"***this is a one of a kind item - - 1 Available***

The PolyKey/Distortion Synthesizer is an experimental Lo-Fi sound device that explores the unpredictable realm of 'data type' distortion.

when the 'data distort' control is at 0 (far right knob), the device functions as a polyphonic 5-voice wavetable synthesizer. each voice has it own key button and a microtonal pitch control knob above.
decay control for the 5 enveloped voices (top knob) and 40 waveform shapes are available to shuffle between using the wave button (directly under decay control knob)

the data distort control "inflates" the audio data stream and also adjusts the threshold (or data type) in which the sound data can 'overflow' . this overflowing of data causes drastic frequency modulation and unpredictable wave folding. these effects and percussion type sounds can be explored using the 5 pitch control knobs above each voice key and by switching between the 40 unique waveform shapes.

audio output - 1/8 inch "headphone style" jack
power - mini USB cable included

-ships out same day!

***this device is a one of a kind*** as i continue to explore the sound synth possibilities of the atmega 328 microprocessor, i will have various one of a kind development models (prototypes) for sale."
