Hey guys, so if i understand correctly and from listening, the geometry/structure parameter in the modal resonators moves from plate responses (counterclockwise) to string (11 o’ clock) to metal and glass (clockwise).
I have a few questions regarding this:
- what are the actual responses on each position of the knob? I couldnt find any information as to precisely what knob position corresponds to which real world structure precisely
- Olivier, how did you obtain these structure informations? did you record some impulse responses and tried to mach them by hand with the bandpass filter distribution in the resonators?
- Would it be possible to change them via an alt firmware? Im thinking to use rings as a primitive convolution-ish device, not for time-based reverbs but for instrument bodies. Would it be possible to simulate the harmonics of say a violin body, adjusting the “absorbance” via brightness and the “size” via frequency?
Since many early physical modelling attempts relied on band pass filters (eg polymoog resonator) I am fairly confident it would be doable in a modal resonator which is essentially the same but with more bandpasses, no?
