MAKE SOMETHING THAT MAKES MUSIC
littleBits and Korg have demystified a traditional analog synthesizer, making it super easy for novices and experts alike to create music.
Incredibly POWERFUL, easy to use, modular analog synthesizer.
"littleBits makes building a modular synth as easy as Lego time"
"A truly wonderful and imaginative piece of art that snaps the world and its people a little closer together."
"This will be the birth of a new kind of music"
Leave your friends and family starstruck! Check out our friend, Reggie Watts, rocking out using the Synth Kit.
From the Beatles to Björk, legendary artists have used analog synthesizers to produce complex sounds and innovative music. For the first time ever, the littleBits Synth Kit will enable anyone to build their own sound machines with little to no engineering or musical knowledge. Included is a handy 35+ page booklet, with step-by-step instructions for 10 great projects like the Keytar and Synth Spin Table. You'll also receive a 9V battery + cable, everything you need to get started right out of the box.
Turn the main knob on the oscillator to change the pitch. You can select the kind of waveform it produces and then adjust the tuning knob. The "pitch" range goes from being so low that it is unpitched to very high pitches. You can have lots of fun by twisting the pitch knob and "sweeping" through all the frequencies!
A synthesizer is commonly controlled with a keyboard similar to a piano. Each key creates a voltage that represents a note. The octave dial on the keyboard allows you to play in 4 different octaves, changing the range of notes you can play. Use the oscillator to adjust the pitch.
Random voltages can produce interesting effects in a synthesizer. The position of the knobs on the micro sequencer affects the range of the random voltages. There's no telling which voltage will be sampled!
The Synth Kit enables anyone who is interested in music technology to easily get started. With these simple circuits, you will learn the basics of analog music synthesis.
