Two rotary encoders and two potentiometers.

So this was done quite a while ago... it's an Arduino wavetable based oscillator. In this instance, I have two oscillators running out one PWM channel. The wavetable is 8-bit with 256 sample points. At the moment I have three waveforms to choose from: sine, triangle, and sawtooth. I'll be harvesting others to play with. … Continue reading Knobs + Oscillator
I stayed up a little late last night and added the LCD I mentioned in my last post to my setup. I left the LEDs in the circuit to help debug the signaling to the panel which was a good thing as when I first powered the circuit, nothing showed up on the LCD. After … Continue reading Shifty LCD

In the process, I got practice soldering, tweaking the filter by looking at the output with an o’scope, reading resistors and the like. Lots of … Continue reading Mini
