Named after the Greek god of dreams, the Morpheus is an aluminum percussion instrument made by the US company Freenotes.
The instrument is modular; the keys can be rearranged in any order you like, as each metal bar is attached to its own tuned resonator.
The aluminium gives Morpheus one of the purest percussion sounds you will hear - add tremolo and it sounds very much like a vibraphone, but with an extra 'glass-like' quality.
The Morpheus instrument page features envelope and filter controls for shaping the sound, as well as Tremolo, Strum and Ensemble modules.
Calder is a generative music device that creates repetitions (loops) that vary in length while a note is held down. You can have one or two loops active, and a loop will be created for every note you hold down.
Playing simple sequences creates constantly moving, shifting patterns & soundscapes.
Chord Mutate will take any input chord and slowly repeat and transform it over time..forever.
Inspired by Triadic Memories by Morton Feldman.
The seminal, the classic.. Soniccouture Jammer. Veteran of many instruments, now in its latest highly developed version.
Jammer works like a normal arpeggiator if you want, or you can set it to randomly evolve the pattern based on parameters you set: note, octave, gaps etc.
A completely user configurable FX chain: choose from 16 different effects in 6 insert slots - in any order you like. The Space processor offers everything from straight rooms and halls to ambient convolution effects.
Morpheus features a range of custom processors, sequencers and generators to create floating musical soundscapes and textures.
The instrument we sampled is two and a half octaves, with the optional 'bass Wing' extension which offers six notes ranging another octave below that of the main unit. The keys are struck with custom mallets, also built by Freenotes, and ring freely afterwards. There is no damping mechanism.
