Interesting experimental device
Phtor, 15.01.2020
When I heard about Soma Ether, it reminded me of transhumanists implanting magnets in their bodies - a device to grant a brand new sense that a human being. And I was not wrong.

Ether allows me to get a taste of the world that is hidden in plain sight - all the sounds are there, we just can't hear them normally. I can hear a clock on the other side of the wall, I can hear when tram accelerates, I can hear wires in my walls. All the lamps, all the electric devices become things I can feel.

I feel a little bit deaf when I'm without Ether.

Weird Mic for Weird people
Pawney, 28.04.2021
I love this. It is at times soothing and others terrifying.
Great if you have a discreet/small handheld recorder, but plugged into my Zoom I was worried about dropping one or the other.

Pros -
You can get some amazing samples / beds using this

Cons -
It is very light plastic and I don't think it would survive a drop. Could really do with a shock cover etc or a wrist tie.

Overall though, it's a very specific purpose tool. If you want it you won't be disappointed.

Electromagnetic Sounds
Steven J, 06.07.2020
What can I say? Soma makes some really great stuff and this one is so much fun to use.

If you like noise / drone music / ambient stuff than this is a must-have. You can pick up some amazing and unique sounds with this (and it gives you an excuse to go outside). The extra controls are a nice update on the last version and it's a sturdy little case.

Only Con: In order to change the batteries you need to use a really small screwdriver to open the entire thing. I love this device but this can be a little bit annoying, other than that it's great!

Amazing source of organized chaos
Lacrymology, 03.05.2021
A great tool to gather non-white noise, and to use as controlled-random CV (needs external amplification for proper CV, since it's earphone level), although of course the recording gear or whatever you're controlling will create its own noise.

By controlled random I mean that the signal is noise, but the specific noise changes with location/orientation, and it's easily reproducible (as long as you keep pointing it in the same direction :) )
