Electrorganic Percussion aFrame

   0 reviews  -  136 views
    Description
    The aFrame enables performers to organically express their musicality just as if they were playing an acoustic instrument—the player controls the subtlety of the performance. ATV’s proprietary “Adaptive Timbre Technology”* responds to the acoustic percussion playing techniques of striking, pressing, and friction. With nuance, the player can produce sounds that have tonal variation and effect controls not possible with existing digital percussion.

    For a natural feel, the playing surface of the aFrame is made of a hi-tech material with excellent bounce and friction characteristics, yet it has the familiar feel of headed acoustic percussion. When playing the aFrame, its organic feel is instantly recognizable. The natural bamboo frame comes from a renewable resource and has properties that technically contribute to the playability of the aFrame. The bamboo frame is produced through a collaboration with Fujigen, Inc. (based in Matsumoto, Nagano; President: Hiromi Kamijo; Capital: 95,600,000 JPY), a long-established and reputable manufacturer of wooden frames for musical instruments, as well as the automotive industry.

    * The “Adaptive Timbre Technology” dynamically adapts characteristics of a number of filter groups and produces a broad range of tonal variations of the instrument in conformity to the playing surface conditions and tonal frequency components that vary along with playing styles of the percussion instrument player.

    Features

    Stress-Free Performance with Bare Hands
    Because the aFrame is played with bare hands, percussionists don’t have to change their playing style. They can use their natural technique to produce a diverse palette of sounds, from classic acoustic to modern electronic.

    Performance in Any Way You Want
    The unique diamond shape of the aFrame aids in the production of varied tones—it all depends on where you strike it. The aFrame can be held with the hands like a frame drum, placed on a stand, or held with a neck strap; you can play it any way you want.
    For a cable free experience, you can use available USB battery packs and guitar-type wireless audio technology.

    Tone Creation
    Tones can be created using the onboard acoustic and electronic sounds, and further enhanced with internal high-definition stereo effects. Up to 80 user-defined tones can be saved in the built-in memory.
