Here’s a hands-on demo of the new LeafAudio Microphonic Soundbox, an electroacoustic instrument that they say is “Supercool for creating otherworldly sounds and ambiences, great for processing with hard- and software.”
“The Microphonic Soundbox is an acoustic instrument which I created 20 years ago,” says creator Manuel Richter. “We made it public now to share it with you.”
The Soundbox features 2 internal contact microphones and 2 very low noise pre-amps (~100x Gain). Both signals are mixed together and sent to the mono out as a line level.
Inserting an external signal to the input will switch off the first internal mic, so it can also be used for amplifying and mixing external signals and working with modular gear.
