This workshop is part of We Are Robots Festival at The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, E1 6Q London, on 4th and 5th November.

DIY workshop about percussion and distortion modules led by øpen-hardware team “000” + Signum device with Victor Mazon!

Modules are both stand-alone and Eurorack. The workshop will cover both theory and practice about analogue circuit design, percussion and noise. No previous experience in electronics is needed but interest and patience is mandatory.

In this workshop participants can also build and take home their own Signum device, which is designed to experiment with hidden signals and usually un-hearable sounds. The device includes a transducer, optical, coil, germanium diode and small loop antenna that will allow you to both to listen to and record the sounds hidden in the electromagnetic spectrum. The workshop will also cover the use of the electromagnetic spectrum in art practice. With Victor Mazon Gardoqui.

YKINMKATO Distortion Lab Interface £165

This new module started in our workbench as a platform to develop all the 000 effect modules, and now has become one of the favorite 000 modules for the audience, a 000 distortion laboratory interface featuring:

- VCA In/Out and dry/wet,  all 3 CV controllable.

- True Bypass and 3 parameters (X/Y/Z) for different "shield distortions” that will be  produced during 2018

The module comes with a 000 version of the famous Proco-Rat bass distortion, with some extras and mods to work nicely for drone and percussive sounds, adapted modular impedance and eurorack (10v) audio levels.

The kit also includes a 000 perforated board where to design your own distortion. On the following months we will develop and upload more distortion designs, as shields, to be used by the community and attached at the back of the module.

Control: Att IN, Att OUT, Dry/wet, X/Y/Z
Button: Bypass, Diode Clipping
CV: CV Input Audio IN, CV Audio Output, CV Dry/wet
Inputs: Audio In
Output: Audio Out
RAT Distrotion: X Texture, Y Distortion and Z volume
