This guide will show you how to use a QT Py ESP32-S2 running CircuitPython to control a Pure Data patch over WiFi. Pure Data is an open source programming language that can be used to create musical applications. It's a visual programming language that lets you drag and drop code blocks into the software interface to create the patches.

The QT Py ESP32-S2 is soldered to a charger BFF. This allows the project to run on a LiPo battery.

An ADXL343 accelerometer controls the synthesizer patch's filters. A TSC2007 and resistive touch screen are used to send notes to the synth patch.

The build is housed in a 3D printed case that can be held in your hand.
