Error Instruments Invader Box chiptune synthesizer for blasting aliens and making arcade tunes
The latest box to blast off from the Error Instruments laboratory is the Invader Box chiptune synthesizer full of alien noises, arcade beeps and heaps of glitchy character.
I love a good Error Instruments user manual. This one seems to say that you should twiddle the knobs and bash the buttons – fair enough! That’s really all you need to know.
Basically it’s a box of vintage game sounds with three knobs that will tweak the sound generating algorithms. There are a pair of buttons to step through the algorithms and a CV input that probably controls something.
They say it’s very good at minimal blips, microtones, experimental glitches and stuff like that and who are we to argue?
It can run off a 9v battery, has a single mono output and looks really nice. Sounds like a complete riot – check this out:
It’s out on the 15th May at which point the price will be revealed. Mental – love it!
Ooh, chiptunes – yet again.
When will it end?
