When I was a prog rock-loving teen, I dreamed about building a synthesizer from a kit or owning a commercial model. I would drool over ads for Sequential Circuits and Arp synths in music magazines.
In this video, Allison of Bell Tone Synth Works shows off two (count ’em, TWO) Prophet 10 synths that she recently restored and added MIDI to.
She gives us a tour of the repairs and then demos the synths, MIDI-chained together, and running through a Hawk HE-2150 for some lovely stereo tape echo. 20 voices, 40 oscillators, big fun! It’s like playing four Prophet 5s at the same time.
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.
