La Voix du Luthier has created two acoustic resonators, the Onde and the Pyramid, that are designed to be an alternative to using speakers to amplify electronic instruments. They are in the tradition of the diffuseurs of French instrument designer Maurice Martenot. Instead of being designed to reproduce sound accurately or ‘flat’, they’re designed to resonate, to become part of your electronic instrument and part of your sounds.
Favory uses the combination for acoustic performances, because the Synthi’s signal is not directly amplified by a speaker, but is amplified acoustically with the vibrations of the Onde’s wooden body.
You can read more about the Onde in our interview with creator Christophe Duquesne.
