Physical Modeling Performance With Modular Synth & Expressive E Touché

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via Gianni Proietti (aka gattobus), captures a live performance of The Wind Forest, featuring physical modeling synthesis on a Eurorack modular synth, controlled by a keyboard and an Expressive E Touché controller.

The Wind Forest is from the soundtrack to My Neighbor Totoro, by composer Joe Hisaishi.

Here’s what gattobus has to say about the technical details:

“I took advantage of the amazing features of Expressive E TOUCHE’ to play a physical model recreation of a classic cello built with my eurorack modular synthesizer.

I used Karplus/strong technique: a noise source through an analog BBD delay used as a resonator.
The sound may not be perfect but the sensitivity of this controller make it feel so real. 🙂

You can find the patch description at the end of the video. I hope you like it!”
