My new favourite module manufacturer is Instruo. Just received the Athru wave folder and I'm blown away by how awesome this module is (I also have the Céis EG + Ochd in my rack, Ts-L and Vinca will be added soon). This piece is a short, drony improvisation with Benjolin and Noisewasp (4ms Noise Swash clone) running thru Athru. More details in the video description.
(It was only after recording the video that I noticed that Athru is barely visible - sorry about that. Will do a more demo-like something later.)


Hi Gabor,

It's nice to see you playing with your modular synth. The Athru sounds good indeed, pity, as you mentioned yourself already, that it's not easily to spot in the video; so I can't wait for your next demo :-)

The sound effects are pretty nice too, which sound effect module or pedal did you used for this patch?

Thanks a lot for sharing this and kind regards, Garfield.


Hi Garfield,
Thanks for your feedback. The only fx module in this patch was the Mimeophon. Right now I'm experimenting with sending drums and percussion thru Athru and I am, again, blown away. Will record some more decent footage asap.
Cheers, G


Hi Gabor,

Ah yes... the Mimeophon, that one is on my wish list as well... how do you like it? Is it worth it? Are you happy with the user interface? Is there space for improvement (what?)? I would like to know your opinion on this module.

Thank you very much in advance and kind regards, Garfield.

Edit: Removed typo.


Hey Garfield,
The Mimeophon is my nr 1 fx module (a close 2nd is the Erbe-Verb). This is a very organic-sounding delay and also a reverb, because it has quite nice reverberation capabilities. In some settings the Mimeophon granularish sounds can also be achieved. I like how well the Mimeophon blends with the rest of my setup. Also, every parameter can be CV-modded and thus whole new sounds can be had. It is definitely a keeper. I like the Mimeophon as it is, can’t think of anything that’s missing. All in all, it’s a deep module and I I find it’s also very musical and inspirational. Quite pricey too, but for me it was well worth the $$$.
Cheers, Gabor


I'll chime in to say that I didn't like the Mimeophon at all at first, but it's grown on me a lot. It can subtly change the timbres of instruments in pretty organic sounding ways, or it can turn everything polyphonic and crazy. My main problem is trying not to use it too much.


Hi Gabor and Steve,

Well, thanks a lot for your both feedback on the Mimeophon. Sounds like a pretty good module after your feedback :-) And if one has to get to use to it, okay, it might take a bit more time then but that doesn't mean necessarily that's not a good module, it's rather intriguing if you would ask me.

Ha, ha, your main problem is not to use it too much. Sounds funny but I think I know what you mean, I have that a bit with my effects pedal from Source Audio - Ventris Dual Reverb, I use it so much that I actually could use it a bit less to give other possibilities a chance as well...

Have a nice weekend and kind regards, Garfield.
