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.
Check it out and let us know what you think of it!
Ken MacBeth, of MacBeth Studio Systems, gets his chilltronic prog jam on in this sneak preview of a couple of new synths he’s working on – the MacBeth Photon and MacBeth MicroMac synthesizers.
Here’s what he has to say about the analog duo:
This is another video of the micromac (prototype) in action with the even more compact 21HP 3U X-Series Photon synthesizer module (prototype). Both the micromac and Photon are complete analogue synths!
I’m using my all analogue CV and Gate keyboard to drive the Micromac and a Korg Prophecy/Kenton Pro Solo to drive the Photon. The Photon is the arpeggiated synth going on here.
gain it’s fun to do this stuff, and my playing is not the best- but this video does give you a good idea of the power and the sound of these seriously small in size synths doing their job!
The MicroMac and Photon synths are prototypes. Release date and pricing are to be determined.
