Mimeophon

Mimeophon is unquestionably my preferred module in my rack. It’s not a standard delay, it’s a ‘stereo multi-zone color repeater’. So what’s the difference? Mimeophon works with 8 zones, where each zone captures your performance in a different time domain, and all zones affect each other. You can flange a sound or create complex modulated chorus effects, delays, echoes, and ever-evolving loops in a sliding window of 42 seconds. In this ‘long repeat’ you can layer sounds and loop patterns while keeping a relationship with a master clock.

You may have seen lots of videos about the Mimeophon already, but this one is about the Mime in its comfort zone, the Shared System and the Tape & Microsound Music Machine. But it will do wonders in your own case too.

Mimeophon is coded by Tom Erbe, who also did the Erbe-Verb and Echophon. If you’d need to compare Mimeophon to the older Echophon, I’d say the Mime is a fancy digital delay designer and the Echophon is a vintage tape echo with a feedback loop. So you could run the feedback loop through the Mime and back into the Echophon. That would be a fun experiment!

MakeNoise Mysteron eight years later

Today I also uploaded a new Rings into Clouds video to create another magical forest. But I can imagine you’re not into that, and prefer a darker ambient setting. So in tandem, I created this Mysteron video, which was introduced a year before Rings came out. Both Rings and Mysteron use roughly the same technique of striking a delay line. With Rings, the delay is filtered and shaped into beautiful sounds. With Mysteron, the delay sounds like a raw heavy metal feast. A lot has changed since Mysteron came out, there are many new effect modules that can make it sound totally 2021.

The Mysteron is a discontinued module but you may be able to find one 2nd hand (hopefully fair priced). I’ve included a link to a shared system tutorial where I tried to do Karplus Strong Synthesis with the Echophon delay.
