this changes everything 3

I KNOW I can't stop talking about this but I have no desire to consign this design to history

as per the method, add "design" to "guitar" and "new"

maybe a few videos to get the ball rolling.

I like the chimes of the melody chords. then the sustain section.

even a sequence of two harmonics.

shameless picture of the interface

I didn't see the power plug before

after all that, let's update some information

quotes from the man himself.

the serial port is for debugging, not for customer use.  the mystery port shall have to remain a mystery for now.  the BlueTooth interface is how GUI extensions such as sound design and librarians will be implemented. 

note the current presets and button definitions are entirely firmware defined.  we do have firmware release II ready, and with the next production run of the Vo-96 we'll be shipping the new firmware which has 3 whole sets of behaviors where the current UI definition is but one set.  I have just scratched the surface of what is possible with this technology.  It's as new and unexplored as the first analog synths were in the `60s.  People are STILL designing new sounds with synths today.  So there is a long long path ahead.

the following self - serving statement was deleted. we KNOW this is brilliant!!!

but I love this statement

The Vo-96  instantiates 16 virtual harmonic control systems per string and clearly demonstrates detailed individual and independent amplitude control of every significant harmonic component of each string's vibration.  It thereby performs additive synthesis within the physical guitar strings - it's physical, more real than analog. there is nothing even close to being this as far as groundbreaking goes.  people just don't understand how different a thing this is -- which is understandable of course.  I'm not complaining, but I am stating a reality that I hope will one day be more generally recognized.

well, we are CELEBRATING your efforts now

just go read up about this.
