Ray Wilson - Music From Outer Space

Analog Synthesizer Do It Yourself - You have just discovered one of the coolest analog synth resources on the web. Check it out, build something cool, have fun.

Ray Wilson - Music From Outer Space

"This is a beginner project and I do recommend it as a first project or if you are just getting started in synths or electronics. The circuit, layout and wiring diagram are provided to help you succeed."

Try Building A Simple - Weird Sound Generator.

Try Building A Simple - Weird Sound Generator.

"This is a really fun project and it makes a LOT of weird sounds. You will have hours, no at least days... weeks of fun making weird sound after weird sound."

SynthBend - The Electronic Peasant

This is a Analogue Synthesizer Controller from The Peasant. It Aims to be an extremely versatile Musical Effects Equipment working with he "SynthCase System" which also can be found there.

SynthBend - The Electronic Peasant

SynthBend - The Electronic Peasant

Some of you may be aware of my Electronics Engineering community. A DIY question was asked by a young person ...

"I wish to build a modular style analogue synthesizer . I was wondering if anyone had any relevant circuit diagrams for oscillators, filters or amps etc .....Im really interested in building good circuits but in my own design ".

This made me add some of the Analog Synth Enthusiast Sites in this blog. I also realized that this is a good starting point for young minds to learn analog design. If a student or hobby learner is enthusiastic about some idea, he gets the drive to learn the basics on his own.

When a person who is learning, or even a professional, is passionate about what he is doing; he achieves what is called as Resonance in that filed of activity. This is when Innovations Sparks, this is when an Invention Manifests. This is the beginning of R&D.

Getting back to The Peasant in his own words about this device he created ...

"A classic control-voltage type keyboard and an Appendage ribbon controller would be the heart of the project, with many added features. A large quantity and variety of manual CV modulation controls, such as joysticks, potentiometers, and pressure sensors would also be included."

Analog Music and Sound Effect Synthesizer

Analogue Synthesizers you could build. Modular and Stand alone boxes. Simple schematics for the modules. The electronic analog basics to build your own synth.

Analog Four synthesizer by Elektron

"In 1997 a handful of students, who got together during a university course at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, made a rough prototype of a synthesizer."

"Elektron is an electronic musical instrument company, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, founded in 1998. Its products include the SID-based SidStation, the Machinedrum percussion synthesizer, the Monomachine synthesizer, the Octatrack performance sampler, and the Analog Four synthesizer."

 Electron  Analog Four 4 voice analog synthesizer

Analog oscillators, Opamp Filters, Ramps. Waveform Generators and Modulators. Generate Square, Sine, Sawtooth/Triangle waves with modulation and mixing.

Music From Outer Space
If you're into electronics, can solder and trouble-shoot, they have many cool analog synthesizer projects.

SDIY aka Synthesizer Do It Yourself
"When I was a teenager, back in the seventies I became fascinated by those weird sounding machines with those huge panels full of blinking light bulbs and knobs."

Analog Synthesizer Resources
"Many of these links are from the "Synth DIY" crowd, a community of electronic music enthusiasts who have collected together on the internet to share electronic design ideas and build synthesizer modules."
