Developer Stephan Schmitt (founder of Native Instruments) has shared a variety of video demos of his latest project, the Nonlinear Labs C15 Synthesizer, in action.
Here are a few examples:
See the Nonlinear Labs site for a large collection of video demos. Check the text under the videos for details on the control elements used when playing the piece.
The Nonlinear Labs C15 Synthesizer is a new synth, designed around these concepts:
- Standalone systems. Self-contained synths, based on Linux systems & ARM processors. Optionally, software GUIs can be used by connecting external devices via Wi-Fi.
- Full control. They have developed the TCD musical control protocol which they say overcomes many limitations of MIDI. TCD stands for “Time, Curve, Destination” and implements a high-resolution control over all aspects of a dynamic and expressive live musical performance.
- Software-based digital sound synthesis. “Software-based” means that the durable instruments can evolve without falling into obsolescence.
- Top-quality hardware
- Open source
- Local production. Prototyping and production is carried out as locally as possible.
