DIY synthesizers part 1

2015-11-01 15.07.58

I’ve been making my own synthesizers for the last few months.  It started with a challenge from my friend August.  August pointed me to the $25 Sythrotek Atari Punk Console kit at makershed.   Prior to this I had been messing with Arduino synthesizers (primarily using the under-respected Mozzi library).  We ordered some noise box kits and when they arrived, started awkwardly soldering.

My favorite thing is that I’m learning an astounding amount every day.  I think that is how it goes whenever you dive into something that you didn’t know much about!

Shout out to Synthrotek and Dr. Bleep.  I started with some kits and am now building my own little noiseboxes inspired by the kits (and any number of fine internet peeps).  Here are a few photos from the early builds including a my finished APC kit in the DIY wooden box.
