The Concept

 

The oscillations of the strings are read individually by each piezoelectric element. Subsequently, the signal is processed by software
AlgorithmA step-by-step computational process that formed the basis of the new breed of digital synthesisers in the 1980s, notably the Yamaha DX-7. Sounds were created and modified by combining algorithms.

MIDIMIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a control language that enables electronic instruments to communicate with each other. In days gone by, if you wanted to play a sound from a given synthesiser, you had to physically play that specific synth’s keyboard - this resulted in performers being surrounded by huge arrays of keyboards.

Access TimeRefers to the time it takes for a computer or digital music device to respond to a command. When using digital musical equipment, access time can represent a delay between striking the note and the note actually sounding. The term can also refer to the speed at which a computer drive writes or presents the data stored on it, where access time is governed by the spindle speed, (e.g. 4,200 RPM averages 7.14ms latency).
