Make Noise is a regular at Superbooth and yet they didn’t appear in any of the virtual Home Edition coverage last week that I’m aware of. It seems now that they have a special announcement to make this Tuesday.
Last years Superbooth saw the arrival of the Mimeophon Repeater, or “delay module” in the common tongue, and the QPAS filter formally announced at the NAMM before. The year before was all about the Morphagene tape slicer. So Make Noise has a history of introducing consistently interesting and unique modules and they use Superbooth to show them off. So were they just a bit out of the loop this year? Much of the virtual coverage was European but we did see products from places as far afield as Tokyo and Australia.
Anyway, Make Noise has certainly been working on something. Although for all we know they’ve been bought by a venture capitalist who is going to covert their technology over to an iPad app and the announcement is the release of the subscription module. Maybe they’re making a synthesizer or a new form of controller.
The image that’s gone along with the Special Announcement appears to have touch-plate style PCB trails along the lines of their René and Pressure Points modules. This could be a hint at a sequencer or another way of controlling voltage.
In any case, we’ve only got to wait until Tuesday 5th May to find out.
