Picosynth - Simple mouse-drawing synth made for Pico8

Picosynth is controlled by drawing a waveform on the canvas that gets played back.
I recommend you run on your local console through splore as the web edition has issues. This also allows you to record clips and save them.

Picosynth works by filling up a buffer with copies of data from the canvas and outputting it to the speakers.
It also includes a fast-fourier transform to display frequencies and control the robot avatar.

Very fun! It was interesting to do PWM manually. I feel like the sine wave sounded noisier than I expected?

Great cart, and the audio-responsive visual glitches and robot are very nice touches.
