Plinky synth review

PLINKY Review – a charming portable granular and wavetable synth

Plinky is a combination multi-sampler, granular, virtual analog and wavetable synth with a pressure sensitive playing surface. It has 8 voice polyphony, is stereo, has both an arpeggiator and sequencer, envelopes, four LFOs and a comprehensive mod matrix, and all in an interface that actually makes sense once you get it.

It works both standalone and can be mounted in a Eurorack case – and you can buy it either as a DIY kit or fully assembled, assuming it’s in stock.  In this video I walk through how it works including pros and cons:
