Madrid based synthesiser collective T37 will lead two days of workshops where you can build their DIY modular synth kits. We provide all the necessary components to build your device from scratch. All modules are Eurorack format.

No previous experience in electronics is necessary to take part in this workshop.

Please see the price list below for the full cost of what you’d like to build.

  • When you book your place you will be charged a £20 booking fee. With this item you will be booking a spot in our workshop.
  • This £20 booking fee will be deducted during the workshop from the price of the kit(s) of your choice. On the workshop day please bring cash to pay for your kit(s). We’ll email you to find out which device(s) you’d like to build.

The workshop takes place 11:00-19:00 on June 29th and 30th 2019. You can attend either or both of these days. 

 

T37 modules available:

The Gender Bender: A 7 channel trigger sequencer performance oriented plenty o generative patterns, each
channel has 5 independent parameters density, division, fill, velocity and duration.

Price: £210, Size: 28hp, Difficulty: Advanced, small SMD components.

 

Ardcore: Based on Darwin Grosse , 20 objects ardcore its an arduino tool meant for exploration and learning Arduino coding. It can be used as drum sampler, LFO, VCO, clock divider and so on. Available in SMD and through hole versions.

Price: £85, Size: 8hp (SMD) or 10hp (through hole), Difficulty: Medium (SMD) or easy (through hole).

 

Sequential Squanch: It’s a bidirectional 4-to-1 switch sequencer. It can connect in both ways any signal is send (audio, cv). It has a clock input to move the connected channel. Available in banana and minijack.

Price: £55, Size: 4hp, Difficulty: Medium, SMD components.

 

Stompbox: A dual channel interface to change levels from modular to line, and vice versa enabling the use of external processors like pedals or other musical instruments, equipments. Available in banana and minijack.

Price: £55, Size: 5hp, Difficulty: Medium, SMD components.

 

Mixer: An 8 channel mixer.

Price: £60, Size: 8hp, Difficulty: Easy, through-hole .

 

4Send: A quad send, useful to buffer signals and with attenuation control for performance.

Price: £35, Size: 4hp, Difficulty: Medium, 0805 SMD components.

 

ADfesio: 4 channel Pattern generator, but instead of gates/triggers it outputs 4 independent slopes. Each slope has dedicated attack and decay control, and can be triggered independently without using the pattern
generator engine.
Price: £100, Size: 10hp, Difficulty: Medium, 0805 SMD components.

 

BleepDrum: Inspired in the BleepDrum by BleepLabs its a 4 channel drum sample player, with independent inputs and pitch controls. Additionally you can punch-press patterns in a tap-tempo mode to record on the fly your tune. 4 Buttons allow for independent manual trigger of the sounds.

Price: £85, Size: 10hp, Difficulty: Medium, SMD components.

 

Standalone Devices

CHA/VES – Cheap Hacky Audio/Video Synth: The CHA/V is an simple and cheap VGA video synth with 6 VCO based on schmitt triggers, that glitches an VGA tester board to produce patterns and sound. It has two vactrols to further modulate and its patcheable with breadboard cables. It has 3 minijacks that can be used as outputs to hear the Oscillators, or inputs to create reactive glitch compositions. This is a standalone device.

Price: £80, Difficulty: Easy, through-hole components.

 

MIDI TO SOLENOIDS: A standalone device with a programmable microcontroller based on Arduino, that converts midi messages to triggers. It has 12 triggers outputs that can drive solenoids, dc motors or electromagnets and was conceived to create an electro acoustic instruments controlled via MIDI messages.

Price: £120, Difficulty: Easy, through-hole components.
