Physical modelling synthesis

Hello again Richard

I was wondering if you could recommand some physical modelling synths that I could check out later and decide myself.

Things that sound similar to Steam Pipes on reaktor, ND2, MI Elements ... I'm into techno and I want to introduce some unusual sounds, using theses synth in a "unusual" way

Thank you

Hello, right now one of my favorite physical modeling synths is Chromaphone 2 by Applied Acoustic Systems: https://www.applied-acoustics.com/chromaphone-2/

You will probably really dig this one, as you can make some really interesting with it, and the interface is really fast and intuitive.

Another favorite of mine is Madrona labs "Kavio" which cleverly combines granular synthesis and physical modeling in one interface, the sound is completely beautiful and very detailed. http://madronalabs.com/products/kaivo

Humanoid Sound Systems - Enzyme plugin, very interesting plug-in that combines wavetable and physical modeling synthesis.

Although not completely based on physical modeling but well worth a look is 112dB's "Cascade" synthesizer.

Yes ! Thanks, love the interface indeed. Seems like it is a little more powerful than Ableton's collision yet easier to use.

Kaivo is great too. Madrona Labs is awesome, Aalto is good too. They made comprehensive interfaces, their plugin are inspired by quite esoteric techniques yet they are quite easy to use and understand. I recommand to other slutz.

Cascade seems interesting for soundscapes and such

Thanks
