- 2 octaves of pitch range
- fast and precise intonation
- 4 actuators for striking, muting, punshing, damping and shorten the string
- modular and parametric design (OpenScad)
- most parts are 3D-printed or easy to gather
- open source

Today I’d like to talk about the Techtar’s Ampmod sound module which does
what I call “pitch dependent polyphonic amplitude modulation”.
I demonstrate it in this video:

Today I want to start the documentation of my favourite project.
I’m on it for quite a while now and probably will be, as there
are still plenty of things to do.
I’m going to start with this short blog post and the video below,
to show you some sound examples and pictures of the Techtar.
