Morphagene can record “reels” with a length of up to 87 seconds. It creates WAV files (32 Bit / 48 kHz), a Micro SD Card is used to store and recall data. Besides sampling, it is also possible to load material from a computer into the module. For processing sound, a broad range of nifty features is available. The Organize section cuts reels into up to 99 pieces and rearranges them. Vari-Speed allows the user to adjust playback speed and direction. At most, samples can be pitched twelve semitones upward or 26 semitones downward. Gene-Size and Slide make it possible to granularize sounds. Morph is specialized in layering and staggering audio material. All parameters feature not only potentiometers, but CV inputs as well. Some of them come equipped with bipolar attenuators. By employing the clock connector, users can stretch or squash sound. An envelope follower with CV output and an EOSG trigger socket allows the Morphagene to engage in conversation with other modules.
Recording and playback are handled separately, like having two tape machines. Therefore, overdubs and such are not a problem for the module.
Morphagene is usable for processing mono as well as stereo material. A blank Micro SD Card is included.
The alternative firmware MG203 includes the following features and can be downloaded HERE.
-Morph Chord Ratios (allows you to create chord scales for the Morph parameter)
-auto-level has been significantly improved and simplified (there are now 4 gain levels to choose from)
-Signal to Noise Ratio was improved
