The Soma Pipe is a cutting-edge mouth-controlled synthesizer and FX processor featuring an array of 12 distinct algorithms, intuitive ergonomic controls, and a top-notch contact microphone enhanced with touch sensors.
The Soma Pipe empowers you to transform your voice into a one-of-a-kind and highly adaptable FX synthesizer. It operates effortlessly, responding to your singing, breathing, or oral sound interaction with the integrated contact microphone. A user-friendly rotary control facilitates the selection of 12 diverse algorithms, from pulsating beats to mesmerizing leads and immersive soundscapes.
These algorithms operate via two virtual resonators meticulously tuned by your chosen algorithm. You'll also have the freedom to adjust the size and decay parameters for the resonators. The impressive lineup of 12 algorithms comprises:
- Bass Drum 1
- Bass Drum 2
- Bass Drum 3
Furthermore, the Soma Pipe boasts an array of controls, including tactile knobs, an activation touch sensor, and three versatile multi-function controls, tailor-made for algorithm-specific adjustments. These controls offer fine-tuned manipulation, enabling you to modulate filters, adjust reverb/delay intensity, and much more. The activation touch sensor allows sound to pass through when engaged, cutting off when released, delivering a level of playability reminiscent of traditional instrument virtuosos. A second touch sensor activates or deactivates FX functions linked to your selected algorithm.
Beyond its innovative capabilities, the Soma Pipe exhibits an eye-catching design reminiscent of classical wind instruments like the saxophone. Encased in a robust all-metal construction, accentuated by dynamic red LED lighting, it captures attention effortlessly. The instrument's ergonomic handles on either side ensure a comfortable grip during use. For connectivity, a breakout box provides XLR connections to seamlessly link the Pipe to a mixer or interface, featuring microphone and jack inputs for external sources. Despite its lightweight design, an M4 thread allows for the attachment of a neck strap, ensuring maximum comfort during live performances.
