Interesting experimental device
Alekarfes 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 for 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 actually there, we just can't hear them normally. I can hear a clock on the other side of the wall, I can hear when a 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.

Portable noise radio
an-tre 08.11.2022
Ether is surprisingly small and light, and does what is was designed to do.
It works well with headphones (A-T ATH-M60x), but when attached to a portable recorder (Tascam DR-22WL, phone) a constant hum is always present. Maybe changing the length of the connecting cable will help.
Also, the case is made of plastic, and to replace the batteries one must unscrew 4 screws - hopefully the batteries will last long, or the screw holes will not!

Great machine to find and record electromagnetic noise
Tony Amsterdam 24.09.2022
The Soma Ether is a great machine to find and record unexpected electromagnetic noises, as a basis for your samples or background sounds. The little machine is portable and can be hooked up with a recording device. You will find amazing sounds just by pointing this unit to lightbulbs, hard drives, mobile phones etc. The build is a bit plasticky, but sturdy enough for mobile use.

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 :) )
