As the intro to the new Gecho LoopSynth on Kickstarter says - "Mental benefits of music are well known" - we knew that already right?
The Gecho Loop Synth has a pair of sensitive microphones which are in term fed into a series of variable resonant filters modified by various circuit mounted sensors - touch, magnetic and infra-red which results in floaty ambient textures. Whats interesting is that Gecho Loop Synth is being sold as a relaxation tool. Currently running on Kickstarter and already funded, it has till Janary 23rd to run. Expected delivery March 2017.
In addition to the mic inputs, you can also send in line level signals, making it possible to use this as an effect generator too.
€55 gets you a mostly assembled DIY kit, €85 a board and box kit and €128 the finished item in a wooden box.
