“A voice recorder that is fun and easy to use for all ages. Hold down the red button to record, press the black button to play back, and dial the knob to adjust the speed/pitch for fun and frivolity. Record time is roughly 30 seconds. Hand-crafted and hand-painted from sustainable American wood, non-toxic acrylic paint, and electronics.” – momastore.org
A few weeks ago I purchased a Hard Soft Synth 3i or HSS3i from Bleep Labs. It’s a creation of a Dutch man know as Gieskes. The unit creates analog video and audio. As you can hear in the recording I made above it’s quite interesting. You will know instantly if your the type of person who will like this thing. It’s very THX1138. For some more photos of what you get: click here. Expect to see some of the video output from the HSS3i in my live shows.
“The Hard Soft Synth 3i is an indescribable audio / video generator by noisemaker extraordinaire, Gieskes.” – Bleep Labs
$80 built, $55 for the kit. Pre-order: click here. This is the Stylophone Twenty Ten style. At 1:20 minute in one the video above is where you realize you want this over a software plug-in!
“The Nebulophone is an Arduino based synth with a stylus keyboard. It has adjustable waveforms, a light controlled analog filter, LFO, and arpeggiator that can be clocked over IR. This is a beginner kit and does not require an Arduino programmer board.” – bleeplabs.com
