MICROCOSMOS is intended as a community driven project, it's open-source nature allows him to be used in many different contexts. In fact, Microcosmos was born thinking of 4 categories of users: - The Musician who knows nothing about code that by simply installing a DSP code produced by the community has a new instrument every day - The Musician Maker who wants to build his sound starting from the code without worrying about the hardware - The developer who wants to prototype a tool before working on the hardware to test its feasibility - The teacher and the student in the field of audio and signal processing. Microcosmos can be a Sampler, a Synthesizers, a MIDI Monitor, MIDI sequencer, a DRONE machine and more! By simply changing the software, you change the behaviour of the machine The rich supply of connections makes it suitable for any use. - Stereo Audio Input - Stereo Audio Output - MIDI IN and MIDI OUT (on universal trs 3.5 jack) - USB HOST - Onboard microphone - SD Card And also the completeness of the UI 1 OLED RGB Display 5 RGB Encoders with push buttons 5 Push buttons with leds 16+1 RGB leds
We have dealt with the academic world and one of the shortcomings that students often express is in the practical part of electronic realization. Usually simple circuits are made, on unstable breadboards that do not allow a real level of specialization and deepening. With the microcosmos this step is zeroed, the coder or the musician can concentrate only on the code. Thanks to the 600MHz ARM processor and memory expansions, it can be a long-lasting tool for learning and playing at the same time. Right now we are using it with FAUST as a DSP language but it can also be programmed in C ++ with the Arduino toolchain.
