Here’s another sneak preview, via Ken MacBeth, of the upcoming Micromac-r synthesizer.
“This is the first test that I have done of the micromac-r synthesizer since this test example came back from the assembly plant,” says MacBeth. “All is good! It’s working perfectly! One hell of a lot of sound come from a very micro sized unit!”

In this video, Ken MacBeth Of MacBeth Studio Systems demonstrates a prototype of a new touch keyboard.
Here’s what he has to say about the touch keyboard:
This is a demo of the touch keyboard that I’m working on. Gone is the physical stylus- now a finger with a small piece of foil is acting as the actuator! It’s fun and it works.
The touch keyboard is playing the MacBeth Micromac desktop unit via it’s CV inputs. I’m using a fair bit of sample and hold- LFO1 S&H is sampling the LFO2 Triangle wave- is sounds a little bit like sequences or arpeggios.
I’m also using the CV from the touch keyboard to control the speed of LFO1- at the very bottom of the keyboard- it’s 0 Volts- at the top it’s about 3 and half volts- so the LFO speeds up and slows down accordingly.
