the idea is to control the AY with the buttons plus midi in just for note on-off and clock sync, Its not a ay-midibox  but with note on-off you can pretty much use a software that sends all midi data to play the notes.

Well, I've been working for about 2 months now on an AY38910 based synth-step sequencer using an arduino.

Basically my goal was to learn a bit of arduino, learn electronics, have fun working on this and of course have my I-made-my-self-music-instrument a la carte, with all the buttons and leds I want, where I want, and that do exactly what I decide... or sort of big_smile.

The idea is to built a 6 voice (2xAY) 16-step sequencer synth, with midi support and lots of flashy leds weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee big_smile.

Last week I finished 2 boards with all the components to control the basic stuff of the step (buttons and leds) a mixer with op-amp and the control of the 2 AY, all of this controlled by an arduino mega.

this is the arduino wiki page I created with all kick start info how I controlled the PSGs

On my last uploaded vid I show what I currently have

Older vids:

The current working controls:
16 buttons step sequencer
6 buttons voice selector
octave traspose
6 volumen knobs for mixer

feats Ill be working on:
add rotary encoder with pushbutton for various functions (envelope changing, mode ostinato, arpegiator)
2 bit sub-step editor (for a total of 64 notes instead of 16)
program behaviour for loop launching mode (using the 16 step buttons)
add midi in for easy note input...

Well and any other thing ill come up ... still a lot of work in progress, but hey I its a good way to "waste" my time here smile. I hope to get some ideas/feedback from you or inspire others into a similar journey smile


thank you man!!! !!! GL HF!!!

Anybody got the url or place where this will be streamed?? smile

Why not? whats wrong with doing it?

I like your chips... definetly they don't sound old-school, I would call them more orchestic chip... like an OST. I can smell your piano/classic music back ground? tongue... with this I meant it doesn't sound like anything like electronic whatever chip, but more classic smile

As long as you like it, you keep learning and have fun its all right!
