Artemis Synthesizer: A Music Synthesizer Kit

Artemis Synthesizer: A Music Synthesizer Kit. Chris writes in –

Hello Adafruit!

I just finished my writeup for my Music Synthesizer kit project. The kit was made for a soldering workshop for the Boston University Artemis Project (http://www.bu.edu/lernet/artemis/), which is a Women In Technology Summer Program for rising high school freshmen. I work for the BU EDF (edf.bu.edu), which normally makes electronics for physics experiments, but we also do outreach electronics programs.

Normally the workshop would have contained a POV light toy, but we wanted a change of pace and I took lead to develop a music synthesizer with an 8 button keyboard, which can also act as a sequencer. There is a phototransistor which can pick up a light based message generated by this page, which my coworker Sam Damask made
(http://edf.bu.edu/~swd/javascript/sine_wave_audio_jq2.html), to program in sequences and new waveforms.

Video & writeup. Design Files and Firmware: github.com/cwoodall/artemis-synth-v1

Much of the hardware design for the DAC to Amplifier Interface was referenced from the Wave Shield; however, I made a bunch of changes to suit my particular situation and goals!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
