My name ist Tom and i live in Bochum, Germany. As a retired analytical chemist, I just a few days ago stumbled over the Z<ynthian Project. “Chapeau” - I am quite excited about this great group and development, so I immediately orderd a kit, and I’m waiting for it to arrive …
Some info about my background:
… I’m not a professional musician nor programmer; only had to work with some (offline) signal processing like FFT and 2D chromatographic spectra.
… as an amateur musician I play piano and brass instruments (trombone, trumpet, cornet), for which i want to examine and create better sound files which sound more realistic than the ones i have found so far.
… I’m also also interested in early music scale temperaments (to find out how instruments and music would sound like in the old days")
… Add “simple” sensors/controllers to MIDI equipment like a breath controller for wind instruments
… and - don’t laugh too loud ;-)) - trying to develop something similar to the old Fairlight CMI for new sounds
like dynamic harmonics / overtones.
I do want to contribute and share experiences as much as I can and I will be delighted when you user group members will be shooting (meaningful) holes and criticisms into my proposals to
