New Products to aid benders

NTH Music Synthesizer Available for Purchase at Kickstarter.com


Our good friends John Highlyliquid.com and Kevin Sineqube.com from Columbus, OH spent much time designing a neat little synthesizer. Now they are looking to manufacture some units and release the design as Open Source. We hope that this project will be of interest to you and perhaps even receive your support.

February 2, 2012: The NTH is a fun-to-use, sonically-rich, hackable music synthesizer. It features digital oscillators, an analog low-pass filter, an integrated step sequencer, MIDI I/O, and simple, intuitive controls.

Upon successful funding, production of the NTH will begin and the entire design will be open-sourced.

Audio examples, product photos, and additional documentation can be found at the NTH website:

Vintage Telephone Headset Microphone

The concept is fairly simple when it comes to making a microphone out of a speaker element. Once connected to an output jack and hit with audio waves the speaker coil will vibrate  generating AC current. After connecting to an amplifier this current will be transformed back into audio waves. These Telephone Headset Microphones are usually available during our live shows on tour, however now you can get one from the GetLoFi.com/shop. Another example of reusing outdated technology such as a land line telephone receiver in a creative way.
