8-bit sound fans, rejoyce! Twisted Electrons have something new in store for you. Some months ago they introduced hapiNes, a multitrack chiptune synthesizer inspired by the RP2A07 sound chip found in the NES games console.
The ultra-affordable (€99!), barebone design (similar to Teenage Engineering’s PO line), might not be everybody’s cup of tea though. This is probably why Twisted Electrons have just teased a new, desktop version of hapiNes.
Here are the main features of hapiNes desktop version:
Hardware MIDI input (sync, notes and parameter modulation)
Analog trigger sync in and out
USB-MIDI input (sync, notes and parameter modulation)
