ArduTouch music synthesizer workshop -- Music Generation for Newbies:

ArduTouch music synthesizer kit



Abstract:

Learn to solder together a cool, powerful music synthesizer,
       and learn to make cool music, sound, and noise!

ArduTouch workshop at EMF Camp 2018


ArduTouch is an open source Arduino-compatible music synthesizer kit with a built-in touch keyboard, and with built-in speaker/amplifier.

This workshop is for total newbies to learn to solder and make their own ArduTouch music synthesizer.

The ArduTouch comes pre-programmed with a way cool synthesizer. And I will show you how to re-program it with other way cool (and totally different) synthesizers.

Full Description:

Participants will all learn to solder and make an ArduTouch music synthesizer from a kit. I guarantee it will work when you're done!

The ArduTouch comes pre-programmed with a really nice music synthesizer (a 4-voice sawtooth waveform generator).
An ArduTouch Arduino library is available for programming in more super nice synthesizers, with lots and lots of features. The library also comes with many way cool example synthesizer sketches that also serve as a tutorial for making your own ArduTouch synthesizers (which are Arduino sketches).

For those who want to learn more, the documentation teaches the basics of Digital Signal Processing for audio generation.

This workshop is for total newbies!

Taught by Mitch Altman.

Mitch gave a talk on his ArduTouch music synthesizer kit (including a tutorial on Digital Signal Process for total newbies) at The Circle of HOPE and at EMF Camp 2018.
