Member Masterclass: Circuitry & Synth-Making

Member Masterclass: Circuitry & Synth-Making

Wednesday 20 February 2019 10:00am - 12:00pm

Digital logic was never meant to be used to make music, so that’s exactly what Jakub Zalesak is going to teach us how to do. In the process, we’ll walk through the process of designing a Printed Circuit Board, learn how to solder beautiful builds, explore the niche world of logic synthesizers from triangles and squares to the hard nasal sound of oscillator sync, and take a peek at the nature of sound and electricity. You will leave with a synth to impress (or annoy) your friends and hopefully new views on what makes sound.
