Let your musical creativity flow with this genre-defying drum synthesiser! This fantastic device rides the boundaries between a sequencer, a synthesiser, and a drum machine – doing awesome generative stuff for your music! If you need some new and intriguing sound textures, the ARCANE Generative FM Drum Synth is just the instrument for you.
Featuring six potentiometers and three high-quality buttons, ARCANE is controlled by the ever-useful Arduino Nano, and can be delivered either fully assembled or as a fun DIY kit. Find your groove by modulating the sounds using the on-board controls – flipping through generative sequences and transforming them into something new! The inbuilt glitch musicality knob is essential for choosing the kind of sounds you want this instrument to deliver – is it a drum, or a synth?ARCANE is based on the iconic Yamaha YM2413 FM chip – originally used to create the arcade machine sounds that audiophiles obsess over these days! It even has CV (control voltage) compatible clock in and clock out jacks, meaning you can combine this with any other modular gear! Check out the video below to hear some of the incredible sounds this thing can make.
