There’s nothing like the experience of playing a Eurorack-style modular synthesizer. Working with these instruments is a tactile experience like no other, bringing a physicality to the spacey vibe of synthesized sounds. But if you’re stuck with a small work area, or you want to experiment before jumping in to filling up your living room with equipment, here’s Synthspace, a VR Eurorack-style modular synthesizer. Here’s more from Synthtopia:
“Synthspace is my attempt to capture the physicality of a modular synthesizer, while adding in all sorts of magical bits that are only possible in a virtual world,” notes [developer Markus Hofer]. “VR is the exciting part, but I want to create an instrument that is fun and flexible and ready whenever you need it.”

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.
