About the Workshop


The 8BitMixtapeNEO is a lo-fi 8Bit synthesizer based on the Arduino-compatible ATTINY85, featuring 2 Pots, 2 Buttons and 8 addressable RGB Neo-pixels. The key feature of the new 8BitMixtapeNEO is the easiness of uploading new codes using an audio communication protocol, means just playing a .wav sound file from your computer/smartphone (or walkman). An introductory video can be found here.
