This Synthesizer Is Built From A Wooden Toy Piano

In this video, we watch a demo of the Vintage Toy Synthesizer, a full-fledged polyphonic synthesizer built from a wooden toy piano. Created by synth enthusiast and technologist Liam Lacey, the synth received 1st place in the Element14 Music Tech Design Challenge.

Features

  • 2-voice digital synthesiser with true polyphony
  • 5 oscillators with dedicated waveforms
  • State-Varible-Filter with independent LP, HP, BP and Notch mix controls
  • Amplitude and Filter ADSR envelopes
  • Two modulation sources (LFO and keyboard velocity) with three destinations, each with independent bipolar depth controls
  • Digital distortion FX
  • Changeable scales on the keyboard
  • ‘Vintage’ parameter for replicating old/broken analogue synth voices
  • Full MIDI I/O integration
  • Polyphonic Aftertouch expression (MIDI-out only)
  • Charming miniature grand piano form

Something that’s awesome about the Vintage Toy Piano is that it’s not just a digital synth, but a fully-functional MIDI controller as well. You can watch how this feature in action in the video below.
