The Chipophone is a homemade 8-bit synthesizer inside an organ!

The Chipophone is a homemade 8-bit synthesizer, especially suited for live chiptune playing. It has been built inside an old electronic organ. All the original tone generating parts have been disconnected, and the keys, pedals, knobs and switches rerouted to a microcontroller which transforms them into MIDI signals. Those are then parsed by a second microcontroller, which acts as a synthesizer. You can find more information about how the organ was modified on the making of page.
