Shapetaker Audio has launched a new “Assemble Your Own Modular” (AYOM) project for people interested in building their own modular synth.
AYOM is an advanced DIY project, for people that are comfortable working from Gerbers & parts lists.
Here’s what they have to say about the project:
“So the idea is:
We take existing designs
We lay them out on PCBs
We prototype, build, and test them so you don’t have to!
You get the open source files (assembly guide, Gerbers for PCB manufacturing, and bill of materials for components)
You order components and PCBs (from the bill of materials, or from component kits)
You follow the assembly guide, and build your next module!”
So far, the project features 6 modules:
- Power supply (based on Music From Outer Space design)
- VCO (designed around the CEM3340)
- VCA (based on MFOS)
- VCF (24dB/Oct, based on MFOS)
- LFO (based on MFOS)
- Envelope Generator (ADSR, based on MFOS)
Details are available at the project Github site.
