Polytik modular synths: playing with graphics and sound.

POLYTIK is a collection of beautifully designed hand-held synth modules exploring the border between play and sound. Born out of a DIY ethos and the maker community, Polytik has been crafted into something very different – a series of beautifully designed objects in their own right. POLYTIK uses open-source hardware and encourages users to make new modules and hacks. The brainchild of John Richards and Jack Featherstone in collaboration with Artists & Engineers, these hybrid analogue/digital devices can produce a palette of sounds ranging from angular rhythmic sequences to abstract noise, pads and drones.
