As promised here's the second half of the interview conducted with Eigenlabs founder John Henry Lambert on the day of the official Eigenharp launch. Loads more good stuff, including...

  • What generates the sounds
  • On-board Synthesis System
  • the in house software development
  • ...and the fact it'll be Open Source
  • the 2 basic modes of use
  • John's take on built-in computers
  • possibilities for Linux
  • ...and for software instrument developers
  • Loading & playing Samples (boring samples are good!)
  • the question of MIDI
  • controlling video with the Eigenharp
  • and the music of the future!

The Eigenharp has been 8 years in development - it's an enormously deep instrument, and there's a lot to learn about it; I felt I barely scratched the surface in the limited time we had on launch day.
So many questions still ... main one for me being the crucial software interface; so much relies on the ease with which you actually interface with, setup and control both the parameters of the Eigenharp, and the target sounds or software instruments.

No doubt we'll be spending more time with the Eigenharp in the weeks to come - and there's also no doubt that an incredible instrument has been unleashed... exciting times ahead!
