Developer MoShang has announced Groovesizer Red – a new 8-bit sequencer + synthesizer that will be available as a DIY project or pre-assembled.
The Groovesizer RED is a DIY 16-step MIDI sequencer and granular synth.
It features 16 LEDs (one per step), 5 potentiometers, and 5 buttons, MIDI input and ouput on 5-pin DINs, MIDI sync in and out, and audio out (mono) on an 1/8″ jack.
There are 32 user locations for saving patterns and patches. Up to 4 patterns can be chained together to create a 4 bar pattern. Note entry can be quantized to one of 12 pre-defined scales. Patterns can be triggered and transposed via MIDI. Notes can also be entered via an attached MIDI keyboard.
