squelch (Tasty Chips Piggy demo)

This composition acts as a demo showcasing all the possibilities of a particular instrument.

Apart from the percussion all sounds evident on this recording stem from a Piggy, an Arduino-driven monophonic synthesizer developed by Pieter van der Meer of Tasty Chips Electronics.

Apart from occasional use of overdrive and delay, all sounds were recorded dry, showcasing the sound of a Piggy as it is delivered from its output. This highlights the dynamic range of the synthesizers ADSR envelopes, FM modulation and resonant filter,

There are a total of eleven Piggy tracks, of which four are harmonizing with eachother either creating chords or multi-voice melodies.
