I did a bit of jamming a few weeks ago and recorded the direct audio output, as well as video of me tweaking stuff. Enjoy!



More technical background info than you want:


The Korg Volca Beats (the little black box with blinky lights) is the drum machine at the center of this, which provides the timing for everything else. Its sync output is connected into the Arturia Keystep (the little white keyboard sitting on top of a larger one), making its arpeggiator synchronized with that drum machine. The Keystep then sends out MIDI data (notes to be played) to my DIY modular synthesizer on the right. With a cable from MIDI thru on there, the MIDI clock carries further synchronization pulses on to the mostly out of view Behringer Deepmind 6 in the top left, where I also tinker with an arpeggiator. The sound output of those three is combined with a Behringer Xenyx 1002 mixer, and recorded with a Zoom H2n recorder.


A bit more about the DIY modular synthesizer:


The modules in here are mainly based on circuits found on the internet (like on musicfromouterspace.com and birthofasynth.com), and some of the circuits are my own design. The circuit boards with all the components behind them are all designed by myself, most of them manufactured in cheap Chinese PCB plants, a few homemade. The front panels were also designed by me, and cut and engraved on a laser cutter at a makerspace. The enclosure is a modified IKEA "RAST" cabinet with some aluminum rails installed to mount the modules to.\
