1979 SMP Overview

Published on Nov 19, 2019 Todd Barton

"My initial encounter and overview with 1979's Stereo Microsound Processor (SMP) based on Mutable Instruments Clouds but styled with added features for the Buchla format. A later episode will have some sound demos.

Update: Note 1979 is the brand, not the year. I created a new site label for them. I believe 1979 is Wes Milholen of Grayscale's brand. You can find a 20Objects interview with him here.

The SMP / STEREO MICROSOUND PROCESSOR is currently priced at $850.

"Granular synthesis for 4U systems. Based on Clouds by Mutable Instruments, the SMP is a realtime granular synthesis processor that expands significantly on the original. Dedicated controls for previously hidden functions, additional CV inputs with inverting attenuators, easier access to preset recall and sampling settings, and increased control over output gain make this one of the most full-featured hardware granular processors available. It's a powerful addition to any Buchla-format system, offering a form of digital signal processing not previously available in this format."
