DIY Synth - Arduino project

Today I built a DIY synth based on some ideas I found on the web.

Here's some build photos and a video.

First I soldered the 5k pots to a piece of PTP DIY board. I got the pots and board from ebay. I added the pin header strip connectors so I can connect and remove the Arduino from the pots if I want to. The output jack also uses pin headers for easy removal. I bought a bunch of 1x40 Pin 2.54mm Pin header strips from ebay.

Here's the "pot bridge" connected.

Here's the prototype box. I used a cardboard box I found lying in my garbage. It's probably a box a wallwart shipped in.

Here's a video that demonstrates my Auduino:

How is it that your Auduino sounds so much smoother than all the other videos I find?

Perhaps it sounds smoother because I am running it into pro recording gear and the others are possibly not doing that? I don't know how the others did their recordings...

You can "smooth" almost any audio signal by applying compressor/limiter to the signal and a delay box doesn't cost much while adding a lot to the vibe.

I use guitar pedals or build my own.

Of course there are VST/AU plug-ins that you can use also.

man, you're living the artistic-adventure life I'm dreaming! I'm about to build an Auduino and you're one of my sources, thanks for the tips and demos and guidance!
