New Anukari Synthesizer Based On Principals Of Newtonian Physics (Sneak Preview)

Anukari Music shared this sneak preview of Anukari, an upcoming software synthesizer based on the idea of creating a network of small masses (like little ball bearings, or marbles) connected by springs.

The masses can be vibrated by striking them via MIDI input, or they can be vibrated directly via audio input so it can act as an effect processor or reverb plugin.

Topics covered:

00:00 introduction
00:27 the basics
02:00 why?
02:37 strikers
03:20 mics
03:57 evolution
04:51 interaction
05:32 putting it together
06:04 effects processing 1
07:51 effects processing 2

Details for Anukari are to come.

  1. I would buy this. Love the visual aspect. Have to say the speakers cadence kept making me think of Linus explaining the meaning of Christmas lol.

  2. more game engine IP ported to synthesizers. *yawn* wake me when something new happens like a Organ Grinder and Monkey VST. that would be cool.

    1. Spoken from someone who has never used a game engine in their life. Kids these days. Don’t worry no one will be waking the dinosaurs stuck in the tar pits

  3. 10 years ago, Synthtopia reported on Christophe Duquesne (dba Ankorage) and his app called Ankorage Spring

    And a year or so later with SpringSound:

    Anukari takes these ideas further and in different directions (pun intended). But just wanted to give a shout-out to Christophe for laying some of this groundwork a decade ago.

  4. This is really cool. The synth part is a little boring sounding to me, but using it as fx is way cool. There’s some noises I haven’t really been able to figure out how to make until now watching this, exciting!

  5. This strikes me like a cross between Chromaphone and a spring reverb. There’s a unique sweetness to the tone when its in ‘pretty mode,’ which I like. I’m just not sure its one I need in light of my other resources, such as Klevgrand’s Speldosa and several junkyard percussion kits. Its clearly still in a beta form, though. Let’s see what the next iteration is like. Good start!

  6. People have been calling it acoustic modeling for a very long time now. A great many people are refusing to remember the past these days.
