Mixtape Alpha Crowdfuning for Re-Release

"Mixtape Alpha is currently crowdfunding on Portland, Ore. based Crowd Supply ( Mixtape Alpha is a re-release of our pocket-sized 8-bit synth. Complete with four voices, four effects, five-note polyphony, record, playback, and more! (click through for additional details & video)

Mixtape Alpha has:

· a stylophone style input for continuous tone generation

· six buttons for discrete notes

· four voices

· four effects

· five-note polyphony

Loop. Play. Record.

You are able to loop a pattern and play a second part on top. But, the best of all, you can record the songs you make. Trade Mixtapes with your friends! Each Mixtape Alpha will come in its own cassette case, with instructions.

Open Source Design

If you want to dig into the guts of this 8-bit synth, check out the wiki page. You will find all the schematics and code, and we even have a Pure Data patch for making your own wavetables.

The project is based on the same processor used in the Arduino (the ATmega328p), and all of the source code is online, so it can be hacked to make even crazier sounds than we came up with.

Thank you for considering posting this project!
