Creator Skot Wiedmann shared this new video that demonstrates performance options for his Hyve Touch Synthesizer – a 60-note polyphonic analog synthesizer with 3-axis touch control.
The Hyve Touch Synthesizer has, to date, been made available as an inexpensive DIY project at synth building workshops. Some of the features of the Hyve board include: control for timbre and octave, chord groups (major and minor), pitch bends, easily tune-able and portable board (runs on 9V battery or 6-15V AC adapter) with an audio jack.
Wiedmann told us that he plans on having a website up for this later this summer and is also considering a crowdfunding project to fund production of a finished version of the Hyve Touch Synth.
