This is a new version of oneUP!, with a board redesign, adopting the form factor used for the Pocket Pokey synth; they're now a matching set. This is a midi-controlled TIA audio IC from an Atari 2600 and various classic arcades of the late 70’s and early 80’s. The TIA IC installed in this unit is new-old stock, meaning that it wasn’t pulled from a used game system; it was warehoused and the first time it made sound was when I tested it here. The video linked on this page contains a short audio demo. This instrument can do allot more, but the demo should whet your appetite. The oneUP! midi synth connects to your usb-capable midi controller or DAW by a common mini USB to USB A cable. The audio out is by eighth inch jack.

Here's what my customers are saying about the electronic musical instruments that I build:

"...great products."

"Hey man, this thing looks awesome!"

"...it looks like a solid build, and I will def have some fun with it."

"Really neato noiz weapon!"

"FRACKEN AWESOME!!!!"

"Incredible seller, highest tier of excellence. Packaged carefully & beautifully!"

When connected to my Windows PC, my DAW recognizes oneUP! immediately. The device was also tested with a hardware USB midi controller (without a computer) and it works well. This is not tested on Mac or Linux, but it should be fine if you already know your setup works with a USB midi output device. The device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or your pocket. The work was very much ‘by hand’, aside from the custom PCB which I designed and had made at a board house. The build is solid and durable. The audio output is nice, loud and clear.


The design is based off of Brian Peter’s TIA chip synth under the MIT license. Besides the provided demo, it’s capable of everything in Brian’s demo, too. This unit includes a socketed CO10444D “Atari TIA” audio IC. After the first twenty units, I will most likely be out of TIAs. The customer will then need to source his or her own TIA audio IC to plug into the provided socket.

Returns are usually fine with me, providing there’s no evidence of dissecting the item. I can also service this device for you in the future, if you stay in touch. Shipping will be insured, of course, and tracking will be provided.

Thanks for looking! If you like this product, you might also like the version that uses an Atari Pokey IC:
