Synthesist Chris Stack (ExperimentalSynth.com) has shared a series of videos, capturing some of the workshops at ContinuuCon 2017, being held June 8-10 in Asheville, NC.
ContinuuCon is an annual event that focuses on the Haken Continuum, a pioneering electronic music instrument that is designed to offer expressive control and dynamics on a par with the best traditional acoustic instruments.
The daytime workshops include discussions about performing with the Continuum, creating patches with EaganMatrix, interfacing with Eurorack modular synthesizers and more.
The first video, embedded above, features Ed Eagan, discussing EaganMatrix, the deep synthesis engine that powers the Continuum.
In the next video, Euro designer Russel Hoffman introduces his new Eurorack interface for the Continuum, which exposes the Continuum’s multiple dimensions of control as control voltages for modular synthesis:
In the following video, Christophe Duquesne, a sound designer and programmer (Anckorage Spring), digs into EaganMatrix effects design:
In this video of his second session, Ed Eagan discusses the future of EaganMatrix, the synthesis engine of the Continuum:
The second day featured a discussion by Ed Eagan, Sally Sparks and others on playing techniques and musical notation for the Continuum:
In his second session, Christophe Duquesne discusses physical modeling algorithms and his work for new synthesis options for the Continuum:
Programmer Jesse Chappell discussed iOS and the Continuum in his session:
In this video, Benedict Slotte digs into the details of creating a pitch shifting audio processing effect with EaganMatrix:
