Once again Duane B from the rcarduino blog has shared another audio project based around an Arduino. In this example he builds upon the concept of the Illutron Synthesiser - a device which can generate a wide variety of sounds (and perhaps music) using direct digital synthesis. Construction is very easy, and only requires a few dollars worth of parts apart from the board itself - and the results are very good:
If this type of project interests you and you're new to the Arduino world, check out our new Experimenter's Kit for Arduino:
The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects!
