Paul Vo is the guy behind the technology of the Moog Guitar (minus the Moog bits).
He has been developing a method of acoustic synthesis, attempting to control sound in the physical domain using electronics and DSP. The Vo-96 can be fitted to an acoustic guitar at the f-hole.
As we understand it, the synthesis functions work by electromagnetically influencing the strings of the guitar controlled by "intense DSP activity". It controls 96 harmonic channels - hence the name.
It certainly has familliar sounds to the Moog Guitar - which Paul Vo worked extensively on and was a bold move by Moog when it was released, adding Moog filter circuitry and CV control to the concept electronics developed by Vo.
This is serious and fun stimulation for your brain and heart, it's causing musicians to play more and making people smile. I am hooked on it for sure.
