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:
The makeAsynth kit is all about having fun and learning how synthesizers works. The kit is for kids from 3* years up to 80+ years old. (* contains small parts not suited for younger children.)
It’s also for any age wanting to learn how synthesizers work and electronic sounds are made. The kit project page makeAsynth.com contains easy to follow instructions for building synthesizers. The basic starter kit contains the breadboard and the parts to get you started.
