OscPocketD/Drums - a new firmware for the OPD platform

OPD - the Daisy Pocket Platform - combines the Electosmith Daisy Seed with a 16x2 LCD Keypad to make a simple, inexpensive and portable audio tool running open source software.

Currently the OPD has several different applications (firmwares):

  • OscPocketD/Base - A multi-fx tool with a two voice synth, CV/GATE in and out
  • OscPocketD/Drums - An 8-track drum machine with a sequencer, sync and several sounds
  • OscPocketD/Synth - A portable beat/song-making tool (no CV/GATE support yet)
  • OscPocketD/Sampler- A sampler and sampleplayer, CV/GATE in and out
  • OscPocketD/VASynth - A MIDI virtual analog polyphonic synthesizer

NEW! The OPD/Drums features:

  • 8 drum tracks
  • sequencer with up to 64 steps, adjustable track length
  • adjustable accent
  • save/load sounds and sequences in 16 slots
  • internal adjustable tempo
  • external sync
  • sync out
  • trig mode to control 4 sounds with external trig signal

The OPD/Drums sequencer features 8 drum tracks with many adjustable sound parameters:

  • 3 types of bass/kick (analog, synthetic, OPD) with delay and overdrive
  • snare with delay and overdrive
  • hihat open/closed with delay
  • crash with delay
  • ride with delay
  • clap with delay
  • tom hi with delay
  • tom lo with delay

The OPD family is free software/open source!

Download, build, learn, modify, improve and share!

Thanks @ben_serge! The drum firmware started as I wanted to try the drum DSP classes you have provided in DaisySP.

I’ll try to make a video demo of the drum machine, all the others already have video demos :slight_smile: (linked here: Open source – OSCILLATOR).

@ben_serge: Short and not very good demo, but at least it is something.

The Seed unfortunately couldn’t handle the Synthetic + Analog Snare and Hihat classes, while doing everything else, so although there is code in the project to use them, they are not selectable.
