Soma Labs Introduces the Metaconformer


The ever inspired, creative sound wizards Soma Lab, have a new take on the MIDI router. It's called The Metaconformer:

Metaconformer is a modular MIDI processor designed to expand the capabilities of musical instruments and to simplify the interaction between a musician and their MIDI instruments. It offers new ways of playing music through innovative and groundbreaking MIDI message routing capabilities between multiple instruments.

The MIDI protocol is an efficient engineering solution used reliably for decades by musicians. However, in many situations it does not take into account the musical context, which is essential for the artist. Metaconformer changes this. Located between the MIDI controller and your instruments, it coordinates human ideas with the language of hardware.

Metaconformer's capabilities provide new ways of playing instruments, by combining MIDI instruments and exploring their interaction . You will be able to play multiple instruments at the same time as if they were part of one larger instrument. Metaconformer also opens up the possibility of sound control through pressing the keys on your MIDI keyboard, instead of having to reach for the knobs on your gear. This will allow you to discover and unlock new facets and possibilities of your favorite instruments!

The transformation of MIDI note data into control changes is definitely an interesting idea, allowing you to for instance, musically play an envelope's attack rate or perhaps the delay time of a MIDI effects pedal.

Such routing is probably familiar to musicians who gotten to the deepest levels of their DAW's menu system, but it's cool to see it in usable, tangible hardware. I just wish it had DIN MIDI! Here's a Youtube demo:
