Now, _this_ is what I'm talking about. (Thanks, @sonicnick

BassBoy is a monophonic digital MIDI controlled bass synthesizer. Device receives all information via MIDI input (mono connector). The Idea The author of this device, Aleksandar Krstic, had a childhood dream of bulding his own version of one brand of then famous MIDI synthesizer. As he learned more and more about sound processing, he also developed interest in programming. When the worlds of music and programming met, he started building great signal processing algorithms. And soon after, idea for BassBoy was born. In order to utilize each and every single CPU cycle, Aleksandar wrote the firmware in plain assembly. This is why BassBoy runs smoothly even on 8-bit ATXMega32D4 microcontroller. Signal processing Sampling frequency is 31.25KHz which generates audio range up to 15.625Khz. Although it's based on 8-bit processor, the signal processing inside the unit is 16-bit. Si...
