Space*Synth update...

by Chris Randall

As a bit of an update to my Tiny Digital roundup of last week, Tony from ElectroKraft dropped me a line to let me know that the reason no more Space*Synths were available is because they require a specific chip, the Texas Instruments SN76477 (which is the sound chip used in many vintage video games, not the least of which is Space Invaders.) This chip is no longer made, and is rare as rare can be. Thus, unless a quantity can be procured, no more Space*Synths.

He did let me know that he has another project in the pipeline which sounds really cool. I'm looking forward to it, and will drop info when it becomes available.

I don't know if these people can actually get what they list, but it sure seems like they have access to a lot of the TI SN76477 chips...

Take a look:
