The $29 BassBoy MIDI Bass Synthesizer
Modders, tweakers, and benders will be delighted to hear about the arrival of a new digital midi synthesizer kit, called the BassBoy. This compact printed circuit board is small and seems to only have 1 audio jack on board. Created by MikroElektronika, its purpose is to generate monophonic bass lines from a direct MIDI input.
The unit is built from an oscillator which creates saw, and square waves using a limited number of wave tables. Although it is not very robust or modular in its basic form, it is capable of reproducing a wide enough array of midi notes to create something as complicated as the song in this demo.
