Make Noise & soundhack's Mimeophon breaks the boundaries between all types of time-based effects, capable of everything from Karplus-Strong synthesis and flange effects to full-on delay and looping. Following in the footsteps of several of their previous digital modules, it might just make you reconsider what a delay effect is, and how it can be used.
Another collaboration with soundhack's Tom Erbe, the Mimeophon is a synthesis tool based on exploiting the repetition of sonic material. A glance through its features seems to reveal an obvious kinship to the Echophon, Erbe-Verb, and Morphagene. It is a complex and well-considered time-based effect whose potential branches well beyond a simple label such as "delay" or "looper." Mimeophon's scale of operation is uncommonly wide: it can perform temporal processes as short as 1.3ms to as long as 41 seconds, making it just as useful as a flanger, for instance, as it is as a delay.
Complete with voltage control of all parameters (including wet/dry mix), Mimeophon is an inspiring and fresh addition to the Make Noise product line. Despite what might initially seem like overlap with modules like the Echophon, Erbe-Verb, and Morphagene, Mimeophon provides access to completely new ground: diffused echoes, reversed soundscapes, granular transformations, rhythmic repetitions, and lush halos await.
- Stereo multi-zone color audio repeater
- Designed in collaboration with Tom Erbe of Soundhack fame
- Continues the forward-thinking legacy of modules like Phonogene, Echophon, Erbe-Verb, and Morphagene
- Perfect for all sorts of time-based effects from Karplus-Strong to delays, microsound to lengthy loops
- Zone control provides access to nested layers of repeats, acting as a master timescale control
- Rate provides playback speed/Doppler-style "delay rate" control
- Skew for offsetting left and right repeat rates
- micro Rate for subtler Doppler effects
- Flip and Hold for reverse and freeze effects
- Repeats, Halo, and Color interact to create effects that smear in space and change in spectral focus over time
- Gate output derived from Rate control
- Mono or stereo input with stereo output
- CV or Gate control for all parameters
