Version 12
    FPGA MIDI Music Synthesizer

    element14 presents   |  Andy West's VCP Profile |  Project Videos



    Have you ever wondered how digital synthesizers work? In today's video, Andy shows how to build one with just a handful of parts. He'll use a standard MIDI interface and line-level output for maximum compatibility, and an FPGA for maximum fun!


    The documents for the code is attached below.
