The New Cutting Edge: Multimedia Synthesis!

Welcome to Yofiel, the first multimedia synthesis company. For many years, the fields of audio synthesis and multimedia have been separate. Yofiel aims to unify audio synthesis with multimedia by drawing in 3D from real-time synthesized sound. At its core is a multitimbral music metasequencer and custom audio synthesizer, designed for the best audio quality possible. From the sound, it draws 3D shapes in OpenGL (scalable for any screen size).

Yofiel is also making some of its audio synthesis components available, not only for free, but also with an open component design, in support of its worldwide artist community.

A number of Youtube viewers are available for Joomla, but all the ones I checked have the same problem. They install the entire Youtube video player and start downloading the video before the page is fully loading, causing a long hang for end users. This small script instead downloads a picture of the video and puts a play button over its top. The Youtube player and video itself are not loaded until the user clicks on the link. Here is a demo.

After trying to get my website working with other lightboxes, it seemed a good idea to make a new one, Most responsive lightboxes require very large libraries and are not easily customizable. So I wrote my own for this site. Here is a demo.

Godel is the first in Yofiel's metamusic series of synthesizer designs. Future instruments will contain subsets and supersets of the Godel controls. This section now describes all of Godel 3's main panel controls in detail, and in the future will be expanded to note which are available in which instrument instance.

This is a top-level view of the Max patch to create the SVF filter gain compensation. It samples 300 SVF filters simultaneiously, reducing the time to complete table completion from 14 days to an hour.

Godel 3 for Ableton Live is now available for free. It fixes the Godel2 'no sound issue'; it is up to double the performance of Godel 2, uses less memory, and loads quickly; it adds 37 custom oscillator waveforms with variable shape and custom anti-aliasing, feeding an enhanced SVF with 5-dimensional gain compensation.

Here is a quick demo from a half-hour midnight session that shows what it can do.

Glitch art refers to the use of audio signals and audio effects to modify images. The Cycling74 BEAP modular synthesizer system is particularly suited to glitching. This article provides a prototype for the first glitch modular system in Max7. This is very advantages for glitch art, because numerous audio modules are already available in BEAP for waveform generation, filtering, and effects; the results can be viewed in real time; the modular system is openly extensible to support many artistic variants; and modules can be customized for unique results.

Recent advances in Efficient Polynomial Transition Region (EPTR) algorithms provide remarkable performance and quality. Here is a new EPTR pulse oscillator with variable pulse width, FM, and sync. It offers exceptionally well-defined harmonic bands, and low noise between them, providing astonishingly pure square waves that closely resemble vintage analog hardware, with extended frequency response up to MIDI F7 at 44.1kHz and MIDI F8 at 96 kHz. Here also is a unique design that improves the quality of sawtooth and variable-width triangle waves.
