OscPocketD/Base - fx unit, synth, sampler, modulator using Daisy Seed

Post by oscillator »

The goal is to combine the Electosmith Daisy Seed with a 16x2 LCD Keypad to make a simple, inexpensive and portable audio tool running open source software. The OPD can also be controlled with CV and GATE signals and MIDI but this is optional. Last but not least – the OPD has a lot of modulation capabilities, including a simple sequencer.

Demo of the OPD/Base: https://youtu.be/0dvLaHLHw4w

All software is running on the Daisy MCU/microcontroller, including sound generation.

The OPD can handle up to 4 CV inputs and two potentiometers. The CV inputs are limited to 0-3V3, but can be scaled and offset in hardware and software.

The OPD can control up to 4 CV/GATE outputs, also limited to 3V3.

Currently the OPD has several different applications (firmwares):

OscPocketD/Base - A multi-fx tool with a two voice synth
OscPocketD/Synth - A portable beat/song-making tool (no CV/GATE support yet)
OscPocketD/Sampler- A sampler and sampleplayer

OPD is free software/open source. Download, build, learn, modify, improve and share.

A new version of the OscPocketD is now available at:
https://oscillator.se/opensource

New features:
- the Overdrive and Decimator are moved to after the Oscillator and before Filter etc
- the Overdrive now has a gain setting
- new modulator: Audio in
- audio merge - Audio in can be inserted AFTER all effects but before reverb for easy chaining of several units
- new modulator: EG/adsr
- all Special Modulators (including the sequencer) can now be synced to any other modulator (eg Gate in)
