New Entropic Synth 2018 (Arduino nano & Mozzi library).

Published on Apr 9, 2018 Biyi Amez

"At the heart of Entropic Synth, an Arduino Nano running the Mozzi library. Developed by Tim Barrass, Mozzi is a collection of pre-programmed modules that turn Arduino into a full-fledged synthesizer. The library includes oscillators, filters, and several math objects that enable Arduino to efficiently execute a variety of complex mathematical operations. I must say that I was rather skeptical of the sound quality before trying Mozzi out myself, but the very first sounds came out of my tiny Arduino immediately prove me wrong!

The sound of Entropic Synth is generated through a WavePacket synthesis module, which is essentially modeled after Miller Steven Puckette's example in the PureData tutorials (F14.wave.packet.pd). I have added a number of control options, including the randomization of several parameters, the scale-wise control for the oscillator frequency, and being able to adjust the bitrate of the output to create a nice bit-crusher effect. Using only seven knobs (one of the knobs is simply a passive volume control, while the remaning six are connected to analog inputs on Arduino), the variety of sounds that comes out of this mini synthesizer is very impressive.
