T-APE: A Glistening Granular Gadget

Pocket-sized fractal-inspired sound generation      28/09/21

The makers of the Gecho Loopsynth are back at it again with a stunning little sound generation unit in the guise of a cassette tape, hence the name: T-APE. It uses a 'BitByte' engine which the makers say incorporates fractal-inspired sound generation, using maths to generate metallic tones, arpeggios and smooth audio mangling. It sounds lo-fi and crunchy, with some shimmering high harmonics. 

The T-APE has 2MB of space for on-board samples, which can be loaded via USB - with obligatory animal sounds pre-loaded. It looks and sounds like a lot of fun, and it's always nice to see a company which thinks outside the box. 

A detailed video on programming it is available here:
