This limited capacity weekender is a hands-on introduction to DIY digital audio synthesis using Arduino. For the workshop we’ll be using Standuino, an Arduino clone that’s specially designed for building stand-alone electronic devices such as synthesizers.
During an intensive two days with Standuino’s founders you will build your own fraAngelico digital synthesizer, modify the software and hardware for it to function as a frauAngelico drum sampler, and then spend the remaining time further modifying and reprogramming the synthesizer into your own customized digital sound instrument.
Learning some basics about Arduino sound synthesis and the Standuino project
Building the fraAngelico synthesizer
Hardware/software modifications to allow the fraAngelico to function exchangeably as the frauAngelico drum sampler.
Getting deeper into Arduino digital synthesis
Advanced personal modifications to the synthesizer, adding custom sounds, new features, and new functionalities in hardware and software
DATE: 6-7 APRIL, 2013
TIME: 10:00 – until finished (each day)
COST: €110 (includes cost of fraAngelico parts and Standuino board)
MAXIMUM PARTICIPANTS LIMITED TO 10
LOCATION: STEIM Concert Space, Utrechtsedwarsstraat 134 Amsterdam
WHAT TO BRING / PREREQUISITES
Participants must bring a laptop with the Arduino software environment pre-installed. At least some very basic experience working with Arduino is expected, but you certainly do not have to be an expert. This workshop will be limited to 10 people, so there is room for people from varied technical levels to attend and receive one-on-one attention.
Please also bring a pair of headphones to be able to listen to your instrument while you make modifications. Otherwise all parts and equipment will be supplied at the workshop as part of your registration fee.
