Published on Sep 6, 2016 Supplyframe
Tim Trzepacz is the man behind SoftEgg & Rhythm Core Alpha. He also developed a modular keyboard design as you can see below.
"(S1 / E4) Supplyframe DesignLab opened its doors this July to four creative resident teams building hardware projects in Art, Design, Technology, and Science. The new series 'Open Source' follows DesignLab residents step by step in their creations. Episode 4 explores resident Tim Trzepacz and the creation of his music hardware synthesizer the NanoEgg. After successfully launching a software synth developed for the Nintendo, Tim has begun the journey creating a fully analog hardware synthesizers.
"'I also do crafty stuff like display stands for my product and portable stages and such,' Trzepacz says. 'I love performing, and will play music anywhere. I’m really active in the greater Los Angeles chiptune scene, and for that, I need to make interfaces to do stuff on Arduino and Propeller boards.'
Now with this multi-part design for a synthesizer controller keyboard, Trzepacz says he wanted to create a modular design which would allow designers to 3D print as many sections as they need."
