Ultimate Mono Synth
I have been designing the ultimate mono synth, with Prophet 5 / Pro one style modulation.
Please look through these votes and let me know your thoughts on the design.
Should I cut things to save money i.e Switches for oscillator waveform or have pots for mixing levels. This is for the mod routing too, a switch for destination or level control for the destination.
Having a programmable synth is simple enough, it just adds extra cost of DACs or sample/hold for the parameters, bearing in mind there could be up to 25 parameters on this synth. The daughterboard CPU option means you can buy a standard PCB or a programmable PCB with DACs etc.
The filter is going to be a daughterboard anyway, but out of interest which would be the most popular board.
LFO – Add a triangle/square on the board (not syncable) or just leave inputs to the summers of the parameters to mod.
