Moe alluded to this, but people are generally cautious clicking links. You should be as descriptive as humanly possible as to what they're clicking. One might assume Kurz files at this point. But further description /detail/explanation might drive more traffic, if that 's you desire.



Acoustic/Electric stringed instruments ranging from 4 to 230 strings, hammered, picked, fingered, slapped, and plucked. Analog and Digital Electronic instruments, reeds, and throat/mouth.

Good point, here's a video:




The links take you to my Soundcloud page to hear demos, I would prefer if Soundcloud could be embedded precisely because people could see that the links aren't nefarious.


Anyways, what I ultimately hope is more people who make instruments will start to realize the power of mixing forms of synthesis like I've done here with FM and subtractive. Most new synthesis efforts have focused on single methods, like physical modeling, and when there is more than one method on offer it's often sequestered into its own "engine" that makes hybrid approaches like this more difficult. Big up to Kurzweil for seeing well in advance that having flexibility will ultimately win out in the end. I'm strongly of the opinion that there's a huge swath of unexplored territory in this "hybrid" zone that can, perhaps, rival or better the results you get with physical modeling but in a more computationally efficient manner (read cheaper electronic instruments because they don't need heaps of DSP power). I think things are slowly moving in this direction, so perhaps a kick in the pants might get things to evolve faster. So this project is one of my "kicks", with more to come.
