thank you Jonny! I consider a standalone instrument a more complete presentation of the designer’s idea and aesthetics than a module, as not only functions are to be designed, but also the patch. I’ve been a long term fan of masterpieces from Buchla, Peter, Rob, Tom, Will etc, and Wing Pinger is my take on a standalone instrument, it’s very important to me.
My design goal is to maintain traditional musical elements like melodies and harmonies in a non traditional, chaotic instrument. And the ability to morph seamlessly between tonal and atonal sounds with a quick and intuitive interface, to offer huge expression freedom for musicians.
