Duophonic Macchiato Mini Synth

Duophonic Macchiato Mini Synth

Zeppelin Design Labs show us their new product. It’s a mini-synth influenced with Stylophone and based on Arduino components. The machine features its duophonic sound at an incredibly low price.

This tiny instrument is called Macchiato Mini Synth. It sports a built-in 13-note touch keyboard, on-board speaker and 8 knobs for sound shaping. The device offers Mozzi Sound Synthesis Library for Arduino. It’s also an open source platform so it can modify the source code transfering it to the synth brain which helps to create complex algorithmic sounds.

There are 2 Macchiato versions: the cheapest one will cost you $39 and a day to assemble it. You can have a ready-made device as well for $96. Both of them are available for order at the official Zeppelin Design Labs shop.
