Ginko Synthese - Seeds VCO

video upload by John Schussler

"There don't seem to be many videos on the Ginko Synthese Seeds VCO, so
I figured I'd do a general overview.

It's not fancy. With an underpowered CPU (8 bit, 16 MHz Arduino Nano), it's not high fidelity. But what it lacks in crystal clear sound it makes up for in character.

There are 9 modes. In theory it can run as either a free-running VCO with an
external gate/VCA, or as a voice with its own internal gate/VCA. I built this one, and apparently screwed something up because it doesn't do the free-running mode. I'll have to ask about that.

Nothing else here but the Seeds and a little reverb at the end. Except for the last part where I add some chorus and filtering to try and tame the noise….

00:00 Intro
00:20 0: The original "Grains" formant peaks
02:14 1: Tri wave w/ asymmetrical wave-wrapping
03:42 2: Super-saw with PWM
05:10 3: Classic FM
07:20 4: Saw-wave with hard sync
08:30 5: Phase-distortion
09:56 6: Tuned noise
11:11 7: Square wave with PWM
12:30 8: Ring mod
14:00 With chorus and some filtering"
