Some software synths are really amazing. Anyway, to be honest: i prefer hardware instruments.Continue reading Zynthian @ Ivan Monterosso
A few months ago, we started the integration of a new engine in zynthian. This time it was something special as it was the first zynthian engine integrated by somebody else (Mr. Holger Wirtz, aka @C0d3man) and it wasn’t a free software engine, but a commercial product, with a privative license. Somebody could think that this is not well aligned with the spirit of zynthian project, so … why to do it?
Greetings from the sunny BCN, where today the rain fall over and tomorrow the air will smell clean and healthy 🙂
It’s been a hard month preparing the new SD image, but finally it’s here. Its name is Gorgona!
If you already have a Zynthian Box, i’m pretty sure you would like to try Gorgona right now. You can choose between two different versions, compiled for RBPi3 and RBPi2:
As I said in the previous post, we have been very busy the past few weeks working in the new website and a short video presentation for Zynthian, among others.
Finally, both tasks are finished … or almost finished. There are still things to improve and details to fix, of course, but we will do it on the way. We don’t want to wait more time. Here is the video:
Also, we have a new GitHub site, with a better structure and reorganized repositories:
In the next days, i will introduce you the new Zynthian Emulator …
IMPORTANT: The information in this post is outdated. Please, if you want a guide for mounting your Zynthian Box, this wiki tutorial is the best reference AFAIK 😉

Now that Zynthian Box specification is, more or less, closed, i would like to share with you the Bill of Materials and some advice about bulding your own Zynthian Box. I would like that other people build his own Zynthian Box and help me with software development 😉
The list is composed of generic parts and specifically designed parts. All these specifically designed parts are called Zynthian Parts. You can build these parts by yourself using the specifications, schemes and PCB designs, or you can contact me. I will try to make these parts available at a reasonable price.

Zynthian is an Open Synth Platform based in Raspberry Pi, some Open Software Synthesizers and more.
I’m trying to integrate all the parts in a realiable case with a nice and ergonomic User Interface, so everybody can enjoy this wonderful synthesizers in any place without having to install or configure anything.
When it’s finished, i would like to make it available for everybody, as a toolkit or as a finished product, so you can use it for Live Playing, Music Production or any kind of experimentation.
Of course, all the specifications will be freely available, so you can build your own device if you prefer 😉
