ByteBeat Synth

BT110 is a standalone synthesizer based on bytebeat synthesis. You can edit your own formula, save it and explor the bytebeat universe. You can also sampling a sequence to modify more parameters as the begining, the end and the speed. The sequencer mode will allow you to load different formulas on the eaches 16 steps and play with many parameters too.

We consider the BT110 as a fun experiment tool around this rare kind of synthesis. The case is 3D printed as the keycaps and knobs. That's why the surface is irregular.

On the side there are development pins to allow some module like more control, video output, analog signal processing... So much things are possible. We are open to many advice or idea. Moreover updating the device is possible remotely so the software can constantly evolve !!
