Synthesizer Saturday: Kickststarter For Rad Synth-Tracker


This kickstarter campaign for a rad synth-tracker is just over halfway to it’s goal with 10 days left. It’s hybrid analog/digital and has both built-in controls and MIDI capability.

The ST4 is a unique device that combines a powerful hybrid analog/digital synthesizer with a 16-bit style tracker music machine. It has digital oscillators backed up with sampling for versatility, with analogue VCF’s and VCA’s for character. It’s packed with features, yet these are almost all usable hands-on with dedicated knobs and buttons. It’s usable stand-alone for live gigs but also mountable in a standard 19″ rack, and fully MIDI controllable.

The project was conceptualized by STU, a Swiss-based chiptune/synthpunk musician (Bandcamp), with further engineering by Tasty Chips Electronics. Pledging ends February 17.
