Chris Blarsky of Ninstrument has announced the Synthboy+ Special Edition – a new version that adds a voltage clock out from LSDJ.
Here’s what he has to say about the new Synthboy+ Special Edition:
The CLOCK OUT modification is the newest feature of the Synthboy+. This is included with our Special Edition model. The CLOCK OUT is a voltage out that can be used directly with most modular synthesizers. This clock out can be modified on the fly using the bottom two knobs on the front of the base station. This is used directly with LSDJ. Please watch the video for more details of use.
Our BIG BONUS is the included heavily modified Gameboy Color. Over the last few years I have grown to really appreciate the reliability and speed the Gameboy Color provides. I truly believe it is the best tool to use with LSDJ. The original Gameboy Color did need a couple of modifications in order to bring it into the Synthboy+ line. First we added a front light SP mod, which essentially takes the front light out of a Gameboy SP, cut it to size and fit it which allows a overall brighter screen for daily use.
The real challenge was to find a way to add the 9 pin din connector. We ended up custom molding a new bottom using Polyester resin. Between the nylon DB9 connector and polyester resin molding you can expect durable use over the years.

Does anyone really use LSDJ? Demo sounds cool, but is there not a VST for free you can use to get these sounds?
Yes there are plenty of VST’s and apps that does that (even I made one called the P/NES Lofi Monster). But still sometimes its fun to play on the real thing.
I REEEAAALLLLLLYYY just want a chiptunes volca. Something with a fun reliable and intuitive interface.
I would just love a chiptune Volca. This would be an instant buy for me.
isn’t that what the roland a-01 is with the 8 bit synth, sequencer, etc?
