Pianocade: Arcade Button Synthesizer
Spotted on Engadget and Twitter this morning was a new awesome piece of electronic music equipment with a full range of black and white arcade buttons – and we couldn’t resist resharing it here. The Pianocade is both a synth and MIDI controller made by Toronto’s Portmanteau Devices, complete with keyboard-arranged arcade buttons, an arcade joystick, and even coin-return buttons on the front as settings switches.
The Pianocade is available for $250/$350CAN – or you can get your own DIY electronics-only kit from Portmanteau for $100. Now if only it had supercombos programmed in already… check out the Pianocade in action in the two videos below!
