TSynth - Teensy 4.1 based DIY polyphonic programmable synthesizer
TSynth is a low cost, highly capable, 12 note polyphonic synthesizer that you build yourself. The cost of components to build a working TSynth is around $99. It can store and recall patches, and is controllable via the front panel or MIDI (CC, patch recall, pitch bend and modulation wheel.) It can accept MIDI via a USB Host port (plug your MIDI Class Compliant keyboard directly in), USB Client (appears as a MIDI device on a computer for your DAW) and classic MIDI 5 pin DIN. It has both analogue and USB digital audio.
Please read the Build Guide before you purchase! Although it isn't particularly challenging to solder and build (two hours), this is not suitable as a first project. Also you need to satisfy yourself that you can buy the rest of the components needed to complete it. These are very common or easily available from various global sources however and the total cost of components is aimed at $99. You also need to make an enclosure - laser cut / 3D printed case plans are available from the website.
This is a partial kit. You will have to source additional parts to complete this project and assembly is required. See what's included in the details below
You are buying the following, as seen in the pictures:
The front panel (the red PCB)
The main PCB with SMD components already soldered: two 4067 multiplexers, 6N137 based MIDI In opto-coupler, buffer for MIDI thru and all resistors and capacitors (the green PCB)
A tested IPS 80x160 ST7735 SPI colour display
A 3D printed standoff for the display (the small black plastic part)
You need to buy the rest of the components (Teensy 4.1, Audio Board Rev D, 33 potentiometers, an encoder, 7 buttons, connectors...) and anything you want to make the enclosure, yourself. The open source code, build guide and plans for the enclosure are all available.
12 note polyphony, 24 oscillators, velocity sensitive, versatile PWM control, detune, white & pink noise, pitch envelope, dynamic & chord unison, XOR and cross modulation, state variable filter, separate LFOs for pitch and filter, two envelope generators, stereo chorus, patch save, delete and recall, three MIDI IN choices, MIDI thru, USB digital audio out...... A long list of features is available from the website electrotechnique.cc
