The Ronin 802 is a new breed of stand alone digital synthesizer. This programmable hardware module is a versatile platform for the creation of custom electronic musical instruments and sound processing units. The Ronin 802 is also a fully compatible Arduino shield, allowing access to a rich ecosystem of hardware and software tools. All of the Ronin’s hardware and software design is available as an open source project – which is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. You can contribute to optimizations and changes in the hardware and software design, including reprogramming the synthesis engine – this makes the Ronin 802 a powerful and flexible platform for experimenting with digital synthesis.
For those of you who are not code monkeys, a Graphical User Interface is provided for programming and reconfiguring the Ronin’s various inputs, outputs and synthesis modules. Using the GUI, various parameters of the synthesis engine can be manipulated in real time to help you dial in the perfect sound and setup.
