LeafAudio - Microphonic Playground

Product information "LeafAudio - Microphonic Playground"
Microphonic Playground is the newest addition in our series of sound design instruments. Like its bigger sister, the Microphonic Soundbox, it's a playground for sonic exploration of any kind. It can also be your inexpensive entry into the Soundbox world before you possibly upgrade later.

It works through body sound transmission on basis of a contact microphone. In comparison to airborne sound transmission (via a microphone), all sounds created on the box can be listened to in a very intimate and direct way. Imagine it like listening to the materials from the inside, very much in an ASMR way.

The difference to the Microphonic Soundbox are two things:
1) It is passive, has no active amplification and needs no power supply.
2) It's an open playground with no audio sources or objects built into it, so you are free to attach everything to it what you can imagine.

To get you started with ideas we now offer a variety of add-ons, that can be used with both the Microphonic Soundbox and the Microphonic Playground.

The unit has an audio input and an output. Its audio output can be amplified by the external input of a Microphonic Soundbox and therefore act as an extension. Or it can be amplified by any pre-amplifier, mixing desk or audio interface. Multiple Playgrounds can be cascaded in series. Play it on its own, or extend your Microphonic Soundbox with one or two Playgrounds and some of the new add-ons.

You're free to use it as a platform for sonic experimentation or just convert it into a Bass Kalimba, for example, and leave it that way. Please choose your own way to play with it and let your imagination and creativity guide you.
