In this note we describe a new set of associative memories able to recall patterns in the presence of mixed noise. Conditions are given under which the proposed memories are able to recall patterns either from the fundamental set of patterns and from distorted versions of them. Numerical and real examples are also provided to show the efficiency of the proposal.
