New synth in the works

and here’s an audiofile with a sneak preview of one of the VCO’s.


This sawtooth is generated through an orange drop capacitor (sounded better then its wima counterpart) in a 100% analog sound path. Reset pulses are generated by an Arduino and the rise of the sawtooth waveform is controlled by a MCP4921 DAC. Each frequencies requires an exact voltage to level out the sawtooth. I haven’t calibrated these voltages yet so the sawtooth isn’t very precise yet. I like the raw sound though!

    Very impressive,
    I have been thinking about doing something similar in fact.
    I recently bought a JenSX1000 synth, and it has a DCO that uses this same method.

    Your entire blog is great.
