Mystic Circuits has a module that will transform your poor attempts at dance music into fresh and exciting rhythms. IDUM, where have you been all my life?



Making complex electronic music can be hard. It often involves huge rigs of logic obsessed modular to generate the pleasing rhythms that will drive people wild. We don’t all have the brain for that and so Mystic Circuits have created IDUM which, they said, puts making IDM “into the hands of people with average intelligence”. Well, that’s me sorted then.

IDUM is a gate processor. It takes gates and effortlessly turns them into Intelligent Dance Music (IDM). So you input your boring sequences into one end and out the other comes fabulously complex and emotive patterns of chaos and mayhem. It’s like an effects processor for gates; just dial it in and let it go.

There are 8 modes to play with that give radically different outcomes. Hold deals with the gate length, Burst generates ratchets, Multiply/Divide alters time, Ball bounces, Rotate scrambles, Delay postpones the inevitable, Break creates beats and Skip does some time travelling. You have control over the probability of things happening and how long it might last as well as things like depth, time, snazzle and such like depending on the mode. All of it is internally loopable so you can pick up an idea and work it to death.

Apparently, it’s all about clock manipulation and IDUM has a unique ability to mess about with the nature of time. This includes bringing us back up to speed through the abusive use of clock bursts.

This looks deliciously nuts and sounds like it could take you to the next level or leave you bleeding on the floor. Mystic Circuits says:

IDUM might be the stupidest way to make IDM and we at Mystic Circuits are proud of that. Whether you want to add complexity to your dancefloor bangers or make the most obtuse and unlistenable music imaginable, IDUM is here to help. See just how dumb your music can get with the Mystic Circuits IDUM.

IDUM is available now for $295.
