Hardware/software synth for Arduino


Gijs posted details for building his “Hardware” Software Synthesizer 2 project using Arduino compatible parts. His prototype combines all components onto a standalone board but it appears this could easily be adapted to a standard Arduino. Altogether, it’s a whole lot of functionality with a relatively low part count. Features include –

  • 6-bit resistor DAC
  • 7 selectable synths
  • 2 X 32 steps sequencer
  • Bit reduction
  • Amplitude modulation + Bit reduction
  • Delay (repeatedly sample and loop) + Bit reduction

Quite sweet – I’ll definitely be building one of these asap.
