Details in via the creator of miniMO:

"Just wanted to let you know of a modular synthesizer I'm developing, miniMO. It's 8-bit, open-everything, and I've designed both a PCB-based version and a 3D printed version where everything is printed except for the components, including the breadboard (no soldering skills required).

You can take a look at both models here, and here, listen to some demos here, and all the code, designs, and parts are available both through github and thingiverse.

I built miniMO with the aim to make a modular system as affordable as possible, so that people, especially kids, can see what it is about. All the modules have an ATtiny85 at their core, and it is very easy to program them with the Arduino IDE. Also, the modules are all identical: if you have three units, you can program three oscillators, or one oscillator, one LFO and one filter, or any other combination of the available programs. I have already programmed all the (in my opinion) basic synthesis blocks, and I'm actively developing new ones."

Very cool!
