Plasmonic--new from Rhizomatic, creator of Absynth

Rhizomatic is back in business! They createdAbsynth, then sold it to Native Instruments. They are back with Plasmonic, a new softsynth that is a hybrid of wavetable and physical modeling. It is fully compatible with MPE. The designer, Brian Clevinger, describes it as being as expressive as an acoustic instrument. Each individual note can be controlled by numerous gestures.

It has some of the look of Absynth...blue-green, no knobs (sliders only!) and a really unique sound. If you are expecting it to be even more complex than Absynth, it's actually much simpler but no less unique sounding. The demo cannot save and shuts down after 30 minutes, otherwise it is fully functional.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
