DIY Teensy Arcade Synth | Tutorial & Presets Demo

Hey All! Using the Teensy Audio Library and Teensy 4.0, I built a 3-layer polyphonic synthesizer. The addition of an LCD and a rotary encoder provides quick access to all the synth parameters (I got the idea from MiniDexed). The entire build was surprisingly easy! All the DSP is handled by the Teensy Audio Library and is configured using the Audio Design Tool. The most time-consuming part was coding the menu navigation and connecting the parameter interactions. All in all, I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

I made a video covering how it was built and demoing the stock presets. If anyone wants to have a go at making some presets, pull requests are welcome! :D
