Plinky is an 8-voice polyphonic touch synthesiser that specialises in fragile, melancholic sounds.

It fits into 24HP eurorack cases, but can also be played as a standalone desktop mini-synth, with line-level stereo input and a headphone output, all powered from a micro-USB connector.

When is it available?

Plinky is now available as open source for anyone wishing to have their own board done at JLC or similar.
