Who doesn’t love an analog synth? Better still, who doesn’t love a homemade analog synth?! Yes, indeed the Homebrew Analog Sound Synthesizer Solder Build Kit is a newly-released box of synthesis beauty, which comes in kit form ready to solder yourself!
This glorious little box comes comes with a 3D printed case with a choice of colours to choose from. Looking at the front panel, you’ll find a single Oscillator with controls for frequency, LFO and envelope depth, as well as a low pass filter, LFO and envelope section to sculpt the sound. It has a 3.5mm socket to connect to headphoens or an external mixer/device – as well as a nice array of knobs and switches to put you in control.
The kit comes fully complete and includes a speaker, a 9V battery, jumper wires, potentiometers, switches, capacitors, resistors, diodes and all ICs (integrated circuits) included). Upon purchase you’ll find a schematic wiring diagram and a BOM included, so you can get started on home brewing this little beast!
It’s a superb educational project for those new to synthesis to learn about the early days of electronic sound. It’s sold by RetroTechLyfe who are based in Utah, USA, offering some fantastic retro tech solutions.
