Noise Engineering Mimetic Digitalis

Post by uniquepersonno2 » Fri Nov 24, 2017 12:41 am

Sorry if there's a topic about this already, but I couldn't find one and this is the first I've seen of this module. Screenshot from the video NE uploaded today, do we know anything about this?

There's a tantalizing mention of it here:

I think it's almost released, isn't it? There's a page on their site for it: https://www.noiseengineering.us/shop/mimetic-digitalis

I preordered MD and Muta Jovis, and have been told they're shipping in April.

May 1 is close enough to April that I can't really complain :)

That link's broken, should be https://www.noiseengineering.us/s/MD_manual.pdf


Seems pretty straightforward, just like I'd expect from the front panel (aside from Burn being renamed Undo, which makes more sense; burn makes me think of recording onto CDs).

Yea, I am looking at it as possibly a smaller hp, 4 channel replacement for my Voltage Block, so I am happy to see that it seems fairly simply configured and easy to use. Most NE modules have been really easy to parse, but the more functions packed into 10hp the more I want to see a manual before I commit.

I have a Mimetic Sequent on the way, but didn't know about this guy. Does the Digitalis largely cover the functionality in the Sequent, just with a different method for inputing values? Or am I missing some clever way that having both interacting with each other would be interesting?

Other than the name and the fact that they emit CV I don't think they're really comparable.

Let me say it differently. They are both sequencers of a sort. I'm not as interested in them being interchangeable, but more whether they can "collaborate" in interesting ways. That was unclear in my previous post.

The Mimetic Sequent lets me program CV sequences via a CV input, rather than an encoder/panel interface. It's also 1-dimensional (unless you count the 3 available patterns as a 'Y axis'). Randomization is also controlled via CV.

The Mimetic Digitalis seems more oriented toward editing and manipulating via the physical interface, which is interesting in a different way.

After writing that down, I tend to agree they are two different beasts. That said, I think an Digitalis --> Sequent flow could provide some pretty interesting results. I was previously more thinking about the opposite.

Oh that makes more sense. I do think you could get some worthwhile interactions both ways between the two, and they would also be valuable used separately in the same system/patch

How does this compare to the Voltage Block from Malekko? Seem very similar. HP-wise MD wins.

haven't had my hands on one, but pretty dissimilar i believe? more akin to a streamlined Cartesian Sequencer, like the Rene?

Mimetic Digitalis looks like a sequential switch with the ability to save routing presets.

Okay that video helps explain. I was on my phone and thought I saw more inputs, that led me to believe Sequential Switch.

Looks cool, lots of cv out out of one relatively small module.

SPIFFY TINY SEQUENCER TIMES!

i mean.... like how anything is a sex toy if you're brave enough.... really... isn't anything a sequential switch if you're brave enough?
