So You Want To Make A Synth On A Budget? Here's The $29 MakeAsynth Kit

DSP Synths wants you to understand the ins and outs of making your own basic synthesizer. Why not Combine the makeAsynth kit with our online synthesis courses too!  

When buying a hardware synthesizer feels all too easy and passé, the next best thing is to make one yourself. It doesn't have to be an intimidating or expensive experience though. At least now thanks to the new makeAsynth kit from DSP Synthesizers you can get a bundle of essential components, breadboard, etc for $29. And while you can easily source these for yourself, the makeAsynth kit comes complete with "easy to follow instructions".

Here's what Jan from DSP Synths tells ua about the new makeAsynth kit:

Please do not promote this guy (Jan Ostman) and his fake internet electronic shops (at least three exist). I have ordered some stuff from him a year ago and never received it, finally I had to report it as a fraud and fake internet shop. Received my money back, but from PayPal fraud service.
