In collaboration with our long-time partner, element14, the Elektor Academy is excited to announce the first webinar of the new year. In this webinar Clemens Valens will focus on the J²B Synthesizer, an open-minded digital music platform. This project was born after Clemens discovered the Atmegatron music synthesizer from Soulsby Synthesizers. This synthesizer is built around an ATmega328 8-bit AVR microcontroller from Atmel, the same that is at the heart of the Arduino Uno board. The design of the Atmegatron presents several interesting aspects that attracted Clemens’ attention and that ultimately resulted in a 12-page article about this synthesizer to be published in Elektor’s January & February 2015 double edition.
Instead of a single-channel 8-bit Arduino based design, the J²B Synthesizer employs a powerful 32-bit Cortex M3 processor to produce two channels of sound. The novel sound engine offers a large choice of filter and distortion algorithms resulting in a unique sound with a bite. The platform is 100% open to personal adaptation and taste. Even the mechanical design is open, and so is this webinar. Headphones on!
