A new piece of gear from Richard D. James.

Aphex Twin has collaborated with the company foam on the Midimutant, a device that uses AI to create synth patches on a DX7.

“Equipped only with a microphone input and midi output, the midimutant runs on a Raspberry Pi and uses artificial evolution to grow new sounds on hardware synthesisers that mimic an example sound you provide,” the company explains in a statement.

You can watch the Midimutant in action in the above video and hear other sounds from it in the SoundCloud tracks below.
