What once started out in laboratories of scientists and nerds, with the goal to mimic the sound of instruments, soon become an indispensable asset to the music industry: The synthesizer. Therefore our fifth clip is dedicated to this ground breaking, technological invention.
Using the appropriate emulators we composed an engineering hymn specifically for this clip. The visuals were created by reconstructing the original synthesizers (Minimoog, Roland-TR 808, Roland SH-101, Akai MPC2000XL) using the individual components of an iPhone 6 and a Nexus 5, which were in turn animated frame by frame. The sheet highlights display the actual operated controllers and buttons. Enjoy!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
