We build a lot of our own gear, and lead building workshops. Custom PCBs from these activities are for sale.
- Participants in the Electronoize Playshops built a variety of CMOS-based noise devices (sometimes called "Lunettas") on wireless breadboards, and needed a way to move their completed designs to something more robust for gigging. The Looney Board provides a flexible platform to do just that. As an open platform, it can be used to build a all sorts of CMOS-based sound devices.
- We now have a simpler version, focused specifically on the 40106 chip, which allows folks to build up to 6 simple oscillators. We've used these extensively for introductory workshops, they make great projects for makers fairs or classroom use. We provide a complete step-by-step presentation for such a workshop, using 3 of the oscillators controlled by photocells as a stand-alone noise makers. Lots of other configurations are possible.
- We also sell PCBs based on early Buchla synthesizer modules. Long out of production, original 100 series modules fetch collector's prices; these PCBs allow folks to experiment with these wonderful "obsolete" circuits
All PCBs are provided on an as-is basis for personal use only. Only PCBs are supplied; additional parts and assembly are required. These are minimally supported projects meant for experienced DIYers; you need to be able to read schematics, source parts, stuff and solder the boards, wire off-board components, troubleshoot, and figure out the mechanical aspects such as front panels and housing.
PCBs are $15.00@ ($10 for the 40106 HexOsc); ppd in the US, additional $10.00 postage/handling (per order) outside the US. Use the Paypal "Add to Cart" buttons to purchase. Make sure your shipping address is included in the paypal transaction.
