The dance of the pocasynth!
Multiple builds completed at Synthfarm going totally crazy with both CV control and light control from the onboard LDRs.

Participants of SYNTHFARM 5 got to build and take these home.
This is also India's very first DIY synth project in collaboration with @animalfactoryamps

Thanks to @da.saz for the video
