A simple Arduino-based synth that can generate all sorts of exciting sounds.

It has 12 push switches along with two ON/OFF switches for changing modes and two potentiometers that change pitch and tempo.

By changing the Pitch Potentiometer, we can change the output waveform that makes cool sci-fi sounds by pressing any 12 buttons. It works pretty much like a normal keyboard synth.

I’ve been making synths for a while now, made two synths that work identically to this one but they all use Mozi Library to run but this one uses simple code that modulates output by the state of buttons and switches.

Material Required
Following were the things I used in this build-

- Custom PCB
- Arduino Nano
- Potentiometer
- Push Buttons
- Speaker 4 Ohms
- Header Pins Female”
