Reggie Watts Builds a Synthesizer, Bit by Bit
The instrument behind most of modern pop music isn’t just for electronics geeks anymore. Toy company littleBits’ “Synth Kit” is an analog modular synthesizer anyone can put together. Comedian and musician Reggie Watts takes Little Bits’ diminutive synth for a spin and explains what makes synths tick (and buzz, and sing).
In the video below, Watts demonstrates his synth skills for Ira.
