Audioweld Synthwatch is the world’s first wristwatch Synthesizer with an built-in keyboard that interacts with an dedicated app on your mobile device!
To be in vogue, a smartwatch like an Apple Watch is an important accessory in 2018. But who is not a friend of these computer clocks but more a Synthesizer friend, should look at the Synthwatch. For a long time the Synthesizer communities laughed at Synthesizer watches like the KORG Kronos or Moog Music Patch Watch on April 1st. Now there is a real one!
Audioweld from Italy has launched today the Kickstarter campaign for the Synthwatch, the first world’s first wristwatch Synthesizer. It has a build in engine that allows you to play/record everywhere you want. With an addition app, you can add wirelessly effects as well as sequencer to your tracks. On the clock interface is a 1-octave long keyboard with which you can play notes. Certainly a challenge. It will be interesting to see how this campaign will end.
How many times has it happened to you to have a melody in your head without being able to get rid of it or… to express it somehow? Our team has been seeking to develop a portable device that doesn’t need heavy machinery and long cables, easy to wear, user friendly and at the same time professional, ready to be used outdoors or inside a pro studio. Why not a wristwatch? That’s how the Synthwatch® idea was born. Two years of development can be transformed in reality with your help.
The Synthwatch® is a portable synthesizer that allows you to express yourself in every moment of your life. Its main function is real-time play that makes you able to create music, to record it and to add effects synthesized through the app (designed for iOS and Android users). The solid Titanium Grade 5 watch case is extremely lightweight and is designed to hold perfectly such a piece of technology.
The Synthwatch keys are meant to be pressed by every kind of finger size. Moreover, the usb cable is equipped with a three and a half millimetres female jack which can be used to connect your Synthwatch to every kind of sound speaker or amplifier. With the help of the app you can select the sequencer function and make your own music from A to Z! No time anymore? No worries! You can save both recordings and sequencer and come back to it when you have time!
