ToneMatrix Touch

This is a touch-based synthesizer made as a student project. It's based on a flash synthesizer of the same name.

I don't really understand how it works or is controlled... Check the video to see for yourself!

The Optigan resurrected!

The Optigan was a 1970's organ based on optical rotating discs. In fact, it was much more than just an organ: it was more like a sampler. You could even play pre-recorded beats with it and more. The problem is that the Optigan is very rare nowadays. However, the discs are still available...

...so Gan at gaje.jp decided to make his own Optigan. Very impressive!

Here's the video!
