The Organelle M
At the heart of the Organelle's sound engine is a robust computer that runs patches. A patch allows the instrument to take on different forms. Onboard hardware for sound input and output and mappable knobs, keys and buttons enable patches to synthesize, sample, effect, and anything in between!
The Organelle ships with a set of common default patches, and new patches may be loaded from a USB drive. Simply select patches from a continually-growing list, transfer them to a USB drive, reinsert it in the Organelle, and play!
Don't see the exact patch you need? You can create it yourself! Patches may be created and/or edited directly on the device. Plug in a keyboard, mouse and monitor and begin customizing. The Organelle runs patches created in the powerful computer music programming environment Pure Data.
As you create patches or tweak existing ones you can share them with others! The Organelle is built with community interaction in mind. The entire system runs open source software and may be customized at every level.
Announcing four new features for the Organelle!
• Built-in Speaker
• Built-in Microphone
• Battery Power
• MIDI Jacks
We’re also happy to announce it has been upgraded with a faster processor, twice as much RAM, and an improved web interface for patch management and Link sessions.
To differentiate from the older model, we have added an M to the name. For normal everyday reference, 'Organelle' is fine!
Making music with the Organelle is now more direct and adaptable to situation/musician (less gear needed)!
The Organelle is portable and autonomous!
The Organelle is a more powerful instrument that keeps up with your spontaneity or intention!
