Sound Sculpture features...
Sound Sculpture provides visual feedback using a Laser light scanner to show
visually the extent and location of the active space of the ultrasonic sensor.
The Laser can be switched off if you want to keep the active space invisible.
This visual feedback provides a
real improvement in ease-of-use and speeds up the dawning of awareness...
the awareness that the sounds and music are made by your own movements.
Musicality - Rhythm Harmony
The ability to synchronise the Sound Sculpture with other instruments and
musicians or recordings using a microphone. Or to sequence it using MIDI,
gives Sound Sculpture powerful rhythmic potential.
With this rhythmic capability and
its versatile harmonic tools, Sound Sculpture enables group performances
with as much rhythmic and harmonic integrity as you choose. From totally
in-time and in-tune, to completely chaotic, atonal and formless.
With Sound Sculpture you also have
the ability to control pitch-bend, volume and other aspects of the synthesiser
sound, using any of the sensors.
Sound Sculpture is a musical instrument
of the highest caliber in it's own right. You can follow complex jazz scores
if you really want to, by sequencing through different harmonies with a
footswitch or sequencer.
Recording Your Own
You can record your own music from a keyboard or sequencer directly into
Sound Sculpture. And then replay it using the sensors. The recorded music
can be a sequence of single notes, chords or a mixture of single notes and
Each recorded sequence can contain
over 190 recorded notes. You can record up to 39000 notes of your own music
into Sound Sculpture.
Flexible, Ease to Use
Users have been very impressed by the flexibility and ease of use incorporated
into the Sound Sculpture. This is the result of carefully incorporating the
suggestions, ideas and requirements of the many individuals and organisations,
clients and colleagues who have collaborated with Sound Sculpture's development
and maturation, while maintaining a sense of balance between flexibility,
ease of use and accessibility.
Sound Patches and Memory
A sound patch is a convenient way of handling all the settings and adjustments
you make during a Sound Sculpture session, as well as any recorded material,
so that you can build up a library of personalised setups. Sound Sculpture
has 200 sound patches built in, each one can be modified, renamed and
Also, patches can be saved or loaded
from plug-in transferable memory cards. There are 100 patches per card.
Every effort has been made to make sure Sound Sculpture is as affordable
and accessible as possible. We aim to make a living, not a killing...
