The Arduino-based synth project formerly known as binder synth is now known as Adasynth – and it sounds like development is coming along right nicely. Davitr0n provides some background on his project -
The goal of this project was to make a patchable synthesizer as versatile as we can while keeping the cost down. Â Since I know how to program C++ and have a basic understanding of electronics we chose to use an arduino.
So far weâ€™ve stayed pretty true to that goal. Â With just the arduino, a resistor chip, some recycled wood, and a lot of help in the form of interface components (plugs and jacks) from my old electronics teacher we have a working synthesizer.. and to be honest the results so far are much better than we expected.
Here’s hoping he posts source/schematic – patchable digital synthesis looks like fun!
