NTH Music Synthesizer
Status: Fully funded
Here's another open-source music project that will allow people to create digital music. The NTH Music Synthesizer is an easy-to-use synthesizer that will, as the inventors say, allow you to go from “sweet and sublime to raw, and thrashing, and retro sounds.” For the techies, all this is done with a PIC microcontroller, and an 8-bit DAC, analog low-pass filters, and and integrated step sequencer. The controls are simple and straight-forward, and the design is as just as geeky as we like. And because it's open-source hardware, it's hackable meaning you can tweak it as you please for your own unique sounds.
