The Chipophone


DZComposer

Recommended Posts

Linus Åkesson created something that should warm the heart of any fan of 8-bit games and 8-but game music: The Chipophone. It is a modified electronic organ transformed into a synthesizer with 2 manuals and a pedalboard capable of producing all of the classic 8-bit sounds.

This thing is awesome! I want one! Too bad he isn't selling them. Also, I don't have room for it.

Oh well, there's always Plogue's 8-bit softsynth...

The closest thing I can think of to it would be to take a couple of keyboards and a MIDI pedalbord and arrange them like an organ, and hook them up via MIDI to a computer running this: http://www.plogue.com/?page_id=43

Nice! :yes:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves those old music scores and sounds.
