Metal Synth - Build/Solder your own Metal Percussion Synthesizer

A workshop from EMF 2022 by Darren Blaxcell -

On Friday June 3, 2022 at in Workshop 3

Participants can build a Metal Synth Kit, learn to solder and become familiar with circuit boards and components along the way.

The Rakit Metal Synth has a Polivok’s inspired filter at its core. It uses this, along with a punchy AD envelope to produce a variety of percussive sounds from shaped noise. The filter is switchable between band pass and low pass modes and a resonance control featuring self oscillation at high resonance settings.

Please bring a smartphone to browse the instructions or any of your own equipment.

Two experienced engineers will be on hand to steer people in the right direction and offer a helping hand. Please, ask us questions!
