The littleBits Synth Kit should soon be easier to find and try out.
Korg lets us know that they’re working with littleBits to expand the distribution of the Synth Kit in the music industry.
The Synth Kit, introduced at the end of 2013, is a modular synth building kit. It shares the form factor of littleBits’ library of electronic modules, which snap together to let build your own creations.
The Synth Kit, based in part on vintage Korg circuits, expanded the littleBits system into music, letting users build their own sound machines (with signal generators, modifiers, modulators and controllers). With this announcement, Korg is expanding distribution of the system into the music industry channel, according to Korg brand manager James Sajeva.
Info on the Synth Kit is available at the littleBits site.
