Eventide has announced availability of Misha, a new type of instrument and sequencer that they say utilizes a unique, interval-based approach to playing and creating melodies. This is their description of it...
Inspired by twelve-tone composition, Misha's sequencer expands upon the tone row technique, allowing for new paths of spontaneous creativity. Modify sequences using some of the classic techniques such as PRIME (forwards), RETRO (backwards), or Inverted playback, or completely rearrange sequences in unpredictable and exciting ways.
Misha comes preloaded with a variety of scales ranging from typical Western scales, microtonal scales, scales that use just intonation, and everything in between. Additionally, two banks of user scales allow users to upload their own scales using the Scala format for further experimentation. Create a simple melody or sequence, change the key and scale, and manipulate the pattern into a whole new creation!
