Synthesist Jordan Rudess has announced the GeoEncabulator – a new take on waveguide synthesis that takes magneto-reluctance digital modeling technology to the next level.
Here’s what Rudess has to say about GeoEncabulator:
Since 1943, work has been proceeding, in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a waveguide that that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. This technology has now been fully realized as a musical instrument using discrete time digital filters. Such an instrument is the GeoEncabulator
Now basically the only new principle involved, is that instead of sound being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it is now produced by a digital simulation, a model if you will, of the modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive diractance.
The original turbo encabulator’s base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing is now implemented using an inutile skeuomorphic interface. The two spurving bearings that were in a direct line with the panametric fan, are now realized using a pair of cascaded second order biquadratic filter sections.
The former consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, which are now digital waveguides. There is no longer a need for an ambifacient lunar waneshaft and side fumbling has been fully eliminated.
The GeoEncabulator has now reached a high level of development, and it’s being successfully used in the operation of nofer trunnions.
