Goldfish Synthesizer

2 goldfish v3's in the dark

I built the original Goldfish synthesizer as a tiny plugin for a sequencer system running on WinCE PocketPC devices (see here).

Sadly, this platform has not survived the test of time. A new hardwore platform is under development to rescue the synth and some of its descentdants.

Requirements

  • an ARM core capable of running at anything over 50mhz (the PocketPC I had ran at 206mhz, which was enough to run the Goldfish in combination with several other synths/samples and the whole of Windows)
  • a decent audio output that is not TOO noisy.
  • a userinterface
  • WE DON’T NEED NO THREE OH THREE – WE’RE AS ACID AS CAN BE!
