Twisted Electrons have announced two new synths. They tell us that hapiNes is a multitrack chiptune synthesizer inspired by the RP2A07 sound chip found in the NES games console while µAcid8 is a portable 8Bit bass-line synthesizer borrowing the characterful wavetable engine from acid8 and the essential elements of its highly praised step sequencer.
A spokesperson told us, "With hapiNES, the 4 voices allow you to create authentic sounding tunes in real time! µAcid8 features some new tricks including transposition automation, filter wobbler, stutter and vinyl spin-down effects. It requires only two AAA batteries and can be synced to external instruments and pocket operators."
