Hello again!

The Infernal Noise Machine Kickstarter has finally ended. The goal was not met, but there were enough backers willing to change their pledges to orders so we can go ahead and make them anyway. We had hoped to get enough backers to have some production model units built for stock, but that’s OK. The Limited Edition units were the main focus. Kickstarter was an interesting experience and we’ll probably use it again in the future with the same intent of building the module regardless. It’s a good platform and could be a lot of fun if done the right way. Thanks again to everyone for joining in!

There was enough time during the campaign to get the final details worked out on the eurorack INM and we are now starting the Limited Edition production run. There are only 13 of the LE units left and this is the only time they will be built, so grab one while you can! The INM-Exp expander module is being built as well. More information on both available on the Kickstarter page.  (I’ll get the pages up on the website as soon as I can.)

Pre-order pricing:

INM-E:             $777.00 + shipping

INM-Exp:         $80.00 + shipping

 

After production, prices go to MSRP:

INM-E:             $949.00 + shipping

INM-Exp:         $125.00 + shipping

 

Desktop & 5U Infernal Noise Machine

Development of the Desktop and 5U Infernal Noise Machine resumes after INM-E production ends. You can follow updates and discussions of the INM-D in the thread at Muff’s.

 

Best wishes to everyone, take care!

Desktop INM status

We’ve received a few inquiries about the desktop INM:

The original desktop Infernal Noise Machine is discontinued, but a new one based on the upgraded and expanded INM-E module is in the works. A 5U version is also planned.

We’re busy with the INM-E Kickstarter right now, but work on the desktop and 5U variants will resume afterward. Announcements will be posted here, twitter, and in the f(h) forum on Muffwiggler when there is news.

flight of harmony status update

First, my apologies to all for the current widespread unavailability of f(h) products from dealers and the long silence from myself. I have been busy building the combined stock orders and they should be available once again very soon – I hope to have it all finished within the next two weeks.

However, I have been spending so much time concentrating on this order that I now find myself a mite low on funds and need to pay some bills, so it is time for a pre-order sale! I am now taking orders for the following items:

  • Quad Plague Bearer (QPB)– US$300.00 + S&H
    • Rev. 3.3 circuitry (same sound as r4.0)
    • $50.00 off retail price of US$350.00.
    • S&H is $12.50 for continental U.S., international rates vary.
  • Infernal Noise Machine– US$666.00 + S&H
    • Solid walnut housing, hand-built by George Mattson of Mattson Mini Modular.
    • $111.00 off retail price of $777.00
    • S&H is $25.00 for continental U.S., international rates vary.

All orders must be prepaid to get the discount. Lead time for prepaid orders is 6-8 weeks, depending on number of orders and place in the queue.

Please send inquiries to flight@flightofharmony.com, orders can be placed via PayPal to paypal@flightofharmony.com.

‘Recognizer’ by Bennett Williams

We just received an email from a Flight of Harmony user named Bennett Williams alerting us to their album ‘Recognizer‘, which gratitously features the Infernal Noise Machine. For a link to their Soundcloud page featuring the album, click here. If you wonder ‘how in Hades did they get such wonderful drones, such strange percussion and create the sound of a thousand angry hornets’ – here is their creative process:

The [Infernal Noise Machine] had all of its CV inputs coming from both a Moog MP-201 CV pedal, and a Moog Etherwave Theremin Plus. Then I ran the audio through a Boomerang looper. Essentially what you are hearing are loops of the Infernal Noise Machine on top of itself many times over, all as I am changing parameters and creating new loops as I go.

We love to hear about how our customers are using (and abusing) our gear and what they create with it.

Thank you, Bennett.
