IMPLEMENTATION OF INNOVATIVE LOW COST MUSIC SYNTHESIZER USING FPGA

Abstract
Music synthesizer opens enormous possibilities of generation of new music by employing number of innumerable combinations. In this work, implementation of music synthesizer is done with the use of digital logic concepts. It is employed on FPGA platform with the use of verilog hardware descriptive language. The work is aimed to make this innovative design very adaptive, scalable and highly miniaturized. By sophisticated algorithm implementation of digital logic blocks, full octave notes (Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa) are generated and tested. Implementation is analyzed on Cyclone EP1C6Q240C8, Cyclone II EP2C20F484C7 and Stratix EP1S10F780C6ES FPGA families. Design performance is investigated with above logic devices for area, power consumption and timing constrains. Design is capable of automatic octave tone generation as well as manual key press tone generation.
