synth research

I’ve been working on an analog synthesizer design approach which invites musical AND developmental creativity. So far Ive been playing with breadboard/control panel hybrid systems which allow knob tweaking and on-the-fly circuit development. We’ll see how it develops. In the meantime I’ve been having a lot of fun with an oscilloscope hooked up to my prototype unit. Its a long video but its worth a full play through. So many crazy patterns!

    I love the sounds you are getting with this! Will you be making it available? Many thanks. S

    @Simon. This circuit needs lots of work before I will consider making PCBs available. There is lots of info including schematics here. Its a crude little synth that uses a few cheap tricks to make cool sounds. You just need a few VCOs and a few ring modulators and you can do a lot of cool stuff! The magic comes from making feedback loops between the oscillators.

    I will check back to see if you ever do make the PCB available. Also did you make the other pcb’s available for the ‘mini modular noise synth?

    That is dope! After I graduate with my EE degree I’m considering the Institute of Sonology for my master’s studies — in many parts due to you. Looking forward to more updates! :)
