Critter & Guitari Pocket Piano MIDI (NEW Seven-Mode, Hold)

This product is available for pre-order only

Click the button below to add the Critter & Guitari Pocket Piano MIDI (NEW Seven-Mode, Hold) to your wish list.


Product Description

The Pocket Piano is a fun, versatile synthesizer! It has seven synth modes, a rugged anodized aluminum and wood enclosure and 18 maple keys. It’s got a 3W built-in speaker and a line out audio jack. The Pocket Piano is perfect for making music in the studio, around a campfire and at your kitchen table!

The seven synth modes are:

• Vibrato Synth  
• Harmonic Sweeper
• Two-Octave Arpeggiator
• Octave Cascade
• Mono FM Synth
• FM Arpeggiator
• Mono Glider

To operate, turn it on and start playing keys. Use the Mode button to select modes. Depending on the mode, you can select from four wave forms (sine, square, triangle or sawtooth) or increase the octave with the auxiliary button. Each mode has two parameters that are controlled by the two left knobs. The tuning knob adjusts the keyboard over two octaves and the far right knob controls volume. The ‘Hold’ function maintains notes that are playing and frees up your hands for other musical tasks.

The MIDI option features two MIDI jacks for MIDI In/Out/Thru to interact with many other MIDI devices: drum machines, sequencers, computers, synthesizers, and other Pocket Piano MIDIs. It is both a sound module and a controller, sending and receiving MIDI note messages, and generating or syncing to MIDI clock signals.

As a sound module, the Pocket Piano MIDI responds to all 88 notes of a full size piano, so you can expand on the Pocket Piano's 16 note keyboard. Using an external controller, you can take advantage of the Pocket Pianos unique sounds and arpeggiators over a much larger range. Larger range = more fun!

But the fun doesn't stop there - the Pocket Piano MIDI also sends and receives MIDI clock, so you can synchronize the Pocket Piano's arpeggiators with your favorite drum machine, sequencer, or computer software. The Pocket Piano MIDI passes all received clock messages to its output, allowing you to chain many Pocket Pianos together to create an orchestra of Pocket Pianos.

Critter & Guitari - Pocket Piano MIDI Chain (01:59)
More information here: http://www.critterandguitari.com/pocket-piano The Pocket Piano MIDI is great to play on its own and even better when you chain a few together! This video demonstrates how easy it is to connect and play multiple Pocket Piano MIDIs. Plug the "MIDI Out" of one synth into the "MIDI In" of another, turn them on, and start playing! Repeat to add another Pocket Piano to the chain. Once they're connected you can create all sorts of multi-timbral sounds and complex arpeggiator patterns! The Pocket Piano MIDI's six modes can be used in any combination and can be changed at any time while you play. The other adjustable parameters of the Pocket Piano MIDI can be changed at will as well: volume, tuning, and the mode-specific parameters such as rate, depth, envelope, decay and waveform. This flexibility is powerful and fun! For example, 'organ'-type sounds can be created by setting the Pocket Pianos each to the red Vibrato Synth mode. Tuning the successive Pocket Pianos a third or a fifth above the previous one leads to some awesome harmonies. See the clip at 1:31 for an example of this. Another great setting is to select different arpeggiating modes across the Pocket Piano MIDI chain. This is very fun since one Pocket Piano's arpeggio can be 're-arpeggiated' by the next, leading to some very complex patterns/melodies! This kind of set up can be seen at 1:26. The Pocket Piano MIDI's seven sound modes: Vibrato Synth, Harmonic Sweeper, Two-Octave Arpeggiator, Octave Cascade, Mono FM Synth, FM Arpeggiator, & MONO Glider. Each mode is indicated by its own LED color . The Pocket Piano is housed in a sturdy aluminum and hardwood case and also includes MIDI In/Out/Thru, a built-in speaker, a 1/4" output jack, and wooden keys made for a refined touch. It can be powered both by a 9V battery or a wall wart (not included). Made in USA The air plants in the right hand corner are in an 'Air Pod' by our friends at: http://www.nicholasnewcomb.com/
