Now let’s build a synthesizer on the Arduino Nano platform.
The mono is a monophonic synth but has a paraphonic oscillator so you can play chords. The synth architecture is a basic 2 DCO, 1 DCF and 1 DCA.
We’ll start with a donor keybed.
I’ve used the Swissonic49 4-octave full sized keyboard with pitchbend and modwheel.
While not a Fatar bed, is it quite a good quality full sized keyboard.

My work on these free synthesizers is based on donations from people.
If you find the code useful, please consider a $3 donation to keep future developments open source.
