An interesting synth on eBay right now with 4 days to go.
This is a handmade Rockit synthesizer designed by Hackme Electronics and built from their circuit board. It is a monophonic digital-analogue hybrid using two 8 bit VCO’s through a digitally controlled analogue filter and VCA (with 2 LFO’s thrown in for good measure). All parameters are directly controllable on panel (and via midi cc). It is powered by 6 x AA batteries (rechargeables are fine). It weighs 1.8kg.

Interesting direction for Amplitube. Here’s what’s new in their app:
- Loop drummer module plays in sync with the recorder
- Preroll function added to recorder
You’ve probably seen this already, but I thought I’d post it more to ask what you think about it? Lots of sites and commentators are saying that it’s because of the Surface Pro and it’s just a reaction to that. I don’t think it’ll mean too much for mobile music except of course that you’re now able to carry even more in your iPad, but other than that not a great deal.
So is it a reaction to Microsoft? That’s not a very ‘Apple’ response.
Don’t forget that the KORG iPolysix is still at 50% off until 31st Jan. Don’t miss out.
A small but much requested update from Echo Pad:
- Main Looper now has feedback control, thanks to user requests!
- Added a low latency switch for better performance on older devices.
