“XT Synth is a mix of synthesizer, guitar, violin and midi controller. My inspiration was to make an instrument that could be played like a guitar, with the expression of a violin, with the sounds of a classic synthesizer. The neck has 4 soft potentiometers that can be played similar to an string instrument. They can be tuned however the player wants. Because instead of strings it has soft pots, the instrument is not tempered, like a violin, allowing vibratos, portamentos, and microtones. There are still some glitches to be solved and lots of improvements to be made, but the first version is alive!”
We are holding out for an actual song played on this instrument before giving our final verdict, but damned if it isn’t a novel idea and fun to look at.
