The Pocket Piano is a mini electronic synthesizer with a big sound! The synthesizer features six unique modes:
• Vibrato Synth
• Harmonic Sweeper
• Two-Octave Arpeggiator
• Octave Cascade
• Mono FM Synth
• FM Arpeggiator
The Pocket Piano is housed in a sturdy aluminum and hardwood case and also includes a built-in speaker, a 1/4" output jack, and wooden keys made for a refined touch. It can be powered both by a 9V battery or a wall wart (not included).
When you change modes with the right-most wooden button, a color LED above that button indicates what mode is selected with a different color for each mode. The entire keyboard may be tuned over a 2 octave range by turning the knob second from right. Volume is controlled by the right-most knob. The function of the remaining two left knobs depend on what mode is selected, and are described below. There is also a button that selects waveform (sine, square, triangle, sawtooth) in the first four modes, and shifts the keyboard an octave higher in the last two modes.
Simple 4 voice with vibrato. Knobs control speed and depth. Button selects waveform
Harmonic sweeper steps through the harmonics of the notes being played. Knobs control rate and number of harmonics. Button selects waveform.
2 octave arpeggiator, notes are sequenced in the order they are held down. Knobs control rate and decay. Button selects waveform.
Octave shifting arpeggiator, notes cascade in pattern over 4 octaves. Knobs control rate and decay. Button selects waveform.
Simple FM synthesizer. Knobs control harmonicity and modulation index. Button shifts keyboard up 1 octave.
FM arpeggiator. Knobs control rate and modulation index / decay. Button shifts keyboard up 1 octave.
