The object of the first part of the project is the design and development of a novel musical instrument for excellent vocal synthesis in real-time; the core of the instrument will be an articulatory vocal synthesizer, composed by three parallel algorithms for physical modeling synthesis based on an unprecedented joint bio-mechanical and acoustic simulation of the human upper airways.
The joint licensing program grants the use of over 400 patents and patent applications including basic patents for physical modeling synthesis previously marketed under the names Sondius and Virtual Acoustic (VA), which are essential for the development of products incorporating increased musical expression and interactivity.
