Acoustic Synthesis - DSP Controlled Harmonics

From Paul Vo - maker of the Moog Guitar      18/02/13

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.

Paul states:

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.
