Stumbled across this interesting piece of chip-news today! The Chipophone, developed by Swedish software engineer Linus Åkesson, is actually an old electronic organ that has been converted into a chiptune synthesizer via a set of microcontrollers that transform the original organ tones into MIDI signals… fancy! Check out the video below, and read more on the chipophone’s creation at Linus’ personal website. With innovations such as this, I wonder if we’ll start seeing some chiptune artists give their game boys a rest and start pumping out their live tunes in real time! Wouldn’t that be something!
