Development board pb patch blocks


Development board pb patch blocks

This is the basic Patchblock development board to which patches created through the software are downloaded. They can be joined to each other to use multiple patches and then connected to other modules to extend the functionality adding such things as Midi in/out or a keyboard unit with 4 additional rotary controllers.

Basic Features

  • 3.5mm stereo input
  • 3.5mm stereo output
  • Digital input and output interface to directly connect patch blocks
  • Integrated lithium-polymer battery, rechargeable via USB
  • 2 freely programmable rotary knobs
  • 2 freely programmable push buttons with programmable LED
  • USB interface

Product description

 Patchblocks are innovative programmable mini synths including software. The Patchblock software editor enables programming each modul individually via USB port, which opens up a wide range of functions. From sinus waves and band passes all the way to bass line arpeggiators and drum sounds, when it comes to creativity the possibilities are endless. Patchblocks allow unlimited reprogramming of each module, are battery-powered and do not require being connected to a PC. Any single patchblock works as a standalone synthesizer/sound modder. Interconnect patchblocks via cables or directly to each other. Patchblocks come with a 3.5mm audio jack which allows using them as stage effects, or trigger-sync’ing them with other devices.The software editor uses a Drag & Drop VPL to combine individual digital sound elements. This allows tunesmiths without any programming skills to develop and use their own synthesizer hardware.


Patchblocks PB

In the very beginning we've developed Patchblocks, small, inexpensive, programmable synthesiser modules that are easy to program with our visual programming editor. Patchblocks are used by musicians, hobbyists and educators to teach music, maths and sound synthesis. Programming for young people and DIY computer kits like the RaspberryPi have become very popular in recent years. We offer products that make programming accessible, collaborative, educational and exciting by using sound instead of a computer screen. The product has gained a lot of popularity through a successful Kickstarter campaign in December 2013, which raised over £67.000 within one month. It became available from June 2014 and since then we've build up a large distribution and retain network all over the globe. Queen's University Belfast and the University of Portsmouth use them as part of their curriculum. In November 2014 Mindflood has launched another crowdfunding round via , which also went pretty successful with an equity funding of £175.000 within 4 weeks.
