The Hard Soft Synth 3f is a small arduino based synth.
Analog effect:
It has a lowpass filter that is controlled from the synth with a 
led > ldr combination.
The resonance can be set with a potentiometer.
There is a vertical adjust potentiometer, that can be used to clip the audio.
io: it has a trigger input and trigger out via mini jacks, also via ir sync.
Synth settings: all synth settings are set by 6 potentiometers.
One potentiometer is used to select a synth, and the other 
potentiometers can be used to adjust the synth.
Scripts: At the moment there is one finished script that can be used, 
that has 16 Synths. and another one is in the works that will 
probably have about 8 synths or more. There are drone type of synths, 
noise synths, a drum sequencer with kick and noisy hh, a 303 type of 
synth, a arpegiator, and a click type of synth... but more are in the 

You must bring:
soldering iron!
