If you are flying to Tokyo as media for a modular fair, you have to make also coverage about small Japanese developers as well. One of these was Quicco Sound, a young company that developed in the past a small and portable WIFI MIDI interface with the name Mi.1 that allows you to connect wirelessly your keyboards to iOS devices.
On this year’s TFoM, the company expanded their product range with a new Eurorack version of their Mi.1. It comes with 8 outputs and with a very interesting iPad application that allows you to send out up to 8 different signals.
The dedicated iOS app includes three main features. On the first page, you have a TB-303 like sequencer with a glide parameter. It features also a TR-808/909 sequencer specially designed for creating drum sequences with Eurorack Synthesizers. Also interesting to see is that the sequencer allows you to create polyrhythmical patterns very quick.
Beside the sequencers, you can also use the Mi.1e module as massive 8x LFO generator. Inside the app, you can not only choose different defined waveforms but also draw you own waveforms for the LFO’s what is for me an amazing feature. On top, you get for each LFO shape different parameters to tweak the wave. Especially these features shows nicely the power of digital modules.
- 8 individual outputs
- iPad application with
- TB-303 like sequencer
- TR-808 /909 like sequencer
- LFO Generator with custom waveforms (store up to 4 custom LFO shapes)
The Quicco Sound mi.1e module will be available in February 2018 for a price of $260 USD.
