In partnership with
Haken Audio

La Voix du Luthier has designed two new speakers, without speaker cones !

The Onde and Pyramid were unveiled at ContinuuCon (the Haken Continuum Fingerboard conference), held this year at the prestigious Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique (IRCAM) in central Paris, and then presented at SuperBooth 2018.

These self-powered speakers, designed in collaboration with Haken Audio, give the sound of a luthier’s expertise in acoustics to any electronic musical instrument.

These novel speakers…

  • generate a 3D auditory space, just like a traditional acoustic instrument.
  • are not sonically « neutral » at all! They enhance any electronic signal, imparting a carefully balanced acoustical environment into the source, immersive like an acoustic instrument.
  • have two fine wooden soundboards with oppositional placement that are complimentary sounding, further enhancing the 3D experience.
  • use separate volume controls for each soundboard allows the user to balance the acoustical spectrum.

 

Details

Audio inputs:

  • Line level stereo in.
  • Bluetooth Audio (and APTX).
  • Line level and bluetooth can be mixed together.

The Onde:

  • Feel the acoustical vibrations while playing your electronic instrument due to direct acoustical coupling, emulating this subtle yet significant playing experience that naturally occurs  in traditional acoustic instruments.
  • Can be specifically adapted to the Haken Continuum Fingerboard and Haken ContinuuMini (via additional structural couplers).
  • 2*30W Class D amplifier driving 2 carefully selected wideband transducers.
  • Battery-powered option, with initial tests showing up to one full day of use between charges.
  • The Onde can supply power for two other USB devices during normal operation.

The Pyramid:

  • Extended frequency range via it’s novel pyramid shaped design.
  • Transient detail is enhanced by employing a 2*30W Class A power amplifier driving 2 carefully selected wideband transducers.

 

A Kickstarter launch is planned for Fall 2018
