ArduTouch Music Synthesizer Workshop
ArduTouch music synthesizer workshop -- Music Generation for Newbies
Learn to solder together a cool, powerful music synthesizer,
and learn to make cool music, sound, and noise!
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.
This workshop will be given twice
Day TBD: ?-???, ?pm - ?:30pm
Day TBD: ?-???, ?pm - ?:30pm
NOTE: You will need to REGISTER beforehand to take this workshop.
Please see registration link, given below.
NOTE: To do the hands-on portion of this workshop, you will need to order MATERIALS.
Please see the materials section, given below.
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) -- called "Thick", that makes super phat sounds.
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).
ArduTouch currently has 10 totally different synthesizers available! Synth sounds include way beautiful to metal to noise to drones, drum/bass machine sequencer, to spacey psychedelic music or harsh musical sounds, . . .
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.
