It’s a delay line type synth that has been
specifically structured to emulate the hammered dulcimer, but it does OK
with few other simpler string instruments. It’s based around a buffer
that is seeded with an impulse, and then filtered once every period.
The envelope, Chorus and volume knobs do exactly
what the seasoned synth enthusiast would expect.
It generates a
grains’ flow in which the way each grain follows the
other depends on probabilistic parameters such as grain
density (attack/sec), overlapping, synchronism and fade
of each grain.
generated by the synthesis could be harmonic, expanded
or contracted according to the value of frequency
exponent parameter; the result will be a sound texture
that can change from noisy fragmented sounds, to
metallic and tuneless sounds such as bells, finally to
harmonic sounds similar to strings or choirs
