To take part in this workshop you don’t have to be a soldering specialist. The project is for beginners, but if you the proud owner of two left hands this might not be the ideal project for you
During the workshop we will look at the basics of analogue sound generating. A peak into the magic world of electronic parts that generate sounds straight from mars. Participants will learn the basics of soldering, the main remarks, and how to read values of the different electronic parts and how to start future projects.
After the soldering will be finished all participants will build there own wooden case for the synthesizer. The next step will be to design the front plate of this little noise maker. When everything is finished all participants will join each other and form a orchestra that will present all instruments in a live concert directed by Ronnie Deelen.
