Slide Synth

The Slide Synth is a simple PWM synth played like a slide whistle. I've always loved the sounds from old school video games, many of which were PWM based. So, with this project I wanted to create a synthesizer that was inexpensive, easy to build, and easy to play. The circuit isn't quite finished yet, but it is definitely simple, and open to a number of cool variations.


Despite not playing the guitar I really like working on guitar pedals. This particular pedal began as a Christmas gift for my brother-in-law, but has gradually evolved to include a few extra features, and a few ideas that I've always wanted to see implemented in guitar pedals. Of course like any DIY project there are a number of variations and personalizations to choose from.
