Saturday Synth Porn: This is a demo and promo video for the StringStation – a new electroacoustic instrument that combines the expression of string instruments with the power of digital technology.
Check out the video and features and let us know what you think of the StringStation concept!
Features of the StringStation include:
- Computerized surround sound pickup matrix under strings at harmonic hot-spots harnessing three dimensional audio.
- Computer controlled and programable 3D resonance of 40 strings creates ‘unique sonic fractals’.
- Digital Sound Modeling allows layering of natural string tones with custom modeled sound waves to offer a ‘wide open palette’.
- Exceptionally sensitive to tactile nuances of human touch, offering a hyper expressive dynamic play surface unlike any other resonant instrument.
The project is the brainchild of Jim Bartz, who is trying to take the instrument from a prototype to a shipping instrument.
