I wrote this off listening to the rather uninformative Superbooth demos, but became aware of it again after I heard a demo of it last night, and goddamn. It does sound good. Anyone need a kidney? :lol:

building off of funk's questions, which CV inputs do NOT accept negative voltages? I'm confused that Rate, Zone, and Color have attenuverters but their CV inputs are described as accepting 0-5VDC. and I would be surprised if any CV inputs clamped negative voltages on a new Make Noise design.

donne that:

trigger into Freq shifter into mimeophone:.....with X-tra wiggling on the "mimi" for X-tra demo fun:
first 2-3 bars is the dry signal (mimi set to dry).
https://soundcloud.com/punky-demos/96t-fs_jm7_0



ONLY wiggling with the "mimi".....extra wiggling for X-tra demo Fun ;)
NO additional Reverb. ALL reverb effects is the "mimi".
Has allways a zdsp at the end (reverb used as another resonator, NOT used as a verb)
.....some more modules were used to blow the naked trigger up to "a sound".
for example another FS in the feedback path of the first FS

seems i was wrong.......!
i edited my post.


looking today at this, it looked today all different then at my first testing out attempts..........no clue why.

huh, my confusion is now entirely complete.......
experiencing it again "somewhow" differently. But ok, i think i get it now ;)


since i might have caused confusion would it be good if MN HQ would put some "very clear" explanations down.
(to me the manual is not clear enough on this, since my first impression was based on the manual, and even backed by the manual)

Those numbers represent the total range of the parameter. The CV input is added to the voltage set by the panel control. For example if panel control is set to 3V, you could use CV anywhere from -3V to +2V before clipping it.

Edit: this addition takes place after any input attenuation. So in the above example you could use a +-5V LFO, say, and attenuate it to the desired depth.

got it, thanks!

my only reservation at this point, besides deprecation of silver panels by MN, is that you can't clear the buffer manually. I can see plenty of scenarios where I don't want "what I was doing in zone 1 one bar ago to show up in zone 3", as interesting as that may be when you want to intentionally work with the nested buffers.

hoping for a quick-clear button combo tbh

I say its more than just that. Its not consistent throughout......my last standing :lol:
You might want to consider to go over the manual in that regard and to make this all really clear. In your and our interests.

the module is quite deep, it was quite confusing and time consuming to go over all this CV input behaves.
(while the mimi was patched to make music)


and please add a button combo for buffer erase !

Got some 2hp Drums today and ran them through the mimeophon. Stayed in the first 2 zones while manually wiggling various knobs. Shitty phone audio and I was filming the dum modules not the mimeophon, but was loving the the comb/karplus/feedback effects.

I'm happy to report that the Mimeophon plays nicely in series with other delays. I took Magneto out for my case for... about two weeks, but there's no way I can really live without either.

This is a single MI Stages in harmonic oscillator mode, into QPAS, into Magneto, then into Mimeophon.

Thank you! Everything on this module sounds great. The feedback can generate really nice tones easily.

Hi GGillon,

is this only Mimeophon for the dubchords?

I wish but no. Mimeophon takes care of the bassline, with the modulated rate creating those nice evolving feedback loops. Dub chords are handled more traditionally by pedals: Meris Polymoon for delay and Mercury7 for reverb.

I know I'm late to the party but I can't find it in store anywhere in Europe. Does anyone know a store that still has any?

If you are desperate, foundsound.com.au has them (Australia though)

Thanks. But I'd rather order from a European dealer so I can deduct taxes :)

You won't find it in stock in Europe but most shop will deliver it in a month or less wich is pretty normal for new Make Noise modules at launch

I hope so. :hyper:
Thomann.de mentions 7-8 weeks though. :hmm:

estimated delivery from Musicstore is 11.11.2019. Looks like we Europeans have to wait until then :cry:

Starting with firmware version MP70, the Mimeophon will let us instantly empty the sound out of all Zones by setting Mix and Repeats both fully counterclockwise.
