Resonations: Soundplane + KYMA Combine For A Wooden Controller/Instrument Hybrid

Using a Soundplane controller from Madrona Labs plus music programming language KYMA from Symbolic Sound, software developer bar|none has put together an interesting resonating instrument that looks like controller from the past and sounds like some sort of futuristic erhu.

According to bar|none: The sound is a resonation synth that models initial attack and picking of a string + the resonations and feedback associated with a resonating instrument body. More pressure means more feedback and energy into the resonations. Spent some time with this sound to make it respond properly with the soundplane. Faster hits and you hear the picking. Vibrato and you hear the scraping on the strings. This uses the Madronalabs Soundplane to send OSC to KYMA directly via ethernet, no MIDI here. The soundplane client supports zeroconf discovery of OSC capable devices, so KYMA pacarana appears as an OSC destination and that is all required to connect the two. Symbolic Sound helped with the integration.

See it in action below, it’s slick!
