Eventide’s interval-based Misha instrument/sequencer is here: can it tip the musical balance in your favour?
Following what you might call a soft launch at the SuperboothEventide revealed more about Misha’s unusual interval-based sound Euro rack instrument and sequencer.
This offers a surprisingly different approach to music creation – each key lets you move the selected scale up or down by a specified interval (each key is labeled accordingly).
This method is inspired by the dodecaphonic composition technique (opens in a new tab)which gives equal importance to all twelve notes of a chromatic scale, preventing emphasis on a single note.
Misha is designed to encourage and reward spontaneity, and comes with over 100 factory scales, including western and microtonal options. There is also room for 100 user/custom scales, as well as support for the Scala standard.
A flexible sequencer is also onboard, while MIDI, gate/CV and waveform outputs give you plenty of connectivity flexibility. There are also external control models for MIDI and QWERTY keyboards.
Perhaps the best way to understand what Misha has to offer is to see it in action, which you can do by watching the overview video above. It’s available now for $599.
