Although Wing Pinger has no oscillators, it is a fully capable analog musical instrument. The sound is generated, as the name already suggests, by two pinged resonant four-pole filters. Inspired by Rob Hordijk's instruments, the filters are connected in an interesting way and allow a very expressive playing.
The filters are either pinged through the keyboards or cross feedback. By using different feedback paths and cross modulation, chaotic relationships are created which, with a little practice, can be transformed back into melodic patterns just as quickly. Since there are two filters in the core, inputs and outputs must not be missing. Instead of pinging the filters, you can also use them in a more classical way and loop two mono signals (or one stereo signal) through the Wing Pinger. Due to the internal modulation possibilities you have a very extraordinary effect device at hand. The filter parameters Cutoff and Resonance can be controlled separately via CV and both Trigger and Step outputs can be used to control modular synthesizers. Meng Qi kindly thought of all possible application scenarios and also added a Midi interface. If you haven't already come up with hundreds of ideas when reading the last few lines, which you would like to try out with Wing Pinger, we would like to recommend this beautiful piece at least as a piece of furniture.
Meng Qi is a multifaceted individual: musician; university teacher and lecturer of sound synthesis and programming, and of course, instrument designer. In 2015 he designed his first module and by now his dual passive low pass gate DPLPG has found a home in many racks around the world. Mengqi has a passion for left-field instruments such as Ciat-Lonbarde and Rob Hordijk’s Rungler design (Benjolin)
