Checking out the brand new Atmegatron synthesizers from Soulsby. It’s a crazy little desktop synth with tons of waveforms, 15 filter types, the ability to upload your own waveforms, and even change or hack the OS to turn it into a totally different synthesizer! It has a very different front panel so we go through the layout as well as the sounds and I even show you a few of the unreleased OS versions as well as the official Atcyclatron OS which turns it into a wavetable cyclling synth!

Opening titles for Europe In 8 Bits documentary.
Direction, Design, Animation & Music: Device
EUROPE IN 8 BITS is a documentary directed by Javier Polo that explores the world of chip music, a new musical trend that is growing exponentially throughout Europe. The stars of this musical movement reveal to us how to reuse old videogames hardware like Nintendo’s GameBoy, NES, Atari ST, Amiga and the Commodore 64 to turn them into a tool capable of creating a new sound, a modern tempo and an innovative musical style. This is a new way of interpreting music performed by a great many artists who show their skills in turning these “limited” machines designed for leisure in the 80’s into surprising musical instruments and graphical tools. It will leave nobody indifferent.

Soulsby Synthesizers has released the Atmegatron – a new 8-bit monosynth. It’s the debut product from Soulsby Synthesizers.

Googlish from Japanese:
“8bit Harmonica by Fufu NES
It is a harmonica that you can play the 8bit sound.
Office workers to challenge electronic work Good luck Saturday and Sunday.
Site that show, what you moved somehow.
“I try to harmonica, the NES that was a long time ago Fufu well. I was particular that using the sound chip which is used for the NES of fact, it sounds like more NES. Harmonica sound high as it goes from left to right sound, I made three types of harmonica melody of the game indulge in the good feeling harmonica ringing and sound effects Koin ♪, and wherever you blowing blows.”

SUPER PSG VST IS OUT NOW! Full SPECS in the free user manual (on the website).
SPSG is not simply an ultra accurate SN76489 emulator, it adds many extended features to squeeze to most of the sound chip and a huge user friendly GUI! It is a fantastic synth suitable for chip music and SEGA nostalgic pleasure and also a powerful 8-bit tool for modern music production.
“It is a fantastic synth suitable for chip music and SEGA nostalgic pleasure and also a powerful 8-bit tool for modern music production. The SN76489 PSG was the natural buddy of YM2612 FM chip on the Sega Megadrive console but it was the principal and only sound chip of the legendary Sega Master System. I grew up playing some great games on the Master System too. So, I thought it also deserves the same kind of attention and accuracy I did with the FMDrive VSTi. You may think, the SN76489 chip is basically square waves & noise… but there is more…clever programming tricks can unlock some awesome potential!”
