In the video you can see our proof of concept of a hardware sound-tracker-synthesizer. The first part shows the sequencer screen and then the patternscreen, where after some editing the audio starts. As audio engine (audio-hardware will be assignable) we use the code of the popular 8bit style synthesizer ATMegatron from Soulsby Synthesizers. http://www.soulsbysynths.com
The NerdSynth is in a very early development stage. So they are some glitches here and there. But in general, it shows what to expect in the future. We will add high quality audio very soon.
The NerdSynth is a project by Thomas Margolf and Jan Trompper. The ATMegatron is a Paul Soulsby product.
