Hi all,

this seems to be interesting for DIY Synth makers:

It’s a Roland System 8 at a tenth of the price… :smiley:

A lot of buzzwords, and a lot of hardware that isn’t available yet. And no mention of how these synth modules (software) actually get developed, or how much they cost.

There’s a web shop: about 200-400€. I think they were on the last Superbooth in Berlin and perhaps they are also on the next.

Especially the Raspi integrated studio hardware seems to be interesting, but currently they don’t sell anything like that…

The dinopark stuff seem to be made using existing design by CreamWare in the 90’s-00’s, who made a DSP card that you ran the software on. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creamware_(company)

A good deal cheaper than the original products, https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/creamware-prodyssey-asb £749, but then Behringer have an analogue clone of the Oddessy coming out soon-ish, and that’s being teased at under £500

Hi fellows,

I found out on the uad forum that the dinopark might use arduinos for networking and a dual core SHARC DSP for the sound.

Greetings and God bless, Marius

That’s pretty much what Dino website says.

However, with advances in microcontrollers, dedicated DSP like SHARC is far less essential, and more esoteric to program.

Yes, but! the code was already developed to use a dsp chip so it probably makes sense not to have to refactor it all.

Agreed, it makes sense, given the Creamware background.

But it doesn’t make much sense to ‘maker’ buyers, who can run very complete synths on Pi, Teensy, STM32, etc.

they are literally just reusing their old code, which they still have rights to, following a split between some two parts of the original team.

I think the synth looks cool but I don’t see anything DIY about it in any way except the fact that it’s screwed together by the user.

No GitHub, no api docs, no nothing.
