The tiny synth craze has gotten out of hand


Calculator watch fans rejoice: there’s a new contraption that makes your wrist wear a little more useful. Audioweld has made what it claims is the first synthesizer watch — which is appropriately named Synthwatch. The husky contraption offers a set of seven keys for capturing tunes via a companion app for iOS and Android. With that software, you can control recording, access a sequencer and tap into a bank of 200 sounds. Of course, tiny instrument works on its own too, and you don’t need to have your phone out to use it.
