Watch Celldweller get deep into Morphagene, the tape and microsound music module from Make Noise. This is perfect for manipulating sounds with real "reels". Each reel can be up to 87 seconds and can contain up to 99 slices.
This new video from Celldweller and Vintage King Audio provides a great overview of the module and shows it in action:
Here’s some details from the Make Noise website for the $529 Morphagene:
The Morphagene is a next generation tape and microsound music module that uses Reels, Splices and Genes to create new sounds from those that already exist. Search between the notes to find the unfound sounds.
A few of the Morphagene's most basic uses: Splice recorded audio and jumble it using ORGANIZE. Manipulate playback speed and direction with Vari-Speed. Granularize with Gene-Size and Slide. Layer or Stagger Genes using MORPH. Undertake iterative music processes by recording manipulations and overdubs into new Splices, like having two machines (one for Playback and modulations, one for Record). Process sound in real time using Time Lag Accumulation. Utilize envelope following CV OUT and EOSG Trigger to engage Morphagene in conversation with the rest of your modular system. Stretch and squash sound with Clock input.
