Arduino Compatible FM Synthesizer on a DSP #MusicMonday

This is an FM synthesizer running on an Analog Devices ADSP-BF706 DSP chip, all packed into a tiny Arduino-compatible feather form factor! Perfect for those 80’s FM keyboard sounds.

To view the code check out the Blackfin+ Arduino core on github: deanm1278/ArduinoCore-blackfin

And the accompanying AudioFX library: deanm1278/audioFX

  1. WANT! Very cool that it’s a Feather Board, rather than a Wing. I think I see an Atmel SAMD (ARM) processor, so maybe it could run CircuitPython. 😀

    I hope you’re going to sell these!

  2. Awesome! A great Tutorial video which helps to learn Arduino Compatible FM Synthesizer on a DSP which is an FM synthesizer running on an Analog Devices ADSP-BF706 DSP chip. Thanks for sharing with us.
