My ARM Cortex-M4F Synthesizer (Video Included)

Here's the current status of my ARM Cortex-M4F Synthesizer. Using a Tiva LaunchPad (ARM Cortex-M4F) development board and some various circuitry for MIDI input and audio output I've created a fully functioning synthesizer as shown in the video demonstration below.

The code is written in C…
