Digital waveform synthesis article

I've been thinking a lot about music synthesizers recently.  I reckon that you can do some really good work with PSoC3 and PSoC5.  I decided to split my researches up into analogue and digital pieces.  The first episode of my thoughts on digital wavwform synthesis can be found at http://www.analog-eetimes.com/en/direct-waveform-synthesis-using-filter-like-techniques.html?cmp_id=71&news_id=222903728.  In a couple of weeks I'll post the part with more detail on how to actually create these waveforms.  Later on in the year I hope to actually get the opportunity to produce working code examples!

Meanwhile, a retro analogue synth is full of all kinds of circuitry that demonstrates interesting design technique.  I'll be making some more contributions to the Elektor PSoCaMorph project soon (the Editor's name, but my idea).  I wanted to design a really good VCO to use as a master oscillator, and I think the basic circuit techniques are well worth deploying in other non-musical applications.  Check out http://www.elektor-projects.com/project/the-psocamorph.12269.html, sign up and register your vote!  Our lovely marketing department has agreed to make some development kits available to people who want to collaborate on bringing this project into being.  All for now!  best / Kendall
