Developed by Open Music Labs, MIDI Vampire-I (Vamp1) is probably the most minimalist synth in the world. It boils down a MIDI synth to its basics - MIDI in, processing, audio out. And, in doing so, it reduces the power consumption to the point that it can be phantomly (or vampirically) powered from the MIDI data line itself! Just plug in and play, no batteries or powersupplies.
