Designer Aaron B, aka SynthFarm, let us know about the new Primatone synthesizer – a unique wooden touch bar synthesizer.
It’s designed to be simple to use, but also capable of being used as a serious tool for stage and studio.
Here’s how it works:
The 6 wooden touch bars across the instrument are ‘super’ touch sensitive.
The 4 touch bars to the right are the -play- bars. These act similar to piano keys – musical notes are triggered when the bars are touched, tapped, pressed, or played. Unlike a piano, though, each of the 4 play bars can be tuned independently.
The bars are tuned using the tuning bars to the left.
- The synth is powered by a 32-Bit Cortex M-4 Processor.
- 44.1khz Sample Rate (CD Quality Sound) (16-Bit)
- Specialized Internal Headphone Pre-Amp Outputs sound at Line-Level
- Hand-Made from naturally fallen logs, so wood varies from synth to synth
- Powered by 3xAA Batteries – Over 8 Hours of Operation Time at Full Volume
- Backed by a One Year Full Warranty
