Cavisynth has introduced the Ardurack – a multifunction Eurorack module, based on an Arduino microcontroller.
Developer Cyrille Henry let us know about a new Arduino-based monophonic synthesizer, the One Chip Synth (OSC-2). The OCS-2 is a complete virtual analog synth voice in Eurorack format. Here are a couple of video demos:
Today, Ableton announced their new Connection Kit, a free toolkit for music makers who want to use Live with technologies such as Arduino, LeapMotion, littleBits, Lego Mindstorms EV3 and OSC. Connection Kit developers pose the question: “Ever thought about using your webcam to control a synthesizer? Imagine creating a soundscape using weather data from the… Read More Free Max For Live Kit Connects Ableton Live to Arduino, Mindstorms, littleBits and More
The Soundmachines NS1nanosynth is a miniature modular synthesizer that’s priced about the same as one module of a full-size modular synth. It’s cheap, as modular synths go, because it dispenses with custom screen printed panels, jacks, knobs – leaving you with the essence of a modular: a circuit board. Developer Davide Mancini describes the NS1nanosynth as ‘A powerful, deep and hacker-friendly… Read More The Soundmachines NS1nanosynth Is A Tiny, Powerful Modular Synthesizer
Developer Frédéric Meslin has announced a Kickstarter project to develop the OP-A, a multi-timbral FM synthesizer Arduino Shield. The Arduino is popular open-hardware microprocessor platform. A Shield is essentially a PCB that plugs into an Arduino and gives it new features. The OP·A is an FM synthesizer shield for Arduino, that Meslin says is “great… Read More OP·A – A Multitimbral FM Synthesizer Shield for Arduino
Developer Jan Ostman let us know about a new 8-bit synthesizer project that he’s created, Minimo. “I got very inspired by the Roland A-01 with it’s 8-bit synth,” notes Ostman. Here’s a short video preview:
The Strumpad is a unique MIDI Controller that lets you ‘strum’ your keyboard like a guitar.
Developer Jan Ostman of DSP Synthesizers let us know about a new DIY project to build a string synth, inspired by 70’s style string synths, based on an Arduino.
