Pocket Piano by Critter & Guitari - GIVEAWAY!

For the next two weeks, you can enter a drawing to win a Pocket Piano from Critter & Guitari! Enter now by making a suggested donation of $100! 

From the Critter & Guitari website: 

The Pocket Piano is a fun, versatile synthesizer! It has seven synth modes, a rugged anodized aluminum and wood enclosure and 18 maple keys. It’s got a 3W built-in speaker and a line out audio jack. The Pocket Piano is perfect for making music in the studio, around a campfire and at your kitchen table! The seven synth modes are:
• Vibrato Synth
• Harmonic Sweeper
• Two-Octave Arpeggiator
• Octave Cascade
• Mono FM Synth
• FM Arpeggiator
• Mono Glider

To operate, turn it on and start playing keys. Use the Mode button to select modes. Depending on the mode, you can select from four wave forms (sine, square, triangle or sawtooth) or increase the octave with the auxiliary button. Each mode has two parameters that are controlled by the two left knobs.

The following modes offer four voice polyphony: Vibrato Synth, Harmonic Sweeper, 2-Octave Arpeggio, Octave Cascade, FM Arpeggio. The remaining modes (Mono FM Synth, Mono Glider) are monophonic. The tuning knob adjusts the keyboard over two octaves and the far right knob controls volume. The ‘Hold’ function maintains notes that are playing and frees up your hands for other musical tasks.

The winner will be drawn on Friday, Sept 29th! See it in action here:

Hey Cheyenne, welcome! I'm a WKU alum, had a show on WWHR Aron's ago (before it was FM) and was in a local BG band that got played on it. So, lots of love for KY and the BG scene. So glad you're on board the mighty FMA. specksnyder
