Synthesizer

Description

I just got done building this bastard. The wooden case took 4 months to build. The metal front panel took 7 months to design. I went through about 20 - 30 different configurations and styles until I found one that would be useful in the long run as I add more things to it. The panel design was made with adobe illustrator, and printed out on seperate sheets. The sheets were photographed and gigantic negatives were produced. The negatives were used to burn the image into a silk screen. The emulsion was carefully washed out and I squeegeed the white ink onto the actual panel. This took 3 weeks. The electronics were a kit from PAiA, called the "Fatman" synthesizer. Building it took 3 months. I did it slowly so that I'd do it right. And that's about it. Now I will begin to add modifications. This synthesizer sounds wonderful.

2 Oscillators
12 db filter with ASR envelope
Voltage Controlled Amplifier with ADSR Envelope
MIDI control
18 knobs so far.
3 Blink lights

Simple but sweet. I will make it more complicated because I love complexity.
