Pianocade lets you create your own arcade music

Video games hold a special place in our hearts. The music and art has changed over the years, but we’re never going to forget the musical masterpieces that came from arcade games. Sadly you don’t hear much of that style anymore, and it’s quite difficult to find it in a game nowadays.

If you wish to see this music come back onto the scene, why not start the revolution for retro yourself? The Pianocade is all things chiptune, and it works much in the same way a keyboard does, but has the look and feel of an arcade controller. Instead of hitting piano keys, you’ll be smashing buttons to make your very own tunes. This has up to a 128-note range, and a MIDI connection. You can program it to sound however you’d like, and you can share what you make with all the other Pianocaders out there. This will cost you anywhere from $250-$325 depending on whether you want one octave or two.
