Portable synth power has recently become one of the most interesting fields in music technology.
From analog drum machines to polyphonic synths, there have never been so many options to bring a fully equipped studio wherever you go. Bitty is a new pocket drum machine and synthesizer that promises serious bang for your buck. Its speaker is typically used for car door panels and is made from aluminum, so you’ll be able to pump up your jams loud no matter where you are.
Bitty boasts 12-bit sample output, as well as sine, square, saw and triangle waves—plus a noise generator for those who like things nice and gritty. Loaded with packs including theremin, techno, trap and lo-fi sounds, the little machine’s sound packs a serious punch. With 4-voice polyphony, four different filter settings and arpeggiation, it’s crazy to think the thing can run on a couple of AAA batteries.
Check out how the Bitty works in the videos above, and listen to tracks made exclusively on the Bitty below. The project is being crowd-funded over at Kickstarter now.
