Thanks to _aa_ for bringing this to my attention. There has been a bit of a trend for tiny hand held synths, and _aa_ has pointed out three excellent examples.
LIFE 1 and 2 from Technomage
These beautiful looking synths are really tempting. I wish I’d known about the LIFE 1 earlier.
Next is the Little Blue Boy from Flower Electronics
A great design, but not cheap by any means.
Last, and by no means least is the bc16 miniature patch synth from Chimera Synthesis
I think I’ve posted on this before, but it is really worth a look.
I’m not going to go into detail about any of these, follow the links to take a look. I’ve you’ve played with any of them then please post a comment to let me know what they’re like.
