LittleBits and Korg unveil the Synth Kit
Japanese electronics manufacturer LittleBits partnered with Korg in order to design a mini analog synth Kit for beginners.
According to the first information provided on LittleBits japanese website, the Synth Kit is a DIY analog modular synth that you will build by choosing between 12 mini modules which connect to each other with magnets. Synth beginners and even kids won’t need soldering and can even switch modules easily.
Here is the list of the available modules:
- Oscillator: dual oscillator with pitch adjustment and switchable square and saw waveforms
- Random: random voltage mode
- Keyboard: a full octave with transposition
- Micro Sequencer: step sequencer with 4 knobs
- Envelope: for volume control
- Filter: dual filter based on the Korg MS20 filter circuit with peak and cutoff controls
- Delay: echo module with time and feedback controls
- Mix: blends two signals with volume control for each input
- Split: a signal splitter
- Synth Speaker: mini-speaker with volume control and output jack
- Power: cable or 9V battery power supply for the full kit
Full info are available in japanese at jp.littlebits.com/synth/. The Synth Kit is expected in December but there is no information regarding its price and availability in your country.
Here’s a demo of the kit, beware of the volume!
