MIDI Synthesizer

Project Lead Frank Buss     Location Cologne, Germany

MIDI Synthesizer is a polyphonic software synthesizer. It runs on an STM32F4 Discovery board and provides a MIDI-in port (standard 3 pin DIN connector) to connect a MIDI piano. The on-board I2S DAC of the Discovery board is used to generate stereo sound. There are rotary encoders, knobs, LEDs and an OLED display to control and visualize the synthesizer parameters. The synthesizer can also be controlled over USB-MIDI, for example to use it as an output device from a sequencer on a PC, and all parameters can be controlled with CC commands as well.
