what is it all about ?


well... the main idea for this project was born at hm i guess round about x-mas '04 when oxo (a good pal of mine) and me were chatting about our stuff and we were complaining about how bad and slow all is...

we were using until now only 8 bit processors and we are totally fed up with that stuff... just too limited...just too slow... before we used only 8051 derivatives from atmel or pics from mircochip...

and unforunately no of the current for the public available 8 bit cpus fit our needs...

so what about something new ? what about a step into the next generation !? no 8 bit crap ?! something which hmm well sounds like a dream to every home brewed developer... there were two company names... motorola or analog devices...

our decition was analog devices... first we thought about the blackfin... but so far i know all are in a ballpin package... ok forget it...next one was sharc... sharc !...SHARC 21065!!... i have a plusar II which has some of these 21065 sharcs...

that was the idea... so this project is about a home brewed 21065 sharc based synth project (ultraSHARK) ...without using any analog devices tools or development boards...!

ok sorry no diy (do it yourself) but anyway... this site is about my development experiences with the sharc processor...and stuff i'm fighting with...


so let's see if this dream of a sharc based synth becomes realtity...



at the moment here is not very much content... this is a future project so it will be filled up a bit more in the next time...

by the way...maybe you are interested in my ultra303 tb 303 replacement project ultra303
and have a look to my harmonic theory programm ultrachord
