Soulsby Atmegatron 8-Bit Monophonic Synthesizer Review

This video, via SoundsAndGear.com, is a review of the Soulsby Atmegatron 8-bit hackable monophonic synthesizer:

It’s a crazy little desktop synth with tons of waveforms, 15 filter types, the ability to upload your own waveforms, and even change or hack the OS to turn it into a totally different synthesizer!

It has a very different front panel, so we go through the layout as well as the sounds and I even show you a few of the unreleased OS versions as well as the official Atcyclatron OS which turns it into a wavetable cycling synth!

The Atmegatron is built on the open source Arduino platform. This means that the synthesis engine can be completely changed by uploading software to the synth. One minute it’s a monosynth, the next it’s a drum machine. Soulsby Synths plans to relese new and completely free software versions over the coming months.

Features:

  • 32 waveforms
  • 15 digital filter types
  • 2 ADSR envelopes
  • 1 LFO with 16 waveforms
  • an arpeggiator with 15 patterns and
  • loads of fx including phaser, distortion and the unique Wavecrusher.
  • 16 preset sounds and unlimited preset expandability via the Atmegatron Librarian software available for Mac or PC.

See the Soulsby Synthesizers site for details.
