The original Critter & Guitari Organelle was released in 2016 to critical acclaim. Now in 2019, we welcome a new revision to the famous instrument: the Organelle M. The new version features dedicated MIDI I/O in 3.5mm TRS format, a built-in speaker, a built-in microphone, and the option for powering the instrument through battery power.
The Critter & Guitari Organelle is a computer that processes patches, each of which is capable of assuming a different form depending on the user’s preferences. The unit features onboard connections for sound I/O and assignable knobs, buttons, and keys for triggering samples, playing notes, and controlling effects. Custom patches can be edited in the Organelle or via computer and can be uploaded and shared between users, enabling nearly limitless inspiration and vast sonic potential.
