Paper Bits is a small voltage controlled modular synthesizer system, created by Berlin based artist Wolfgang Spahn. Its simple design, accessible interface as well as low price offer a powerful sound tool dedicated to learning, experimenting and playing.
Analog synthesizers are known for their warm, rich, organic, and completely continuous sound, that arises from its analog waveform. Today, musicians, sound artists and DJ’s are attracted by the opportunities that come with the sound-shaping functions of the analog synthesizer, such as sound producing circuitry and voltage control. While digital synthesizers are based on binary representations of various sound and instrument waveform that are stored in read only memory (ROM), the analog waveform allows for performatively generated sounds that exist only in the moment. Thus, it is possible to create finely nuanced tones, noises, and interference, or to generate imprecise and delayed sounds.
