Christophe Duquesne has released Anckorage Spring  –  a new physical modeling synth for IOS (iPhone,iPad and iPod).

Anckorage Spring is based on “the simulation of a set of connected mass- spring, integrating non-linearities, fluid and static friction, mechanical limits, gravity and bouncing.”

It is designed to be controlled by a continuous controller but can be used with a regular keyboard or directly from the device screen or from other core MIDI apps. According to Duquesne, a continuous controller will provide a much more accurate control of the model.

The mains ideas behind Anckorage Spring are:

  • Being able to tweak real world parameter like Mass, Force, Gravity, etc. instead of tweaking usual electronic parameters,
  • Not only try to mimic real world, but also allow very “unusual” things like modulating a Mass and changing the Gravity,
  • Emphasis control and expression using the physical parameters,
  • Open a new world of sound to experiment with….

Features:

  • Real physical modeling sound engine
  • Fully editable physical model
  • 88 200 Hz internal sampling rate
  • Special Haken Continuum compliance
  • Playable by any midi device
  • Core midi base (therefore including virtual midi and network midi compliance)
  • On device touch control
  • Rich preset management
  • Preset exchange mechanism (through iTunes Share)
  • All parameters controllable by MIDI CC
  • Audiobus compliant
