Portmanteau Devices Pianocade is designed to sound, look, and feel like vintage arcade games 10/09/12
The Pianocade is a synthesizer designed to sound, look, and feel like vintage arcade games. Its designers say that it's easy for people who want to dive right in, powerful and feature-rich for people who want to tinker, and fun to play for everyone.
They tell us that, with synthesis hardware based off of classic gaming systems and a 128-note range, the Pianocade lets you perform the retro sounds you want, live and that, with traditional 5-pin MIDI and USB MIDI, you can use the Pianocade to control other instruments, or use external sequencers and controllers to play the Pianocade.
