Denkitribe posted this rather sweet demo of!‘s Arduino based sound synthesizer project, appropriately titled “Auduino”. While some delay/reverb+accompaniment have definitely been added, the sweet sounds of granular synthesis still shine through –

I built one and plugged a stylus controller which was ripped from Gakken SX-150. It works very well. Its sound is dry and crispy, but I think it is not bad for $50. Want one? Do It Yourself!

Because the project uses Arduino’s built-in PWM feature, litle additional hardware is needed – definitely have to bump this one up a few notches on my to-build list. Source is available on Google Code.
