The Wired Heart is a fun mini synthesizer, which can be modified using external components such as potentiometers or photocells. A small bag full of components is included.
The Wired Heart features six sensors which allows you to allows you to control different functions.
There are two master oscillators which control two slave oscillators each. The left slaves are amplitude modulated. The upper right slave is modulated by hardsync and the other slave on the right is frequency modulated by the master to create a tremolo effet.
The stereo line output jack also doubles as on/off switch. If nothing is plugged in, Wired Heart is in a low power standby mode
Each oscillator of the Wired Heart comes with an extension port to connect more electronics. The kit comes with three LEDs, three photoresistors and a potentiometer, all of which can be connected to the ports. By using the photoresistors, the oscillators will react to light. This can be your hand covering an existing light source, a flashlight you shine on the Heart or the light from one or more of the LEDs. Potentiometers can be used to set an oscillator to a fixed pitch, or control them by hand with more precision.
Berlin-based Tobias Münzer is the mastermind behind Tubbutec, who not only provides retro-fits for vintage synths (Roland Juno-6, SH-101, etc.), but impressed with his microtonal modular multitool µTune, which among other gazillion functions is capable of reading and writing Scala .scl files.
