The MIDIvampire-I is a 4-voice, polyphonic synth that is powered from the MIDI data line. So just plug in and play, no batteries required! There are 16 onboard wave tables to choose from, along with attack, decay, FM, AM, reverb, and other effects to shape the sounds to your liking. The output is 14b, 31.25ksps, so it doesn’t sound half bad for its size.
The MIDIvampire-II is a 4 voice drum machine that is powered from the MIDI data line. It has 2 wavetable voices for making kick drums, toms, wood blocks, bells, and a host of other sounds. There is a voice set aside for hi-hats and cymbals, and another which is a filtered noise source, which can make snares and hollow-tube sounds. Each voice has separate attack, decay, and release, along with frequency sweep, and a bunch of other effects for warping the sounds to fit all your percussive needs. And, there are independent outputs for each voice.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
