littleBits teamed up with KORG to build the first modular synthesizer that comes in a DIY Kit. Every part can be combined easily with each other using magnets. The kit is especially easy to use for those who want to get their first hands on modular analogue sounds and its a fun tool for experts to create music. This lightweight package weights about 600 grams and comes with a two oscillators, a random noise module, a Keyboard, a Micro Sequencer, an Envelope Filter, Delay, Mix, Split and a Synth Speaker. Of course you can include other littleBits parts into your arrangement. The littleBits Synth Kit is based on the KORG-Modell MS20 mini. Let’s see how this tool works!
You can preorder it here through the littleBits webshop. Prices are at $159 for the normal Synth Kit and $199 for the Deluxe Kit that comes with a lot more parts. Could be a nice christmas present for the gear junkies.
And now: wave your hands to Reggie Watts in this demo video!
Here are some sound samples from Soundcloud:
