ElectroKraft.com has announced the resurrection of the 1980’s video game Space Invaders in a cool modular synth box called the Space*Synth.
Using the original synth chip from the 1980’s video arcade game Space Invaders, ElectroKraft has captured the familiar, yet otherworldly sounds of classic video games.
Tony Amendolare from ElectroKraft.com is creating experimental electronic instruments and effects that are influenced by the burgeoning new sounds in the areas of chip music, experimental electronica, noise and circuit bending.
Space Invaders in a Synthesizer Sound Chip:
“I have recently discovered a marvelous synthesizer chip that was developed in the late 70’s and used in the video arcade games of the 1980’s, such as Space Invaders. These are sounds I remember as a kid and they’re the sounds electronic musicians are seeking to incorporate into new music. People are currently using old Atari video game consoles, Commodore 64’s and Game Boy’s to create a new form of music using vintage video game sounds.”
“The sound generator chip I’m using in the Space*Synth is wired so that you can recreate all of the sounds of “Space Invaders” and other video games of the 1980’s such as “Pong”, “Donkey Kong” and “Asteroids”. In addition to these video game sounds you can also easily create a host of other “alien” sounds and effects.”
Instrument Input & VCO Input
You can use the Space*Synth as a stand alone space synthesizer or plug in a guitar, bass, vocals or any other electronic musical instrument and have the Space*Synth process the signal. There is also a VCO input jack where you can plug in another synthesizer or oscillator to create a ring modulation effect.
- Standard 1/4″ in/out jacks.
- Runs on 9 Volt battery or 9 Volt universal adapter power jack.
