JoMoX | M-Resonator Neuronium
|This is the first realization of a device with Resonant Neuron Synthesis, called the "Resonator Neuronium".
The Resonator Neuronium has 6 analog resonant neurons. The net parameters can be programmed by the lefthand structure in form of a hexagon by use of knobs, buttons and LEDs.
The GECO (Generative Evolutionary Controlled Oscillator) is an oscillator, or rather the stimulus, to excite the analog neural net.This signal is generated by the neuron microprocessor in each individual neuron. The GECO waves or more simply the oscillator sequences are stored and played by internal “DNA codes”.
The new paradigms of the 21 century are called complexity, order from chaos, self organisation of complex systems, networking and cooperation. From a certain complexity onwards a system is not even the sum total of its parts but a greater whole which shows totally new attributes than its sub structures.
The Resonator Neuronium has 6 analog resonant neurons. The net parameters can be programmed by the left hand structure in form of a hexagon by use of knobs, buttons and LEDs.
There are 6 neurons with 6x6 = 36 net connections for one parameter. In order that summation and FM is connected, we have 2x36 = 72 net connections with individual pots for each node.
The rotary knobs are touch-sensitive and allow the net links by a simple touch of the metal coated knobs. The intensities of "wi" or amounts are then displayed and edited by turning the respective knob of the receiving neuron. For better understanding, the routed net connection is displayed as a matrix-LED and displayed in the LCD as Tx (transmitter) -> Rx (receiver) value. If you have a summing net connection, LEDs light up green, with FM connections LEDs light up red.
The loops indicate the self-networking connection of a neuron. As described in the article, one can let the neuron become self oscillating by resonance or let it toggle swing with positive feedback dependent of the sign of the loop value. The menu selection is made by the buttons within the hexagon to let the user not unnecessarily step through awkward menus.

|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.|
