Home > Winners > #124936


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Aurora

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Synthesizer

INSPIRATION:
Aurora is a synthesizer. This synthesizer uses a green laser to control effects and sound filters. This green light is reminiscent of the bright rays of the aurora borealis in the dark of the night. The name of this product is derived from this natural phenomenon. Aurora is an innovation in the world of electronic music that can create a different experience for a composer while performing.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In this synthesizer, a laser is used to control the effects and filters. In fact, this creative method has replaced touchpads and sliders to control sound effects. In addition to increasing the ease of use and speeding up the composer's action, this laser is attractive and has a visual beauty for audience and composer during a performance. An enjoyable and different experience while performing or composing. Aurora also has a touch screen for easier settings and status display for the composer.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Aurora is an electronic musical instrument that, like all synthesizers, generates audio signals. But the way it works is more attractive. At the head of the Aurora, there is a laser beam that is automatically set with the sound of the section. You can change the type of sound by placing your hand in the path of the laser light and interrupting the path and increasing or decreasing the length of this laser beam. By pressing the laser buttons 1 or 2, you can copy the type of effect or filter you want to control by the laser. The shift button also allows this to be done instantly. On the other part of the Aurora, there are knobs, sliders and buttons of oscillators, effects, filters, AMP, LFO and other adjustment buttons for tuning and composing. Some settings are also available digitally by touching the touchscreen. The screen is multi-touch so you can easily and professionally use the virtual keyboard displayed on it.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project duration was about 24 months: 2019/2021

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The body of the product is made of ABS plastic by injection molding method. The laser is produced by a generator. The laser is directed to the beam for the composer to access. The length of the laser beam is set with the frequency of each sound by a processor, and as the length is reduced by the composer's hand, the frequency of the sound set with it also changes. The screen is multi-touch and allows you to play the digital keyboard.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Most of the research part of this project is about matching a set of quantitative data with another set of continuous quantitative data. The process that helps to use the laser and match the quantitative characteristics of the sound with the length of the laser beam.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge is to upgrade the product to increase the quality of composing more easily and quickly. Using laser technology and instantaneous processing of its length for use in the product. Setting laser beam with sound indicators to control effects and sound filters for sound generation and electronic composition.
