Molecule Synth, a Modular Synthesizer

Travis Feldman is seeking Kickstarter funding for Molecule Synth, a cool synthesizer that can be pieced together, Lego-like, from a series of hexagonal modules that feature different effects.

The MOLECULE SYNTH is a unique musical instrument. It is like a traditional keyboard synthesizer that has been broken into its elements: speaker/amp, sound generator, and pitch control. With the MOLECULE SYNTH SET you decide how to put those elements back together using simple, color-coded, interchangeable hexagons. The MOLECULE SYNTH combines LEGO-interchangeability with Synthesizers with Physical Electronics.

The MOLECULE SYNTH is like a building block set for creating your own musical device. You move the interchangeable components around and adjust controllers to create a variety of fun combinations. It’s an experimenter’s design set, which means you choose how the instrument is configured, and you can experiment with it fearlessly because you can’t hurt anything or yourself trying new combinations, and the hexes can moved again and again.

The Molecule Synth has met its funding goal on Kickstarter, but you can still get on the action.
