Critter & Guitari have announced a hardware update to the Organelle portable music computer, Organelle M.
Key features in the updated Organelle include:
- Built-in Speaker
- Built-in Microphone
- Battery Power
- MIDI Jacks
In addition, the Organelle M has been updated with a faster processor, twice as much RAM, and an improved web interface for patch management and Link sessions.
The company also highlights the growing code base for the Organelle platform. Through user development and sharing, the Organelle can now:
- Run SuperCollider
- Connect with Monome hardware
- Receive Control Voltage (CV) Clock
- Offer ‘remote’ patch development with a VNC client
The Orac Patch
Perhaps the most impressive and fun contribution to the Organelle is the Orac ‘meta’ patch. Orac is a modular system for building up a patch from different functions (sequencers, synths, effects, etc). Patch building is done without needing to code, by way of using the Organelle’s existing hardware (keys and encoder).
Pricing and Availability
The Organelle M is available now for US $595.
