Organelle: The Portable Open-Source Synthesizer
The Organelle, an eye-catching synthesizer produced by Critter & Guitari, is definitely something work checking out. Running on an open source sound engine known as Pure Data, you have the ability to load virtually any patch you want, from drum machines to synthesizers to samplers and more. You also have the ability to manipulate patches on the device or on a computer.
The heart of the Organelle undoubtedly lies in the previously mentioned sound engine, Pure Data, allowing users to intuitively alter patches on-screen. Not only this, but users can then share and download these patches on a site called Patchstorage. Sharing sounds has never been more popular, but its even more interesting to witness the free exchange of synth patches.
