The Zynth80 is a polyphonic midi-controlled analogue synthesizer
built upon the Z80 microprocessor. Sound is generated by a set of
3 VCOs, each with a selection of 4 different waveforms: sine,
square, triangle and sawtooth. A single VCF offers adjustable
resonance and cutoff capabilities. The control box offers 2 knobs
for controlling the filter settings, as well as a 3rd knob for
adjusting the pulsewidth of the VCOs. Additionally, a series of
switches is present for selecting the waveforms and activating
sync. The Zynth80 is an 8bit monster that wails hard.
Special thanks Nerdasaurus Ray Wilson for his DIY synth schematics
which we used extensively. Greets to everyone in the team for being
totally insane and spending a week living in the microprocessor lab.
