SeeSaw presents and discusses methods
for implementing a hybrid synthesizer,
by employing a digital embedded
platform for editing digital signal
processing algorithms in realtime.
The aim of the project is the development
of multiple instrument patches
using synthesis techniques and methods
in Max/gen visual programming
language. Analog circuits are developed
as supplementary modulation effects
for enhancing the digital audio
core. Moreover, the project investigates
the impact of electro-mechanical
parts both from sound aspects and design
interface perspective. The majority
of the digital synthesizers are
based on simple knob/button interfaces
that lack intuition and expressive
quality. In return, this research aims
to address these challenges by proposing
a new hybrid digital interface, designed
and reinforced by analog circuits
and mechanisms, that allows for
syn-aesthetic human-machine interactions.
