Behold the Pianocade! It’s a Chiptunes synthesizer and MIDI controller built in Canada using arcade machine parts with a custom circuit board and enclosure. As seen above, it’s available in both 13- and 25-key configurations. There’s more to it than that, so hit up the Pianocade website for all the details.
Why is this being posted here, apart from it being incredibly cool? Because the Pianocade will be used by performers Killah Tape at Nerd Noise Night, so attendees will get to see and hear it first-hand.
For those who want to see and hear (and perhaps even try) the Pianocade before Nerd Noise Night, Bento Miso is holding a free event on August 15. Just head on over to their site and register to attend and you could be one of the first people in the world to experience the Pianocade!
