As a thesis subject for our master “Intelligent Electronics”, Alex Motteux and myself, Frederik De Greef, have chosen to create a Do-It-Yourself synthesizer package with an educational focus. The goal of the project is to make the user familiar with electronics and sound synthesis throughout the building process.

In order to achieve this we are developing a general synthesizer with basic functionality, but with alternative interfacing methods. Forget the image of keyboards and lots of buttons, instead think of more intuitive ways to create sound. For example blowing on a horn, or using the slider of a slide trombone.
