Introduction to Synth Programming on the Daisy Seed

About Course

Welcome to our beginners' course! Here, we'll explore the basics of synthesis and Arduino programming using the Daisy Seed microcontroller. In the course, we will design a subtractive synthesizer with two types of oscillators: one you can hear, and another for modulation. We'll also integrate a creamy Moog-style filter to get that massive bass and leads sound.

In the process, we will learn the basics of Arduino programming and how to program the controls on the Simple PCB board, knobs and switches. We'll also uncover the secrets of mapping values effectively, tailoring them to fit our creative design.
