You’ll have to customize the code for another SysEx format - specifying the range of all parameters. Given that the source code is not even released, I don’t know how hard it is going to be.
It’s kind of fun that they made it completely synthesis method agnostic, but wow, this is not a particularly efficient way of “reverse-engineering” a sound.
After digging a little bit, I believe its FM synthesis.
No, in their demo they control an FM synth but nothing in the method they use is specific to FM synthesis.
All in all, it seems like a pretty cool idea. I skipped over their implementation details and read the paper they cited. I’ve always wanted to play around with Ambika as a percussion instrument. It be really cool to sample an 808 bass drum hit or snare and see how close the Ambika could come to it.
