Modeless Algorithm: morph between Karplus, Flange, Chorus, Echo, Looping and everything in between
- Rate continuously controls Repeats frequency within Zones
- Skew lets Rate control Repeats differently for Left and Right channels
- ╬╝Rate offers dedicated Doppler Modulation
- Tempo Sync for Doppler Free modulation of Rate, create complex repeat patterns
- Control number of Repeats up to and beyond Infinite
- Halo smears Repeats in stereo space
- Color focuses feedback energy for timbral shifts over time
- Rate Out generates Pulses at Skewed Tempos, completing the conversation within the modular system
- Zones may be Flipped for backward repeats
- Hold sound for non-destructive modulation of infinite loops
- Fully Voltage Controlled Time, Space and Color modulation algorithm
- Reasonable power consumption
- Pairs well with Morphagene, QPAS, and X-PAN

MSRP: $399
Width: 16hp

Mimeophon Development: a conversation with Tom Erbe and Walker Farrell

Published on Aug 14, 2019 MAKEN0ISE

"As we were wrapping up development of the Mimeophon, Tom Erbe stopped by our shop to discuss his inspirations behind the module with Make Noise's Instrument Specialist Walker Farrell.

Tom Erbe (of Soundhack) has worked with us on several modules, including the Echophon, tELHARMONIC, Erbe-Verb and Morphagene. Our latest collaboration, the Mimeophon, is a stereo, multi-zone color audio repeater, and is a modern take on various historical sound copying, echo and repeating devices."
