I'm new to this forum, but I've been working with Arduino for half a year now. Have to say it's a great platform... the hacking is good
In the last months I've finished a prototype of an analog bass synthesizer. It's on separate circuit boards now, but will be intended as a shield for the Arduino. I aim to release it for ±100 euro fully assembled, and ±70 euro as a kit.
- 20Hz - 6 kHz pitch, controllable in 65536 steps (using Arduino PWM)
- sawtooth and square wave oscillator, with toggle switch
- Low-pass resonant filter with 1 potmeter for resonance, and 1 for cut-off (high quality pots, no trash!
- 3.5 mm headphone jack
- 8 pushbuttons to select basslines
- switches for portamendo and "echo" effect
Is anybody interested in a purchase? I hope to mass produce the shield by the end of the year. Also, if anybody would like to suggest some features, please let me know.
I have plans to add an additional drummachine onto the shield (the 808 to back-up the 303
), but it might be a little too ambitious...
Thank you for your attention!
