At Pixil 3D, our design studio in south Florida, we’re proud to launch our first open source instrument. The Slixtar is a 3D printed musical instrument. It’s a maker’s DIY midi controller that features a guitar synth form factor. Built on top of the arduino platform, the Slixtar can be customized to perform as a guitar that plays any instrument. The form factor feels natural and is a break away from the boxes with square buttons on a grid.
