Continuum Fingerboard 5.3

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. /Music Industry Newswire/ — Haken Audio has announced the latest update for their Continuum Fingerboard hands-on electronic instrument and MIDI controller. The number of carefully crafted internal preset sounds has dramatically increased from 18 to 66. Included in these new sounds are designs using non-linear feedback filtering for wind physical models, granular sounds based on predefined timbre data, and sounds which take advantage of the other new design options available in 5.30.

An audio example that uses a selection of these new sounds can be found here: http://www.hakenaudio.com/Continuum/examplesfivetoni.html .

There are new Multipurpose banks, named BiqMode and SineBank. BiqMode is a filter bank which helps in the creation of physically modelled sounds. SineBank is a 16 oscillator bank which can be used as an additional oscillator resource. In addition, the GrainSilo now has added ability to granulate predefined timbre data, such as wind, brass, reed, drum, and bell sources.

The original 6 db per octave filters have now been augmented with 12, 18, and 24 db per octave variations, bringing a total of 28 filter possibilities for each filter.

Version 5.30 features the added ability to modulate frequency and bandwidth of filters at the full sample rate. In addition to formula-based phase modulation, the useful constants of 90, 180 and 270 degrees are available. There is now selective mapping of individual barrels for NSEW influence, increasing the felxibility of this useful master controller.

Version 5.30 firmware is available for free in the resources section of the Haken Audio site. Before using the new firmware Haken recommends you check out the newly-revised user guides for the Continuum, EaganMatrix, and CVC. More info: http://www.hakenaudio.com/ .
