Syntaxis Micromodular has introduced new system for building DIY synthesizers out of ready-made subcircuits.
The circuits are available in the form of micromodules, sharing uniform signal and control voltage standards.
The modules are open source. For now, there are basic modules in production (power, VCO, VCA, ADSR, VCF, LFO).
A key advantage of the platform, according to the developers, is the ‘ridiculously low price’. For example, the uVCO module shown above is priced at about $42 USD.
