Paraphrasis - open source spectral modelling synthesiser

maybe som1 could port it to PD/Organelle?!?!
would be damn great…

Paraphrasis is an open source spectral modelling synthesiser which can model any sound only with one sonic sample. It is something between sampler and modelling synthesiser. You do not have to sample all tones of instrument neither you have to spend time with messing with other synthesisers. Just load a sample to Paraphrasis and enjoy your paraphrased instrument! It is based on modified Loris - an Open Source sound modeling and processing software package - and JUCE.

Only two parameters are needed:

  • frequency pitch of a sample.
  • frequency resolution of spectral analysis.

Paraphrasis has a 16 voice polyphony and has a “Reverse” option to analyse the sample backward so it is synthesised reversed as well.

Note: Currently only mono sounds can be handled - the stereo input is automatically converted into mono.
