Simbals possède un savoir-faire et des technologies innovantes pour la musique en rupture avec le marché. Les fondateurs de Simbals ont pour cela mené de nombreuses études et recherches universitaires à l’origine des produits de l’entreprise. Ces recherches ont souvent donné lieu à des publications internationales en conférence et revues scientifiques, ou à des logiciels et brevets.

Brevet

Matthias Robine, Pierre Hanna, Julien Allali, Pascal Ferraro, Benjamin Martin, Myriam Desainte Catherine, Vinh-Thong Ta. « Exemplar based assignment of large missing audio parts using string maching on tonal features ». Brevet US61/547,854 déposé le 17/10/2011.
