Xhun Audio - ResonHeart

Mechanical Synthesizer

ResonHeart is the physical modeling simulation of a never seen before, experimental, aerophone-based acoustic instrument.

The Imitation Game

Built as a virtual instrument through the use of physical modeling techniques (ACS), ResonHeart has to be considered as a natural born acoustic machine made of clockwork components, air pumps, motors, pneumatic valves and complex resonator blocks (one per voice).

Each resonator block consists of a set of sixteen universal Helmholtz resonators (which can be individually triggered and tuned) arranged in a characteristic modal-synthesis disposal.

This particular design makes ResonHeart genuinely capable to imitate the peculiar sound of a wide range of acoustic systems, including rigid-body or membrane-based percussions and cymbals - one of the hardest things to simulate using physical modeling.

Features

  • Physical modeling simulation of a complex acoustic sound generator machine, achieved by the adoption of the Advanced Component Simulation (ACS) approach
  • Full 64-bit processing accuracy for every single aspect of the simulation
  • A 100% original aerophone-based mechanical acoustic instrument, featuring an articulated modal architecture and capable of mimicking other acoustic instruments' tones and flavours
  • Entirely made of mechanical components (resonators, motors, valves) which have been modeled after existing, commercially available parts
  • Air pump motors with dedicated automations and retrig control
  • Venturi valves
  • Swing motors and valves (from 0.1 Hz up to 20 Hz)
  • Pneumatic solenoid valves (with a 3-ms aperture, 2-ms disclosure timing)
  • Air turbulence dispersion control
  • A complex resonator block (one per voice) made of sixteen universal Helmholtz resonators, each with independent tuning (internal volume) and pressure (embouchure) controls
  • A dedicated modulation for resonators' tuning, featuring Swing, Contour, Velocity and Pitch Follower controls
  • A dedicated modulation for resonators' pressure, featuring Swing, Contour, Velocity and Pitch Follower controls
  • Operates as a monophonic or polyphonic (4-voices) instrument
  • True polyphony, achieved by simulating separate, fully-independent mechanical sound generators
  • Separate controls for global tuning, voices detune (spread), pitch bending (amount) and portamento
  • An accurate room / hall simulation (resonator-based)
  • A spatial displacement engine, arranging the instrument's four voices/blocks inside the room space
  • Including a 130+ ready-to-use factory presets collection, covering different styles and genres, including deep and solid basses, real-world cymbals and crashes, membranes and percussions, woodwinds, plucked strings, ethnic bells and whistles, organic motion pads, symphonic strings and choirs sections, evolving soundscapes, psychoacoustic sound effects and more
  • MIDI automation
  • Support for sample rates from 44.1 kHz up to 192 kHz
  • Available in multi-size GUI resolutions
