Among all the synth release violence of NAMM 2019 stood out something special. The Soma PIPE is a synthesizer you control with your mouth. It can process your singing or beatboxing into a wild music performance.
The PIPE is a creation by Vlad Kreimer from Russia. Not very good at singing he decided to turn his voice into a lead instrument using a dynamic contact mic and some custom FX processing. This turned into the Soma PIPE instrument which he is now selling on his boutique musical instrument website.
