All You Need To Know About Wingie2

US Stereo resonator with on-board mic and more      04/04/22

The Wingie2 is a new portable stereo resonator made by Meng Qi which features on board microphones, line in and MIDI inputs. In this video the make goes over the device, explaining how and why he made it with some sonic examples. It seems like a highly expressive unit, with a variety of methods for interaction. 

Wingie2 features: 

  • Stereo resonator
  • Process incoming signals via the on-board microphones or line-level input (3.5mm TRS)
  • Individual stereo channel processing for octave switching and mode selection (bar, string, special, and poly)
  • Fader controls include output volume, decay of resonance, and mix control
  • On-board dual-keyboard for controlling the resonator's pitch and harmony
  • 3.5mm TRS MIDI input for external pitch control and sequencing
  • USB-C functionality and power


A couple of excellent videos have emerged with the Wingie 2, here we have Robin Rimbaud-Scanner during his first play:
