Sonic LAB: Baby Audio Atoms - Mass and Spring

US Physical modelling instrument      26/02/24

We take a look at the brand new Baby Audio ATOMS - a physical modeling synth based on the Mass-Spring concept.
At a basic level: The specific physical model has been turned into an instrument by Silvin Willemsen and Baby Audio. There are masses (usually balls) connected by springs (virtually of course). These are excited by a bowing action and so the masses move and the springs react.

In its simplest form these are sine waves, but with additional parameters thrown in the algorithm they become more complex.

Weird, yes and sonically pretty pleasing when processed by the rest of the ATOMS voice architecture - namely, a filter and a reverberator.

What you'll find are atmospheric,  organic and certainly unusual sounds that share a common ground. Its an early release, with a couple of missing things - MIDI mapping for instance, but these we suspect will soon be added.

Available now priced at $59 intro offer from https://babyaud.io/atoms
