Ken MacBeth his new MacBeth Mk1 Vortex synthesizer prototype, running on a couple of 9V batteries.
Why 9V batteries?
When the zombie apocalypse is upon us and the power grid goes down for the last time, you’ll know why.
Here’s what MacBeth has to say about it, though:
This vid gives a short demonstration of the quality of sound driving this thing straight from 2 x 9V batteries!
To the left of the synth, you can see wires attached to the two batteries. For me- very interesting as the synth stay in tune very well here.
Also tech folks please note- there are neither smoothing capacitiors or regulators of any kind used here!
The batteries at this point were sitting at around the 8.5V mark!
