Color Chime: a new free sound app for iPhone and iPad

Today we are releasing Color Chime: a colorful way to make music.


The core of the app is a multi-timbral step sequencer with an engaging interface. We added simple controls for timbre, tempo, scale, delay and filter parameters. Creating a melody only requires a couple of taps.

Luminth Production Nearing Completion

Hello all,

Just a quick note to update everyone on the status of the Luminth project.  We have around half of the Luminth peripherals built, and Luminth Orbiter is approaching gold status.

We have sent out the Kickstarter surveys, and are looking forward to delivering the Luminth and Luminth Orbiter very soon.

Luminth PCBs Arrive, Enclosures in Production

Hello all,

We have two exciting pieces of news to share from the Luminth project.

The PCBs have arrived. We are currently uploading the firmware to the boards and testing them out with Luminth Orbiter.


We have received the final production prototypes for the Luminth enclosures, and have placed the bulk order for the acrylic parts.  Our good friends at Griffen Hollow Studio produced the NTH Music Synthesizer enclosures, and will be manufacturing the enclosures for the Luminth as well.


Thanks for reading!
