Has anyone ever heard of the "Daxophone"?

This is the first I've heard of the tool/technique, and thought the community here would find it interesting. It creates some very fun sounds!

I was wondering if anybody here knows about physical modeling of a daxophone. This seems like "Madrona-territory".

If you know of any resources I'd love to read them, perhaps code up something myself!


Suppose Aalto and Kaivo had the option to choose what type of modulator was in each slot. For instance, Aalto has 5 modulators: Key, Sequencer, LFO, Envelope_A, Envelope_B. What if these were simply 5 slots, and any of them could be set to any of the modulator types? So you could have Key, Sequencer, Sequencer, LFO, LFO, Envelope_B. Or you could have Envelope, Key, LFO, LFO, Sequencer

I think this really leans into the "philosophy" of these instruments. It would give users much more ability to make creative patch and route configurations. At the same, it would maintain the constraint of having everything in a single window that makes patching these instruments so intuitive and inviting.

What do you think?

The preset file format would need to be changed, so that old/current presets could be opened with the new feature. But a script could be written to map old preset file formats to the new format. This script could be included in the new update, detecting old preset formats and automatically update them.
