GND 1T Patch Page Basics

video upload by GND-1

"Here's the first of what I hope will be a series of short instructional demos of the new GND-1T speech chip synthesizer released last month. Over 5000 hours in the making, it's a beast of a synth with a highly unique architecture. Like its predecessor the GND-1, the 1T is based on an accurate emulation of the speech chip inside the popular Speak and Spell game, but goes way beyond anything that's possible in hardware.

The design of the new version is heavily geared towards hands-on performance without necessarily needing a computer, and includes a USB host port for minimal setups. But it's equally well suited to a DAW setup with its full parameter set available over MIDI. It now also includes built in effects and drum kits, assignable encoders, a touch screen, and full analog and USB audio I/O.

Everything you hear in these demos is a direct stereo stream recorded from the GND-1T, without any additional processing or effects.

This first video focuses on the main Patch Page screen, where you control the way patches are manipulated in real time. For more information (and to download the user manual), see

p.s. I recommend you click the youtube settings icon and adjust resolution to 720 rather than 'auto' in order to best see the screen details on the 1T"

Speak and Glitch GND-1 circuit bent speech chip synthesizer

video upload by GND-1

"Here's a short promo for our new Speak& Glitch GND-1, a Circuit Bent Speech Chip Synthesizer unlike any other. Based on an accurate emulation of the speech chip inside the popular Speak and Spell game, the GND-1 pushes into previously impossible circuit bending realms letting you create loops, rhythms and synth sounds in totally new ways.

In addition to the stereo audio output from the synth chip, the MIDI-out rhythm generator on the GND-1 was driving a software 808 drum machine. But it can drive any midi compatible device, whether it's software, hardware, or even mechanical, both via USB midi and a dedicated 5-pin DIN connector.

See for more info.

p.s. the 'flickering' OLED display on the GND-1 in the video is just a video artifact."
