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

The Pyramid

  • Extended frequency range via its novel pyramid shaped design.
  • Transient detail is enhanced by employing a 2*30W Class A power amplifier driving 2 carefully selected wideband transducers.
  • Line level stereo in.
  • Bluetooth Audio (and APTX).
  • Line level and bluetooth can be mixed together.

Amplifier

This amp is a true class A design that does not switch to AB class. That is, there is no crossover distortion from a certain power level. The amp is said in direct connection, no capacitor in the path of sound and this from the beginning to the end, of course a DC detection is output and can stop the amp if a problem occurs, it triggers a 0.4V. Each active, or preponderant, component in its manufacture is individually tested, each transistor must be of equal gain and have curves similar operation.

The main characteristics of these resonators

  • They generate a 3D auditory space, just like a traditional acoustic instrument  (as opposed to traditional speakers being very directional).

  • They are not sonically «neutral», but are not meant to be: they offer a coloured sound carefully tuned by the luthier.

  • They offer a highly dynamic sound: users report that all the transients, like the attack off sounds, mechanical noises, etc., are perceptually better than on traditional speakers.

  • They enhance any electronic signal, imparting a carefully balanced acoustical environment into the source, immersive like an acoustic instrument.

  • They have two fine wooden soundboards with oppositional placement that are complementary sounding, further enhancing the 3D experience. Each soundboard has a separate volume control allowing for fine-tuning of the tonal balance.

  • They are designed to be able to transmit surface vibrations to your instrument, and offer a high number of possible mounting options to be attached to electronic instruments. This means that electronic musicians now can feel the vibrations of the sound they produce while playing, like any acoustic instrument player!

  • Like acoustic instruments, they are deeply interacting with their environment, allowing to fully take advantage of the specific tonal characteristics  of a venue.

  • They perfectly integrate with an acoustic ensemble.

  • They offer a very elegant wooden design (different finishing are available).
