CEO at Audio Modeling.
Stefano Lucato is a professional musician, musical producer, developer, and programmer. He made several records and musical productions for the Italian radio and television. His passion for music is paralleled by interest for acoustical physics, technologies for sound synthesis, and dedicated programming. Collaboration with Dr. Giorgio Tommasini starts in 2003, eventually leading to the development of proprietary techniques, such as “Determination of modal resonances and the impulse response of an instrument by analysis of pitched sounds”, and to creation of Midi processors used for the first prototypes of solo strings instruments: “The Stradivari Violin”, presented at NAMM as of January 2005. Afterward Stefano has developed a revolutionary method of sample handling, allowing real time multivector morphing across time, timbre and pitch. This technology (“Synchronous Wave Triggering”) has been applied for the first time to Mr. Sax T., the virtual tenor saxophone developed in collaboration with Samplemodeling. In 2009, Stefano began his collaboration with engineer Emanuele Parravicini on the development of a new and more powerful technology: SWAM engine.
