Axoloti is an integrated platform for digital audio: its graphical editor is an easy-to-use toolbox for creating sound synthesis or processing algorithms. The audio processing runs on a microcontroller board, and runs standalone after editing.
Axoloti creates compilable c++ code from a graphical network of objects and connections, and automates the compilation, upload and execution of the resulting code on the target hardware. While running, parameters (presented as controls on objects in the document) can be tweaked from the host computer, and variables are read back (presented as numbers, virtual LEDs, graphs...) on the objects, in real time.
The Axoloti hardware has standard audio and MIDI in- and output, but also general purpose I/O, enabling easy development of custom "new" musical instruments.
