Check out the new SparkPunk Sequencer!

August 31, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The SparkPunk Sequencer is a musical control voltage sequencer designed to control the SparkPunk Sound Kit. With the pair, you can create ten-step musical motifs, but there are hidden opportunities in the sequencer: it can be modified and connected to external hardware in clever and interesting ways. The SparkPunk Sequencer cycles among ten steps, reading the slider and switch for each, producing corresponding analog voltages on the output pins. It offers hands-on control, with its array of knobs, sliders, and switches while seamlessly integrating with the SparkPunk Sound Generator for your creative musical enjoyment.

Sparkfun has published a Theory and Applications Guide for the Sequencer Kit that explains how the sequencer works and also details several useful mods. Mods include adjustable sequence length, CV out for standard analog gear, synchronizing sequencers and more.

Note: The Sparkfun Sequencer is a solderable kit with lots of parts.

The Sparkfun Sequencer Kit is available for US $59.95.

Mini OONTZ – 3D Printed MIDI Controller

August 3, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

In this project we’re building a diy midi controller that works with ios devices and analog synths. Say hello to OONTZ, the open source button grid controller based on the adafruit trellis. The mini OONTZ is a 3d printed case housing one trellis and 4 potentiometers ideal for a 16 button drum pad. OONTZ works with any MIDI software and hardware. No more virtual midi or serial to MIDI stuff, oontz is legit USB MIDI.

DIY MIDI Controller
Say hello to OONTZ, the open source button grid controller based on the Adafruit Trellis button platform.

The mini OONTZ is a 3d printed case housing one trellis and 4 potentiometers ideal for a 16 button drum pad. In this project we’re building a diy midi controller that works with ios devices and analog synths.

OONTZ works with any MIDI software and hardware. No more virtual midi or serial to MIDI stuff, oontz is legit USB MIDI.”
Adafruit Trellis
This PCB is specially made to match the Adafruit 4×4 elastomer keypad. Each Trellis PCB has 4×4 pads and 4×4 matching spots for 3mm LEDs. The circuitry on-board handles the background key-presses and LED lighting for the 4×4 tile. However, it does not have any microcontroller or other ‘brains’ – an Arduino (or similar microcontroller) is required to control the Trellis to read the keypress data and let it know when to light up LEDs as desired.

Korg MS20 Kit Build Timelapse

April 4, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

I built the MS20 Kit – one of only 1,000 available. Be sure to check out our full review coming soon. Music: Intellijel Atlantis through Behringer X32 with Vintage Room freeze reverb for pads, stereo delay.

The MS-20 Kit is a true-analog, 1:1 scale reissue of the MS-20, with both filters built in (the more aggressive early production filter and more mellow late production one). Every details has been replicated, right down to the packaging, which includes a letter from the original MS-20 engineers and the President of Korg, Inc.

The Korg MS-20 kit has a street price of about $1,400.

Construction time again: ARP 2600 Clone Time Lapse

April 2, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

TTSH – ARP 2600 Clone Time Lapse Build. Track includs only sound from the finished TTSH, some additinal delay and eq :).

Martin Widmann documents his build of the ARP 2600 clone, the  Two Thousand Six Hundred (TTSH) synthesizer.  TTSH  is based on the classic ARP 2600. It’s one of the nicest DIY projects and a a very complex build. The TTSH is available as a kit containing PCBs and front panel. Nothing is pre-built and no components are included, so you have to source your own parts.

The video is a time-lapse video, 36,852 pictures, taken every 5 seconds. The full build is shown, including: ttsh, midi interface, case, calibration & bug fixing.

The soundtrack was made with only the finished TTSH.
