‘SynthVR’ Lets You Build a Massive Modular Synthesizer in VR #MusicMonday
Fans of Modular Synthesizers have seen some massive setups, but size might be hampered by cost or space. Now SynthVR lets you make the massive modular synthesizer of your dreams. Here’s more from Road to VR:
Granted, just because you’re given free reign with a bunch of useful kit doesn’t mean you’ll be able to make interesting or novel sounds right away; you’ll need to either know what you’re doing from the get-go, or learn a bit about synths from trial and error as you progress. In short, it can get complicated pretty quickly.
The open alpha of SynthVR is free, and currently supports SteamVR headsets through a direct download on itch.io, and Oculus Quest via SideQuest. To get started playing on Quest, check out how (and why) to use SideQuest, the unofficial sideload app store.

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.
