WatchOut! - DIY-Mini-Synthesizer
by romanjurt, published
Make noize! A solar-powered-two-bottons-control-mini-synthesizer that let's you skretch with light and produce fat beats and strange sounds!
The WatchOut!-Synthesizer makes sound due to a program on an attiny13-chip! Dependent on the light intensity, a solarpanel reads this program and gives the power for the sound production. The more light shines on the cell, the higher and louder the pitch. There are different programs which defines the function of the two buttons. Because of the inconstant power-source the processing of attiny13 is very unstable, which actually gives us nice sounds!
