Forget what you think you know about synthesizers: this, from mayojaster, is something (as far as we’re aware) completely new. Instead of using samples, or square waves generated by something like a 555 chip, it uses what the maker calls a ‘bytebeat’, which is software that generates a fractal that the synthesizer can use to generate sounds.

We can’t vouch for the maths behind the sounds, but we can tell you that we like the way it looks, and we like the way it sounds. If you want one, buy it from Tindie, unless you’re in a recently post-Brexit country, where you’re best off ordering from mayojaster’s own website so they can calculate the VAT properly.
