At Superbooth 19, Make Noise has introduced three new Eurorack modules: Sound Hack Mimeophon, X-Pan, and XOH. Sound Hack Mimeophon is the latest collaboration with Tom Erb and is a multi-zone colored audio repeater with three main elements: repeats, halo, and color. It can be described also a new stereo delay module with advanced control options. All three elements work together and form the sound of the Mimeophon.
Interesting is here the Zone concept with which you can change the delay time without traditional doppler pitch shifting effects. Another highlight is the depth of the engine. It can create flanger/chorus effects but also long delays/reverbs or even granular style sounds.
Second new Make Noise announcement for Superbooth 19 is the X-PAN, a new 5-channel 10hp voltage-controlled stereo mixer with low and high headroom specially designed for complex panoramic audio imagery.
X-PAN is highly responsive to control signals allowing for exploration of the fluctuating stereo sidebands possible with Audio Rate Crossfading and Panning. X-PAN is Direct coupled for use as a CV Processing and Routing toolbox.
X-PAN consists of two full-featured Channels and one simpler Channel. The top two Channels each have voltage controlled cross-fading and panning while the third Channel is a stereo aux input with stereo VCA. All three Channels are combined together at the stereo SUM outputs.
- 5 signal inputs all routed to a dynamic stereo output
- contains 10 high-quality VCA circuits in just 10hp
- full voltage-controlled panning, cross-fading, and mixing
- easy to maintain signal integrity with high headroom, low noise circuitry
- audio rate crossfading and panning, fluctuating stereo sidebands
- aux stereo inputs controlled by stereo VCA with combo pot
- part of a decentralized mix console integrated throughout the system along with Optomix, modDemix, Dynamix, and RxMx
- direct coupled for use as complex CV router
- pairs well with QPAS and Morphagene
Third Make Noise module for Superbooth 19 is the XOH, a new stereo output module.
