The Spectraphon is collaboration with Tom Erbe of Soundhack, who has worked with Make Noise previously on the Echophon, Telharmonic, Erbe-Verb and Morphagene.
Spectraphon uses real-time spectral analysis and resynthesis to create new sounds from those that already exist. It is inspired by classic electronic musical instruments, including spectral processors, additive synthesis, vocoders, and resonators, but it takes a physical form closer to the Buchla 259 and the Make Noise DPO.
Hodson says the Spectraphon is something “he’d definitely jump at”. Check out the video and share your thoughts on the Spectraphon in the comments.
