RB1robotto: Robot voice for Eurorack



Davide Mancini’s company Soundmachines will start selling the RB1robotto very soon. It's a voltage controlled voice-oscillator built around the Babblebot chip and an Arduino microcontroller.

The Robotto comes with CV controls for pitch, vowel and consonant, manual/gate triggering and an open architecture for solder-free hacking, which is probably the best reason for buying this module. If you don't like the idea of doodling around in Arduino, the Talking Synth by Flame might be better choice: it sounds louder, bigger and better and it's more versatile than an unmodified Robotto.
