8Bit Mixtape NEO is not just an affordable, fancy lo-fi Synthesizer but is customizable with new music codes
To be honest, I really enjoy little synths that enrich the music instrument world with new sound characters. One of you should not miss is the 8Bit Mixtape NEO Synthesizer. It’s a DIY 8-bit lo-fi synth that is based on a Arduino-compatible ATTINY85. It features 2 pots, 2 buttons for parameters and 8 addressable RGB Neo-pixel for visual feedback.
Cool here is that this little synth is updatable with your own .wav files. This allows you to create your own instrument with your sound flavour. At the moment, you can find mixtapes that transforms this instrument in a 8-bit drum machine, a pitch shifter and more. Very interesting little instrument in my opinion that makes lovers of 8-bit music happy.
- ARDUINO-COMPATIBLE – The high-performance, low-power Microchip 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller combines 8KB ISP flash memory, 512B EEPROM, 512-Byte SRAM, 6 general purpose I/O lines
- TINY AUDIO BOOT – The key feature of the new 8Bit Mixtape is the easiness of uploading new codes using an audio communication protocol, means just playing a .wav sound file from your computer/smart phone (or walkman).
- NEOPIXEL-LED – The key feature of the new 8Bit Mixtape is the easiness of uploading new codes using an audio communication protocol, means just playing a .wav sound file from your computer/smart phone (or walkman).
Create New Synths With NeoBlock
The developer also announced the NeoBlock platform, a software application that allows you to design your own synth sound by using drag and drop. All this can be done in a simple visual programming interface.
The 8Bit Mixtape Neo is now available as a DIY project, starting at 65 Euro.
