Korg Berlin Unveils Acoustic Synthesizer Prototype
Korg Berlin, the independent R&D division of Korg, has unveiled a prototype for an acoustic synthesizer called the Acoustic Synthesis_phase5. The instrument uses tuned metal forks to produce sound, and its creators say it offers a unique and expressive sound that is unlike anything else on the market.
The Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 is the brainchild of Maximilian Rest and Tatsuya Takahashi, two engineers who have worked on some of Korg’s most iconic synthesizers. The instrument is based on the principle of acoustic resonance, which is the same principle that allows a guitar or a bell to produce sound. The metal forks in the Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 are tuned to specific frequencies, and when they are struck or bowed, they vibrate and produce sound waves.
The sound of the Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 is both rich and complex. The metal forks produce a wide range of overtones, which give the instrument its characteristic sound. The instrument also has a built-in LFO, which can be used to modulate the overtones and create a variety of effects.
The Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 is still a prototype, but Korg Berlin says it is interested in developing the instrument into a finished product. The company is currently gauging interest in the technology, and if there is enough demand, it will explore ways to bring the Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 to market.
The Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 is a unique and innovative instrument that offers a new way to create music. The instrument’s sound is both beautiful and expressive, and it has the potential to be a valuable tool for musicians of all genres. If Korg Berlin is able to bring the Acoustic Synthesis_phase5 to market, it is sure to be a popular instrument with musicians around the world.
