Author Buzzzy! a new little digital synth with big sound.

Hi all

I've discovered on the french musician community audiofanzine.com a new synth.
The kickstarter crowdfunding campaign started today.

Buzzzy! is a 16 voice / 4 part digital USB & MIDI module with 4 synthesis engines and quality built-in effects.

Buzzzy! on Kickstarter

The demos are very pleasant to hear smile

Mandatory sound demo:



Lots of sounds in such a small and affordable box!

So this us one of the best poly synth I've ever hear ..

Have no idea why the synth world isn't going crazy over this,.. is it the size?


Support this guy ..

This is super rad.

I'm guessing the lack of public exposure and the fact it's still a kickstarter.

It does sound very good. Actually quite interested, going to the KS page now......

I just realized that this synth is 4 simultaneous parts/tracks. You can make a full song with just this! This is crazy, instant pledge for me
Gaetan
This sounds surprisingly good.

Got a good recommendation from Emilie Mutable (who knows her shit inside-out hardware and software-wise!):::

Hi everyone,

I am Fred, the dev. behind the Buzzzy!

Thank you very much for the all the positive comments, the Kickstarter is doing great right now but has mentioned here, few people have heard of my work and I am looking to reach as many potential users as I can.

Fortunately, more demos will come soon and I stay here available to answer all of your questions about this little module.

Have a great day!
Fred.

The user manual implies they know each other and Emilie gave feedback and help during the development of this synth which is very encouraging

Someone with an account on Gearslutz should post there if not done already!

My only issue with this is that I don't have a hardware sequencer that can handle 4 polyphonic midi tracks, and I don't want to have to use ableton or buy a polyend.

But this is so cool I'll have to make an exception I guess

There are better options than Ableton and (especially) Polyend...

I'm open to suggestions smile

edit: social entropy engine might work too. And the crazy 8 too. And older sequencers too I guess. Well I have more options than I first thought smile

I didn't really give the video enough time to get past basic pulse stuff when I first saw this, but it does sound pretty great. thumbs up

Are other simple engines planned for the future?
Karplus strong, granular,...

Thanks. The module sounds great!

Hello Fred!
I would like to use this as a sound module for OP-Z. Do you think it will work with a simple USB C to USB B cable. I'm not sure if OP-Z will power Buzzzzy. If not is there a chance for a USB Host input?
Thank you !
lisa
Sounds great. Simple and beautiful. I can’t take any more clutter though and these small boxes tend to pile up in my home. meh

Hi again ;-)

Not for this precise machine but I am planning to design other modules if this one happens to be successful enough.

According to the teenage engineering website, the OP-Z has the USB host ability so it should theoretically work. Also the Buzzzy! has a VERY LOW power consumption (75mA is the absolute maximum) so it can surely be powered from the op-z.

There is no USB Host function planned for this machine.

Just sell some stuff! ;-)

Have a great weekend!

Will there be more arpeggiator patterns? Either way, backed!
