It’s all in EINKLANG
EINKLANG is our first synthesizer following a new paradigm of sound generation. Instead of synthesizing sounds like traditional synthesizers according to a set of technical parameters (i.e. amplitudes, frequencies, spectra…), EINKLANG re-synthesizes sounds using instrument models. These instrument models can not only be tweaked directly in their musical parameters (i.e. loudness, pitch, timbre…) but also be morphed from one tone color to another. These key features allow the user to think in plain sounds rather than mathematical equations and to control EINKLANG with only few musical parameters. The musician can concentrate on musical aspects, while the synthesizer does all of the underlying technical processing.
Think Sound – Think Music
Morph a choir to a flute, or a guitar to a French horn, or anything you can imagine. For example, if you have a specific organ sound in mind, just take the 3 closest ones and morph around until you find your perfect personal setting.
In order to do so, EINKLANG’s graphical user interface (GUI) has been designed sleekly and intuitive. Located on the right side, you find the triangle morphing field which allows you to morph between three different tone colors, with ease. On the left side you find musical parameters for controlling the instrument models and the synthesized sounds. The parameters are arranged in three groups: loudness, timbre and modulation. Every parameter can be controlled by MIDI and recorded in a DAW (e.g. Ableton Live, Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo, Apple Logic, and many others).
The morph triangle has three slots for tone colors, one in each corner. The colored gem inside the morph triangle can be moved around and determines the morph ratio for the three tone colors to form a new one. When placed in one of the corners the corresponding tone color is heard solo. When slid along the sides of the triangle only two tone colors are morphed excluding the third one. Morph around, let EINKLANG’s engine take care of the specific synthesizer’s theoretical background. Find your very own sound and change it in real time while you play.
The Artificial Intelligence Studio Technology used in EINKLANG models the structures of sounds and specific nuances of different instruments. This enables you to change them more directly. Lowering the pitch of a cello, for example, affects its timbre completely differently than lowering the pitch of a French horn. EINKLANG’s instrument models are not static but very lively and responsive to pitch and velocity changes on your keyboard.
Generally speaking, what sometimes takes dozens of technical knobs in traditional synthesizers can be done with one in EINKLANG.
