Patchblocks Unveil minijam studio


Based on the idea that you can take a music studio or live performance setup and boil it down to a range of very compact and affordable products, the minijam studio includes a drum machine, a wavetable synth, a mixer and an analogue filter.

Here's some information from the press release:

"The project started in early 2016 with the idea of creating something that still follows the Patchblocks philosophy in terms of accessibility, affordability and fun. Feedback from customers and retailers pointed to something more hardware, less software. The result was not just one single unit, it ended up in a whole product line, which combines a lot of different studio hardware in a small size.

minijam is based on the idea of what happens when you boil down a hardware studio or live performance setup to very compact and affordable products. Maybe compromising pro-features, but not compromising the enjoyment of noodling and jamming with such machines.

The studio includes a drum machine, a wavetable synthesiser, an analog filter, a mixer and a speaker.It gives you the feel of jamming with hardware equipment, all bundled in a ready-to-use set with impressive sound. Each device is powered by a rechargeable battery and can be used standalone or as part of the set. You don't need any software or mobile phone. The mixer keeps all connected devices synchronised and also allows for the integration of other hardware with it's sync triggers on the second channel of the stereo connectors. (e.g. Pocket Operators, Volcas,etc.)"
