About the Project

The VRS-1 Analog/Digital Guitar Synthesizer is a senior design project for the University of Central Florida EECS department. The main goals of the project were funcionality, accuracy, and portability. It features a multitude of effects including tremelo, arpeggiation, envelope control, LFO, and vibrato, and allows for a vast array of wave shaping choices that help the musician to achieve the desired sound. The device uses a hexaphonic pickup that allows for polyphonic playing, with each string having its own wave-shaping controls. The standard output works with any amplifier's line level audio input.
