The Soma Metaconformer is a smart MIDI router and Thru box, designed to revolutionise how musicians and producers interact with their equipment. Boasting two independent MIDI inputs and four outputs, it offers unparalleled flexibility and connectivity for various musical setups. One of its outputs is uniquely adaptable as a sync signal source, enhancing the versatility of your music production environment.
This innovative device shines with its three distinct modes of MIDI message processing:
Splitter Mode: This mode allows for dividing a single MIDI channel keyboard into multiple zones, each controlling a different instrument. It lets you play various instruments simultaneously, fostering an environment where you can blend and experiment with different timbres without switching between MIDI channels.
Combiner Mode: Here, you can merge several monophonic instruments into one multitimbral polyphonic instrument. This mode mirrors the functionality of a polyphonic synthesizer's voice activation but allows for varied timbres. It opens new creative pathways for constructing unique harmonies and rhythms.
Translator Mode: Elevate your sound design with this mode, where each played note is converted into a corresponding CC message, enabling dynamic control over desired sound parameters. Particularly effective with granular delays, resonant filters, and paraphonic oscillators, this mode offers a more interactive and intuitive approach than traditional knob-based controls.
The Soma Metaconformer is more than just a piece of equipment; it's a catalyst for musical innovation. Whether crafting music in the studio, performing live, or exploring new sound designs, this tool is a vital addition to your arsenal. With the Soma Metaconformer, step into a world of enhanced musical creativity and expression.
