Soundgin - a programmable sound generator
Theis an 18-Pin Microchip PIC18F1320 that has been programmed to generate complex sounds.
Sounds are generated by incorporating six oscillators which can interact with each other in various ways.
The oscillators are configured by sending short serial commands to the Soundgin via the RX pin. These configurations result in the Soundgin's oscillators continuously generating sound.
The Soundgin also contains presets that can be used to configure the oscillators to generate predefined sound such as a Gong, Steam Engine, Etc...
The six are spit up into two identical units referred to as Sound Engines.
