Synthetica – Harmonica Synth

Benjamin Poilve (BenIP on the forum) has made a neat little hand-held instrument, Synthetica.

Ben came up with an idea to make a musical instrument to play around with chord progressions as a way to experiment with music composition.  He came up with Synthetica, a handheld synthesizer.  Synthetica is played using capacitive touch with one hand selecting a chord and the other hand selecting a note.  With some help from the forum he got his project up and running.

Some of the features include pots to control:

  • Delay time
  • Delay feedback
  • Octive detaune
  • LFO frequency
  • LFO detune
  • LFO mix

Code for the project has been published on GitHub.
