"At Superbooth 2024, We Noise Makers unveiled their latest creation, PGB-1 a pocket groove box designed by *Fabien*. This compact device offers six synthesizer voices and two samplers, all in a portable and battery-powered form factor. The device features various tracks for different sounds, one of the tracks being polyphonic, a sequencer with 16-step patterns, song mode, probability-based triggers, parameter locks and more. Additionally, it includes USB-C for charging and data transfer, audio output, stereo audio input, MIDI in and out, TRS-A, and an onboard microphone for creating custom samples.

The standout feature of this pocket groove box is its open-source nature, allowing users to add more synth engines and customize the firmware. With plans to expand the ecosystem and potentially introduce new devices in the future, We Noise Makers aims to create a community-driven platform for music production. The crowdfunding campaign on crowd supply has been successfully funded, giving backers the opportunity to support the project before it ends on May 30th.
