Sam Battle, aka Look Mum No Computer, shared this look at his latest DIY synth project, the Sega MegaDrive Synthesizer.
The Sega MegaDrive (marketed as the Sega Genesis in the US) is a 16-bit video game platform, introduced in 1988. The system creates sound using a Yamaha YM2612, a six-channel FM synth on a chip.
Battle’s Sega MegaDrive Synthesizer adds hardware controls for the chip’s synthesis parameters, resulting in a huge, but immediate and tactile synth.
