At the 2021 NAMM Show, La Voix du Luthier introduced a new version of its Pyramide acoustic resonator – the Pyramide Essential.
In the video, Christophe Duquesne demonstrates the Onde, the Pyramid and a new Slim Continuum controlling Jordan Rudess’ Geoshred application, with video mapped to the Onde & Pyramid resonators.
The sound generation comes from a layer of a Continuum preset and Geoshred. The audio is 100% acoustic and is recorded with a Zoom IQ7 and a Zoom H2. It is raw audio, direct from the mics, without any editing, and it is a one take live shooting.
The Pyramide Essential as an acoustic resonator – a device that essentially turns your electronic instrument into an acoustic one. It does this by using the signal from your instrument to vibrate wood acoustic resonators, similar to the way a guitar string causes the body to resonate. This approach means that your sounds are affected by the resonances of the Pyramide, which adds a physical dimension to your performances. This also makes it idea for electronic musicians wanting to perform with acoustic musicians.
Pyramide Essential differs from the original Pyramide by eliminating the integrated amplifier of the original. You can use it your own amplifier, similarly as passive speakers, but with a true acoustic sound (each Pyramid is stereo, and offers 2 voices that can be bridged to make it mono, 8 Ohms or 4 Ohms).
Pricing and Availability
The Pyramide Essential is available via La Voix du Luthier for 1 195,00€.
