Recently seen at the CCC conference in Hamburg is Johannes Taelman’s OPEN Axoloti project (link to 30-minute CCC video.) (Synthtopia link)

It’s built around the Axoloti Core (DSP and microcontroller) hardware. The Core is configured using Axoloti Patcher, a modular audio environment written in Java and works on Windows, OSX and Linux. Similar to Pure Data and MAX, Patcher output runs on the standalone Core’s micro. The CORE also handles MIDI I/O.

Taelman’s IndieGogo campaign has already reached its goal two weeks early, so it’s on!
