Misha

(Article originally published 12th May 2022). It’s been a good 5 years since Eventide released their last Eurorack module, the EuroDDL. Misha is completely different and totally unexpected. Eventide is known for its effects, so you could almost count on a Blackhole reverb or TriceraChorus making its way to Eurorack. But Misha is an instrument and sequencer, a creative expression of melody production – where did this come from?

There are not a whole lot of details thus far but there are a number of things we do know. We know that it can be played like a keyboard instrument. It has MIDI and three sets of CV/Gate outputs, indicating the ability to output 3-note chords or 3 separate tracks. It talks about having an interval-based approach which would support the idea of chords and using the CV/Gate outs together. The screen in the middle appears to represent notes, intervals or scales. Apparently, there are over 100 factory scales and room for more.

Oscillations?

There’s talk of outputting waveforms via the audio output from an internal oscillator. I wonder what sort of sound it makes? Is the trailer video using external sound or is it coming from Misha? What we do seem to see is some kind of sequence playing back from a Euclidean-style circle on the screen while someone plays so notes on the buttons.

It’s intriguingly mysterious. It has CV inputs for external triggers and modulation. There are four user-assignable buttons and 18 user presets. The sequencing is tone row-based and there’s a comprehensive control system to manipulate what’s going on.

This one is undoubtedly fascinating. Misha should be available in the summer for $599. Hop down to the Eventide booth Z280 to find out more.
