Project Overview

The aim of this project is to research and develop a digital effects system with wireless MIDI control for the electric guitar.

Existing effects theory will be confirmed using Matlab, and unique algorithms developed and embedded in digital signal processing hardware. 

An 8051 based pedal board that will transmit control data over a wireless link to the digital signal processor located at the amplifier. Tshis control system will take advantage of existing MIDI protocol. 

A PC to DSP MIDI link will allow advanced user configuration through a Java based GUI.
