I had no idea that Brian had special software to make Absynth.
https://www.emusician.com/gear/native-i ... win-review
"Absynth, released in 2000 by developer Brian Clevinger''s Rhizomatic Software, garnered an immediate cult following as the go-to synth for strangeness, especially in long, evolving sounds."

Personally :love: those "long, evolving sounds."

Rhizomatic Software was the company name, not the special software he used. :P

Yep, you are right.
But perhaps rhizomatic philosophical concepts had something to do with the way he produced Absynth.

In any case this is interesting

If I remember correctly he lives in Paris (France) and works at the IRCAM or at the GRM (music labs both founded by Pierre Boulez and Pierre Shaeffer). So I bet that if he releases a new synth it will be a new beast for experimental music.
:)

By the way, all his most recent production made with Absynth were experimental music.

In a podcast some time ago he was talking about getting into modal synthesis. The logo being used also looks like tines or tuning forks. I’m imagining something sonically triangulated with Prism, Kaivo and the AAS suite through a CPU-friendly Absynth lens. If it has IRCAM prices then it’s too rich for my blood.

Corrected in my text. Thanks.

And in fact, outside the administrative side, they worked together on both. By the way they worked together on many, many works and projects.

When was "Announcements coming soon." first made public.
End of October
So my guess is that the synth announcement will happen this November.
The other guess is it will be $149 with a $99 intro price.
Perhaps two synths?
One being Absynth 6?
But more likely one synth with another one on the way.

EvilDragon likely knows but he never violates his NDA.
I respect that.

AFAIK NI legally owns Absynth trademark and IP fully, so, if A6 ever happens, it would only come through NI. I could be wrong though, but I don't think I am. :clown:

Maybe they'll team up again if the stars and marketing droids align.
But there are still ways to expand Absynth, and many people
who have yet to even use it. I've only used presets myself,
but maybe a long monsoon will change that...

In the meantime, Absynth 5.999999 is just a few mouseclicks away,
in a world full of .wav files :hyper:

My instrumental music is now on Spotify and the other streaming sites that Distrokid supplies, search Franklin Cheney, the song titles and cover art might offer a content clue, peace, energy, romantic, fun etc
Cheers

Yes, it was. Pierre Boulez was connected to IRCAM not GRM
