The Mini Pyramid Synth

This is a quick test of the Mini Pyramid Synth, created by thenervoussquirrel:

This was commissioned by Jay Gambit, after seeing the larger pyramid designed by Pete Fowler, commissioned by XL Recordings for The Horrors. This unit contains a MFOS phaser and WSG.

The electronics are based on circuits from Ray Wilson’s Music From Outer Space.

  1. Very cool design. Nice use of EL, too. The audio sounds nice, I know from experience the EL drivers can get very noisy, and generally need to be well isolated from audio lines!

    • Nice website, Brendan. Where did you gather your know-how to go about building your own midi controllers? I have a PIC and a Raspberry Pi knocking about at home and would like to give it a go.

      Also, I just myself discovered the Music From Outer Space site a few months back and love the thought of building one of the ‘starters synths’.

      …I don’t think this summer is going to be long enough.
