Eventide Misha Review

Review: Eventide Misha – an entirely original improvisation and generative sequencing module

Misha from Eventide is an entirely different and original way of performing and composing music, and is also a different kind of generative sequencer. With most instruments or controllers, pressing a key plays the same note every time. With Misha, you use the keys to decide where you want a melody to go, as opposed to which specific notes to play. This is particularly useful when exploring the dozens of scales available on the module.

Misha is a Eurorack module, though it can send and receive MIDI, so you can use it outside the context of a Eurorack system, and it can totally transform how a MIDI keyboard behaves if you connect one to it.

In this video I take an in-depth look at Misha and discuss some pros and cons, both of the module and this way of making music:
