Imagine a musical world where a simple waveform can evolve into a hybrid instrument that exists between reality and fantasy. Enter DOVInst, a complex and exciting technique invented by Andrew Fly in late 2020 that challenges the principles of traditional sound design and sampling.
Creating an organic digital instrument that truly captures the essence of a real instrument is no easy feat. It requires the ability to imagine a primitive waveform and transform it into one or more existing realistic instruments such as violins, harps, guitars, and pianos. The process can take months of painstaking modeling and refinement.
However, the advantage of DOVInst is that it produces sounds that are both conceptually and audibly close to the listener. While it may not replace real instruments, it offers a unique and experimental approach to music production. Those seeking a realistic instrument sound will not opt for DOVInst sample libraries, but for those seeking a hybrid sound that blends synthetic and realistic elements, DOVInst is an excellent option.
One significant benefit of using DOVInst samples is their compact size, as the realistic sound can be achieved without the need for extensive articulation sampling. Ultimately, the success of DOVInst lies in the imagination and skill of the sound designer, who must be willing to devote time and effort to achieve a truly realistic result.
Andrew Fly's groundbreaking work has opened up new avenues for sound designers and musicians alike, and his innovative approach has been widely recognized in the music production community. With DOVInst, Fly has given us a powerful tool for blending reality and fantasy, and his contribution to the world of music technology is truly remarkable.
