Matt Bradshaw is a musician, maker and programmer with a degree in physics and a love for making new musical instruments. You may remember his PolyMod modular digital synthesizer from the 2018 Hackaday Prize, where it made the semifinals of the Musical Instrument Challenge. PolyMod is a customizable, modular synthesizer that uses digital rather than analog circuitry. That seemingly simple change results in a powerful ability to create polyphonic patches, something that traditional analog modular synths have a hard time with.
Please join us for this Hack Chat, in which we'll cover:
- The hardware behind the PolyMod, and the design decisions that led Matt to an all-digital synth
- The pros and cons of digital music
- Where the PolyMod has gone since winning the Musical Instrument Challenge semifinals
You also might want to check out the Modular Synth Discussion, a very active chat that digs into the guts of all sorts of modular synthesizers.
