When PT discovered this beautiful artifact from 1979, the Computer Perfection electronic memory game, we knew we had to transform it into a sci-fi drone synthesizer!

Luckily, this coincided with Jepler's work on the CircuitPython synthio library and the release of the Metro M7 -- a perfect confluence of events!

This project takes the Computer Perfection and reuses its buttons and switches to trigger a polyphonic, multi-timbral wavetable synthesizer for all your spacey jam sessions. It includes ADSR envelopes and LFO modulation for a beautiful, other-worldly sound.
