I'm getting first sound from a new FPGA synth.  This one is a 55 voice polysynth using 55 digital waveguides to form a "harp" of 55 strings.  The harp is organized as 8 mini-harps each supporting up to 7 strings.  the state machine  processes all 8 mini-harps in parallel.  Sample rate is 198.14 KHz.  I'm currently working out the bugs and making adjustments, but it works!  It is MIDI triggered with an embedded PicoBlaze controller.
