Jarmaggeddon – The Mason Jar Synthesizer

Here’s what the developer has to say about it:

Jarmaggeddøn is a battery pøwered synth in a jar with ønly øne parameter: glitch. I’m nøt really sure høw it wørks. It høsts a lump øf cøde i wrøte that purpøsefully creates unpredictable and disgusting results!

The ønbøard unipølar (0-5v) cv input alløws yøu tø mødulate the glitch amøunt. If yøu’re a nøøb tø DIY yøu’ll løve this puppy – it’s hella easy tø assemble.

  1. For those not fortunate enough to have lived through the exciting times of dial-up connections and BBS’s in the 80’s to early 90’s, this is what it sounded like when someone in your house picked up a phone while you were connected with your 1200bps modem. Following by the screaming of “You kicked me off, I was online!”

    1. Late 80’s to the early 90’s? Pfft, in my Soviet Russia childhood days I’ve been using dial-up ’til like 2002 or something. And I’m not kidding. Mind you, I even was using floppy drives until couple of years prior to then. Not to mention that a 3.2MP digital camera would cost $200 back in those times, and would often come with a 16MB memory card.
