Control – a NES controller to Eurorack synthesizer module

March 10th, 2012 § 0 comments

Jordan Bartee and I co-designed a module for Eurorack that allows you to control your synth with a NES controller! It was my first panel design for Euro, and it was a lot of fun – I’m quite pleased with the layout’s personality. We finished our prototype tonight, and will release all our work as Open Source Hardware after some more testing. Excitingly, Control will be a part of Jordan’s larger Ming Mecca voltage controlled video game system.

It outputs button presses as gates, logs X/Y axis activity as steady DC voltages, has a Machinedrum inspired turbo mode, and listens for cheat codes that turn it into a fantastically quirky oscillator…
