mad scientist noise synth

I really like visual computer audio creation tools, and I’ve started playing around with Processing, controlP5 and Beads in order to prototype some sort of digital instrument. This little instrument is called plo (for no reason) and it’s a softh synth with 1 sine osc and a sampler.

All the knobs are not functional ~ as of yet – Feel free to play with the code – it’s a really simple example of how to match the interface to a music control. The grid pattern is not what really entices my imagination but I thought it was a nice first step in the creation of a digital instrument. EDIT: There is a new more functional version here hosted on OpenProcessing.
