littleBits has demystified a traditional analog synthesizer, making it super easy for novices and experts alike to create music.

From the Beatles to Björk, legendary artists have used analog synthesizers to produce complex sounds and innovative music. For the first time ever, the littleBits Synth Kit will enable anyone to build their own sound machines with little to no engineering or musical knowledge. Included is a handy 35+ page booklet, with step-by-step instructions for 10 great projects like the Keytar and Synth Spin Table. You'll also receive a 9V battery + cable, everything you need to get started right out of the box.

12 modules that give you everything you need to make a powerful analong synthesizer: Power (w/ 9-volt battery), Oscillators (2), Keyboard, Microsequencer, Envelope, Random, Filter, Mix, Split, Delay, and Speaker.

littleBits Synth Kit Includes:

  • Oscillator, Filter, and Envelope: The oscillator module are the main sound source in the Synth Kit. They feature a"pitch" knob to adjust its output tone and a "tune" dial for adjusting the tuning when using with the keyboard. They also features a mode switch that selects between "square" and "saw" waveforms. The envelope module modifies the loudness contour of a sound. This envelope has two controls: "attack"and "decay". You can use its third bit-snap to trigger the envelope from different sources, like the keyboard. The filter has the most effect on the sound's character or timbre. Use it to brighten the sound. The "cutoff" knob sets the frequency to be emphasized, and the other controls peak.
  • Keyboard: Thekeyboard lets you play melodies- it features 13 switches that make up an entire octave of notes. It has two modes: "press" (which only produces output when you press a switch) and "hold" (which will hold the last note you played). It also features an octave control which changes the playable range. In addition to its main output, which is great for controlling our oscillators, it also has a "trigger out", which you can send to the "trigger in" of envelope or other littleBits modules.
  • Microsequencer:The micro sequencer sends out voltages based on the position of each of the four "step" knobs. Connect it to an oscillator and it will step through the "sequence" consecutively to make a melody (The LEDs tell you which step is active). Turn a knob all the way counter-clockwise to make the step silent. Use it in "speed" mode to set the speed using the dial, or flip the switch to "step" mode to use an input module like a pulse or button for control. In addition to its main output, it also has a trigger output, which you can send to any of your other Bits modules.
  • Mix: ThelittleBits mix module allows you to combine two inputs and send them to a single output. It also has a volume control for each of its inputs -- that's where the 'mixing' comes in. Use it to play two oscillators on a single speaker.
  • Speaker: Thesynth speaker amplifies your sonic explorations. You can control the volume with a dial at the front of the module. It also features an output jack that you can connect to headphones, an amplifier, or a computer. The speaker is connected with 3M DualLock so it can be removed from the circuit board. To reattach, simply press together firmly.
  • Customize your synth: The modular nature of littleBits with the magnetic connections allow you to quickly customize your synth to get the sounds you need in seconds. Use your synth on its own, multi-track it in your computer, or connect it to your other synthesizers and music equipment.

littleBits Synth Kit Features:

  • Modular analog synthesizer made up of 12 BitsTM modules that snap together with magnets to create circuits in seconds
  • Create amazing sounds right out of the box while learning the basics of analog synthesis
  • Project booklet with step-by-step instructions for creating a wide array of sound circuits and projects
  • Box transforms into a ready-to-use performance stationt hat can connect to recording or live sound equipment
  • Combine the little Bits Synth Kit with other little Bits modules to make expressive interfaces, or creations that span light, motion and sound.
