“You want games? I’ll give you games.”
What is the Ottobit ? A Maniacal Little Machine, inspired by vintage gaming consoles.
To call it a bitcrusher would be an insult. The triggered stutter and pitch/filter/crush sequencers take you to side scrolling, coin collecting maze worlds. Add in a resonant low pass that competes with the best analog synths and grandpa SID would be proud.
