A New Way to Make Music
Misha is an innovative Eurorack instrument/sequencer that utilizes a unique, interval-based approach to playing and creating melodies. It’s designed to be played like a keyboard instrument and yet it makes music in a way unlike any instrument before it. In addition to playing it live, you can also record sequences that can be modified in a multitude of ways, allowing for new paths of spontaneous creativity.
A New Tool For Performing & Composing
Misha has a way of helping you discover new musical ideas, even ones you didn’t consciously create. The interval-based approach introduces a new perspective even for a trained musician, but offers the untrained a simple path to creating melodies. Create a simple melody or sequence, change the key and scale, and manipulate the pattern into a whole new creation!
- Tone Row Sequencer
- 100 Scales
- MIDI and CV inputs
- USB and Keyboard Mapping
- Assignable Buttons
Inspired by twelve-tone composition, Misha’s sequencer expands upon the tone row technique, allowing for new paths of spontaneous creativity. Modify your sequence using some of the classic techniques such as Prime, Retrograde, or Inverted playback, or completely rearrange your sequence in unpredictable and exciting ways.
Misha comes preloaded with a variety of scales ranging from typical Western scales, microtonal scales, scales that use just intonation, and everything in between. Additionally, two banks of User scales allow you to upload your own scales using the Scala format for further experimentation.
Load a new sequence, key, scale, and more on the fly using presets. Presets can be accessed from the dedicated preset menu or can be loaded via MIDI Program Changes from external devices, allowing Misha to be an essential piece of gear for live performance.
Integrate Misha into your Eurorack system using the 3 pairs of T/G/CV inputs and outputs, or connect to your DAW or synths and sequencers via MIDI.
MIDI Note/CC maps and 3 pairs of CV inputs can be customized to a wide range of functions such as transposition, translation, randomization, loading keys and scales, sequencer transport control, and much more!
Play Misha’s intervals from your favorite MIDI keyboard or device and create a custom MIDI mapping to suite your needs. You can also play Misha using a USB computer keyboard using custom mappings.
Easily assign Misha’s 4 user buttons to play intervals or other convenient functions such as octave up/down, chromatic steps, and more.

“The only sequencer of its type in existence. Bravo.
Misha offers 100 unique scales; far more than you could name, from Blues to Raga and beyond. There are also two banks for user‑definable scales on top of this, so there’s no real limit to what you can do tonally.”
“A wonderfully different approach to creating melodies and progressions.
Misha is a jamming and experimentation dream. An incredible tool for experimenting and jamming, it forces different thinking and playing approaches that, while they can be learned, encourage a different type of creativity.”
“The novel concept itself cannot be appreciated enough…
The Eventide Misha is a creativity-enhancing improvisation machine with a high fun and learning factor. A high-quality workmanship and the well thought-out user interface, which can be learned relatively quickly and is ergonomically easy to use.”
“Combines real-time performance with classical composition techniques.
[Misha] contributes something very exciting to the world of sequencing and Eurorack in general, offering an inspiring approach to melodic sequencing which works well any style of music.”
“Misha is definitely worth a look.
Experimenting with intervals rather than the typical notes of a keyboard is an experience that feels decidedly new, full of happy accidents and curious discoveries… Whether you’re subsumed by music theory or completely resistant to it, Misha is definitely worth a look.”
Working with 4ms, Eventide is able to offer a low-cost, portable, compact enclosure that turns the Misha Eurorack module into a table-top instrument.
The POD32E is 32HP with 1.3″ (33mm) of available module depth. The built-in power supply has two power connectors and can be daisy-chained to other Pods.
