Have you ever dreamed of a MIDI controller that could turn your touch into music just like a real instrument? Meet Loom.

Loom is a multidimensional MPE MIDI Controller designed for immediate playability and expressiveness.
MPE synthesizers and virtual instruments offer you rich sounds that respond to the slightest variation, but there are few controllers fit to the task.

At Aodyo Instruments, we have drawn on our previous experience with the Sylphyo and the Anyma synthesizers to offer musicians a versatile and powerful device.

Whether you play live, record in the studio or compose music in your bedroom, Loom will become a flexible and original addition to your setup.

FEATURES
Don't be fooled by its simple appearance: Loom's magic lies in the synergy between its surfaces and sensors, offering you different playing modes that will allow you to play almost any kind of virtual instrument or synthesizer.

PLAYING MODES
Unravel evolving chords, weave intricate melodies, craft expressive rhythms. Any way you choose to approach it, Loom is designed as an extension of your hands.

Loom can function as a MIDI Keyboard, offering access to a two or three-octave range. You can play notes, bend them, nuance your attack, and add expression by sliding along the keys.

But if you want to break free from the keys, Loom can also work as a MIDI Ribbon, allowing for smooth sliding across its surface. Optionally, it can make sure you land on the right note, making it easier to play with others without losing the free-form nature of the ribbon.

If you want to play chords like a guitar, Loom offers a MIDI Strum mode, where you can choose a chord with one hand and strum virtual strings with the other. Or you can play it like a harp, directly sliding your fingers across the chord.

For rhythmic parts, Loom also got you covered. Its MIDI Drumkit mode has been carefully designed to provide you with a unique and efficient layout for finger-drumming. It can sense the way your finger hits the surface, as well as the position of your hit: flick more or less quickly to open the hi-hat, move your finger along the ride cymbal's edge or bell, and obtain subtle variations on your snare sound. It works great with acoustic and synthetic drum sounds.

It works great with acoustic and synthetic drum sounds.

ACTION ZONE
To the left of the surface lies a pressure-sensitive squishy square area called the action zone. Press it to have nuanced control over dynamics or effects.
EDITOR
The companion editor allows you to customize every aspect of your Loom: change modes assign zones, map MIDI controls, set thresholds, and adjust response curves.

2 OR 3 OCTAVES
Craft melodies with two octaves. Weave symphonies with three octaves. Loom is designed for portability, while its extended version, Looom, offers a wider playing range.

BUILT FOR MPE AND LEGACY MIDI
MIDI MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression) is an extension of the MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) standard that enables more nuanced and expressive performance capabilities for electronic instruments.
Traditional MIDI communication allows for control changes to be applied globally across all notes of an instrument. In contrast, MPE assigns each note its own unique channel, allowing for individual control of pitch, volume, and timbre per note.

This innovation opens up a new realm of expressive possibilities, letting musicians bend, slide, and modulate notes independently, much like on acoustic instruments. By providing detailed control over each note's parameters, MPE enhances the expressiveness of electronic music performances.
Loom is designed from the ground up for MPE, but it also works very well with any non-MPE MIDI instruments, even monophonic ones!

DEVELOPER-FRIENDLY
You're not limited to the modes we've designed. If you know your way around code, you can also take over and create your own. You can send a specific MIDI message to enter developer mode, where every input will be sent as-is, and you'll be able to control the LEDs and display by sending MIDI SysEx messages to the Loom from your own program or script running on your computer. This way, you can entirely control what's happening on your Loom, design new playing modes that you can distribute to others, or use Loom as an experimentation platform.

CONNECTIVITY
Using a USB or MIDI cable, you can easily connect your Loom to all your hardware and software: VSTi, Audio Units, hardware, etc.
Here are a few demos that showcase examples of how Loom can be used and setup.

A few details and pics via their Kickstarter campaign follow.

"In December 2020, thanks to Kickstarter contributors, we achieved a successful campaign for Anyma Phi, the compact desktop monophonic physical modelling synthesizer. Six months later, we delivered it to our contributors.

Since then, we listened to the users feedback and worked on a more powerful and full featured instrument: Anyma Omega. Based on Anyma Phi synth engine, we designed Anyma Omega, a powerful hybrid polyphonic and multitimbral synthesizer. Its physical modelling synthesis engine allows to create new sound universes inspired from the real world, where objects collide, vibrate, and resonate.

Anyma Omega comes in two versions: desktop and keyboard, both including a large display and many controls, with unique sensitive wooden surfaces to feed resonators and enhance expression.

Whether you play live or compose music in the studio, design your own sounds or play presets, Anyma Omega will become a flexible and original addition to your setup.

PHYSICAL MODELLING

Anyma Omega blends the classic ingredients of electronic music with physical modelling technology, allowing it to simulate acoustic sound sources, such as strings or reeds, as well as resonating structures, like wood, glass, or metal.

POLYPHONY

16-notes polyphony with all the richness of Anyma's synthesis engine.

MULTITIMBRALITY

4 sound parts splitted, layered or even chained.

EXPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE

Proven Fatar® velocity sensitive semi-weighted synth action keybed with aftertouch for musical and expressive playing.

Numerous controls to enrich the performance and unique sensitive wooden surfaces (ribbon and touchpad) to feed resonators and enhance expression.

EASY EDITION

Easy access to 14 macro parameters controlling the main characteristics of patches.

Tweak every parameter of every module with the large display and controls, unleashing the power of a semi-modular synth at your fingertips.

Direct access to the various modules thanks to the interactive synthesis path diagram.

ALEAGEN

Create aleatory consistent patches, by pushing a single button, based on smart random algorithms.

POLYMORPH

Beyond polyphony, the exclusive PolyMorph feature can provide extra width, density and depth to the sound: fine-blend panspread, unison, expression and morphing for every single note.

TUNING AND MICROTUNING

With Anyma Omega you can use any scale or tuning to make your sound travel all around the world and the eras.

Explore our multiple microtuning presets. You can also load Scala (.scl) or Anamark (.tun) files in Anyma Omega by converting them to MIDI Tuning standard (MTS) format. In addition to importing and exporting tunings, there are several options that can be used to define and edit tunings directly on the instrument: reference tone adjustment, 12-tone octave scale, tuning table for each note and n-EDO scales.

CONNECTIVITY

With a lot of input and output ports, Anyma Omega easily connects to all the machines, synths and controllers. It is compatible with any standard MIDI controller, including our own electronic wind instrument: Sylphyo.

Plug external audio and use Anyma Omega as a powerful modular FX processor.

FREE EDITOR / LIBRARIAN

Free multi-platform editor/librarian inherited from and compatible with Anyma Phi's sound bank. Organize, archive and share your Anyma patches and performances.

Based on the Anyma Phi monophonic and monotimbral sound engine, Anyma Omega is polyphonic and multitimbral. Play up to 16 notes simultaneously and combine up to 4 sound parts (individual patches) in a performance. Route audio signal from one part to another to create monstous patches.

Anyma Omega Desktop provides an advanced user interface, making the use of an external editor quite unnecessary. We kept the macro parameters matrix of the Anyma Phi available, now available simultaneously thanks to the big TFT IPS color display and its 16 push encoders."

Il y avait .. à vent...


Laurent Baloran

Baloran controlled by Aodyo Sylphyo wind instrument. Googlish translation below.

"Laurent, un camarade nordiste et son équipe ont conçu le Sylphyo, un instrument à vent autonome et midi via le lynk. Bien sûr, j'ai voulu m’intéresser au midi et sa liaison avec The River. J'ai profité de la version 2.0 de l'OS de The River pour adapter l'information de souffle CC11 au fonctionnement de The River : lissage du flux, modification du cycle de l'enveloppe (le decay 'disparait' et le sustain est 'remplacé' par le souffle...),
Tout ce que vous entendez sort du River, une prise, effets inclus (le nouveau Shim). Voilà, vous constaterez avec effroi que je n'ai pas beaucoup bossé la flûte à l'école ;)"

Googlish:

"Laurent, a northern comrade and his team designed the Sylphyo, an autonomous and midi wind instrument via the lynk. Of course, I wanted to take an interest in Midi and its connection with The River. I took advantage of version 2.0 of The River OS to adapt the CC11 breath information to the operation of The River: smoothing the flow, modifying the envelope cycle (the decay 'disappears' and the sustain is 'replaced' by breath ...),
Everything you hear comes out of the River, one plug, effects included (the new Shim). Here, you will note with fright that I did not work a lot the flute at school;)"

Sylphyo Quick Start: With a MIDI synthesizer


Published on May 24, 2018 Aodyo Instruments

Spot the synth.

"Want to use the Sylphyo to play your favorite synth? This video shows you how in one minute.
If this is the first time you use your Sylphyo, make sure you charge it for up to 8 hours before using it.
You will need a MIDI cable (not included) to connect the MIDI output of the wireless receiver device to the MIDI input of your synthesizer. Power the wireless receiver using the included USB cable and charger, and turn on your Sylphyo and your synth. That's it!

Sylphyo is a next-generation wireless MIDI wind controller made in France by Aodyo Instruments. The Sylphyo allows you to play any kind of sound (or synthesizer) like a traditional woodwind instrument, with their unmatched feeling and expressive possibilities. If you play the saxophone, recorder, flute, trumpet, clarinet, oboe, or whistle, you'll feel at home with the Sylphyo. If you don't, it's a wonderful way to get started with wind instruments. In both cases, the Sylphyo combines the countless possibilities of electronic instruments with the feeling of acoustic traditional instruments."
