This course is designed as an entry point for artists and makers who want to get started with synth DIY. Nevertheless, if you have experience with Arduino programming and synthesis you might still find it useful to understand how you could use the Daisy Seed microcontroller.
Chris has been working as an engineer, both in hardware and software for over a decade. He is an Electrical Engineer by trade and a Software Engineer by choice. For the past 6 years Chris has been tinkering with microcontrollers, building mesmerising wearables and puzzling escape-room props, as well as music machines, realizing his own designs and providing synth-makers with software for their instruments.
Roey is the founder of Synthux Academy. He has been teaching design, synthesis and music for over a decade, as part of academic programs, and as a guest lecturer. He is also running the International Synth Design Hackathon and hosting the Synth Design Podcast.
Nothing fancy, but you'll need one to make the most out of the kit. We can probably get you one for the workshop, but when you'll want to make progress at home you'll need your own. You'll also need some solder and desoldering wick
Mac or Windows ideally. You can follow this 4 minute tutorial to install Arduino and the additional libraries and drivers required.
Also install VCV Rack. It's free, and awesome! We'll use it to learn synthesis fundamentals, but it is an amazing instrument in its own right.
We'll need a micro USB cable to connect our synth to the computer and program it. Make sure your cable can transfer data (some cables can only charge).
