Hamster (a.k.a Mike Field) has started a new topic on our community forum to share with us his new “Music Box” project that he made using his Papilio FPGA board and the LogicStart MegaWing.
The Synth project can actually carry a tune by make the correct sound at the correct time and the sound can be improved by adding an ‘envelope’ to its beeps and changing the envelope volume over time.
Hamster was kind enough to send us a bit file that Jack has uploaded to the Papilio and recorded a video to show us the music box project in action:
“It plays Brahms Lullaby in monophonic glory! One pair of switches changes between a Sine wave and a richer waveform I made in a spreadsheet. Other pairs control the envelope (Attack, decay and release rates). I’m thinking of using the ADC on the LogicStart to give me analogue control inputs…”
