Build Your Own Synths!

A few months back wilderness made a post about a Gakken synth that you build yourself. While this unit is quite easy to put together, there are many more kits that you can get that require a decent amount of electrical knowledge. Pictured above on the left is the xoxbox, a tb-303 clone that you put together yourself. This is definitly the best sounding clone out there and at way less than half the price, you can have your own tb-303. If you want to get crazy with it, you can even modify it yourself and get a completely unique machine. Another cool DIY synth I found was the Voice of Saturn. This one is really nice because you can add on other Voice of Saturn kits like a sequencer and a filter. If you want to be a punk bitch, you can also buy these products pre-assembled from Curious Inventor With all the crazy expensive gear out there, it is a very viable option for the adventerous musician. If your willing to learn some basic soldering skills and don’t mind a headache or two, you can really build some amazing things. And think, if you can do this then why not build your own cables and fix your own broken equipment. With the economy being so bad, try saving yourself some money while gaining some electrical knowledge.
