Meng Qi Wing Pinger

"Your link to organic analog texture, rhythm, noise and melodies.
Travels between chaotic and tonal passages as fast as your emotions shift.
It encourages fine playing gestures and rewards practicing.

Wing Pinger is an analog musical instrument, centered around a pair of 4-pole resonate low pass filters.
Surrounded by a network of comparators, pulse converters, binary counters and shift registers.
Despite the absence of oscillators, it's fully capable, and actually designed to generate sound on its own."

Yes it sounds really cool
Also the wedge reverb on hainbach video is super cool with this synth.
If the wing pinger is less then 300 pounds I might buy one

Damn it's a lovely instrument.
Would buy this too if it was around 300-400$
Love how chaotic it can be. I would love to pair this with the jomox t-res

Really lovely. I like that it's almost some kind of tuneable blippoo. I think I'll get one even if it's costly.

It's pretty too! :love:

At first glance, it looks very... Dutch.

The sounds are totally different.

I don't think we even have a hint currently, unless I missed something.

I have a feeling it'll be costly but not crazy high but really I have no idea

The device reminds me of something like a Benjolin but different.

I have no bananas :ripbanana: :sad:

Haven't seen any news on this in awhile, and I couldn't find the Meng Qi shop on Etsy. Does he still have a shop there? Hope he's weathering all the coronavirus hoopla okay. I recently picked up one of his hand modules and liked it so much I ordered a second one. :goo:

Ditto.
The creative process is hard to predict under the best circumstances and even in a normal year things are slow this time of year due to Chinese holidays. Kind of randomly looking for a clue today (Feb 7) I see the PCBWay web site says...
"Dear Customer,
Due to the domestic epidemic situation, the production at our factory will be postponed to February 10th. All online services on our website, such as online quote, file review and customer service are available as usual."

Not much of a hit actually.

Interested BIG TIME. Can’t wait for further updates!

Around 27 minutes into the video above.. shit.
The WP going through the resonator.. unreal sounds. So pumped on this.

Audio in mods look sweet. This machine ooozes soundscapes as heard in the demo. Might be a pricey haul with the keys onboard. Glad to see basic midi addressed.

Am I the only one who thinks the look of prototype and the whole concept was more straightforward and interesting than this new solution with keyboard and midi and more complications? As a user of Original Hordijk Blippoo, I really like the simple idea of just playing with big knobs and sculpting some new rhythmic forms out of chaotic noise. I was hoping for the same experience and slightly different "eastern" sonic qualities.

Anyway, nice to see the progress on this let's wait for more details and better video and audio demonstration.

The works of Meng Qi are always quite special and nice.

I was also more interested before the keyboard, largely due to size constraints in my setup, but also because of simplicity. But I also agree that this will be an incredible instrument even if it’s not the right fit for me. I’ve always loved Meng Qi’s creations and I’m excited to see a complete instrument from him. I hope there are many more.
