Infection Music Limited
Electronic Musical Instruments

Founded in 2003, Infection Music produce electronic musical instruments for amateur and professional musicians in need of quirky, fun, interesting and dynamic tools for use either in the recording studio or out on the road.

After a prolonged period away from manufacturing, we're now embarking on a new set of projects, which we hope will be of interest to a new generation of musicians.

ZEIT / ATEM Step Sequencers

Our past products include the highly regarded ZEIT and ATEM step sequencers. Only a very limited number of these sixteen step, eight channel sequencers were ever produced. However, we're developing a new CPU board that will restore functionality to failed units and deliver a whole series of new and exciting features twenty years after the original units were first announced.

Modular Systems

We've been developing a small range of Eurorack Modules. Watch this space for details of future products.

Digital Polyphonic Synthesiser

The on-going development of our VA digital synthesiser reaches the protoype stage.

Latest Updates

  • 17-Jun-24: News page

    Changed the format of the News page so that we can post more information in a clearer and more comprehensive style.

  • 14-Jun-24: Software Release 02-10

    ZEIT Version 02-10 was released into the wild earlier this month. We expected one or two issues but so far, so good, as they say. Quietly pleased.

  • 25-May-24: New Product : Zyra

    We're delighted to announce a new product, Zyra.

    See the News page for more information.

  • 16-Apr-24 : Software Release 02-10

    Something of a milestone today - I finished the last remaining module for the ZEIT Replacement CPU Boards. It's taken two and a half years to get this far. Beta-testing begins next week and should last two to three weeks.

    See the Blog page for more information.

  • 14-Mar-24 : Software Release 02-10

    Software version 02-10 is nearing release. Whilst this release will be close, it won't be the final version for the new CPU boards. I've updated the list of those features that won't appear in the 02-10. Don't worry. It's not that big...

    See the News page for more information.

  • 11-Mar-24 : i/o Boards

    I put together four of the new i/o boards last week - two switch boards and two potentiometer boards - and they all worked first time.

    See the News page for more information.

  • 04-Mar-24 : i/o Boards

    The re-worked i/o boards for the re-engineered ZEIT sequencers arrived last week. They're a perfect fit. Even better, I tested these boards against a couple of Thonk's 10K 9mm pots and they're also a perfect fit.

    See the News page for more information.

  • 16-Feb-24 : New products

    Whilst this has not been an easy month, I managed to snag some time between hospital visits to work on a couple of new projects.

    More details to come.

  • 10-Feb-24 : Delays

    Once again, we're behind schedule on delivery of the next round of CPU boards. The delay was caused by circumstances entirely beyond our control - a member of our team spent some time in hospital.

  • 19-Jan-24 : Updates

    Full speed ahead. Hope you're having a good January. Click below for information on current projects, a couple of overdue re-designs and our on-going sample library project.

  • 01-Jan-24 : Happy New Year

    Happy New Year to all of our customers.

  • December 2023 : Web Pages

    We're updating the web site. This version has been re-designed from the ground up and should (hopefully) load on all modern browsers. If it doesn't then please let us know.

    Similarly, we're updating the web site for our partner operation, Unreal Devices. That work isn't quite sorted yet. It should be completed in the next couple of days.

  • December 2023: Backup & Restore

    With the installation of a new CPU board, ZEIT finally has a proper backup and restore utility. At the moment, these programs are stand-alone applications that you will be able to download from the IML web site and then load into the sequencer using the Arduino IDE. This isn't the ideal solution and we plan on embedding the same functionality within software release 02-10, which we hope to release before the New Year.
