The Kickstarter campaign pitch for the Bitty drum machine/synth is short and to the point  - it's small, it packs a sonic wallop, and it's expandable. What's not to love?

The drums or melodies can be played manually, or the left knob can be used to select patterns and change the speed. The output is old school/MPC-like at 12 bit, and the speakers are aluminum and the type used in car door panels. 

Bitty is power via AAA batteries or USB. And it comes with all of the software and samples its maker Curious Sound Objects has ever made. 

Bitty is available for the limited, early bird price of $78. That's reason enough for a drum roll!
