Acolyte Instruments is extremely happy to announce the preorder for our new Euphonic Array™ the Overtone1!  The Overtone1 introduces our second classification of Euphonics in the Euphonic family of instruments; “Sonic Experience Euphonics” (the Euphonic Array™ 1D for example is a “Musical” Euphonic; the other class).

What is the difference?
The Overtone1 is incredibly unique in that is is tuned outside of equal temperament (the world standard) in “Just intonation”

What is that???
That means instead of playing “notes” the Overtone1 plays scientifically relative harmonics from a given pitch. These overtones are a phenomenon that occur naturally in nature. Starting on frequency 65.406 (around what we know as C2 in equal temperament) the Euphonic Array™ Overtone1 plays corresponding frequencies at a ratio of 1/4 1/5 1/6 1/7 1/8 1/9 1/10 (see diagram in pics)

If you were to check the tunings in A-440 tuning system they would sing C4+16, E4+7, G4+4, A#4=41, C5-7, D5+14, E5+7

Please note – because the Overtone1 is tuned in just intonation, it will not play in tune with MOST other instruments you may own or play)

This instrument isn’t about making traditional “music” that you may hear at the orchestra, but it is more a work of sonic Art.  It also just sounds awesome!
