This project is more of a way for me to learn more about electronics than it is a project to design a synth. That said, I very much hope a synth comes out the end of it.
Having been inspired by instruments such as the PPG Wave and Prophet VS as well as more traditional analogue synths, I wanted to see what the possibilities were for developing something similar using modern parts. The ultimate aim is a a digitally-controlled, all-analogue-signal-path polysynth (see the uPoly project) but this project will culminate in a standalone monosynth that represents one voice in the larger project.
I don't expect to break with mould with the synth's capabilities but I do want to make something that I'd be happy to play and to buy - and I want to buid a platform for future projects.
