From Digital Bits to Analog Waves: Breadboarding an 8-bit Synth

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Using only digital logic and handful of wires and resistors, we will breadboard a circuit that creates complex analog sounds. Theoretically speaking, we will wire an R2R (resistor to resistor) ladder to smooth the output of a Walsh function generator, experimenting with the auditory effects that result from altering those connections.

Practically speaking, we are going to breadboard a circuit and poke it with wires to hear what happens. This is a make-and-take workshop. No computer, no soldering, no electronics experience required. Please bring your own earbuds to listen to the output. All other materials will be provided and you can keep what you make.

** This workshop is free and open to the public as part of Moogfest’s The Joyful Noise of STEAM program, and is appropriate for children ages 15 and up. A festival ticket is not required to attend. 

** This workshop is limited in capacity and offered on a first come first served basis. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. 

** Entrance is not guaranteed.
