The Chipophone — an 8-Bit Chiptune Organ

adunk writes “Linus Åkesson has built an 8-bit synthesizer inside an old electric organ case. ‘All the original tone-generating parts have been disconnected, and the keys, pedals, knobs and switches rerouted to a microcontroller which transforms them into MIDI signals. Those are then parsed by a second microcontroller, which acts as a synthesizer.’ The Chipophone is perfect for playing classics such as the Super Mario Bros in-game music or Rob Hubbard’s Spellbound. A description of the build process, with photos, is available.”
