Building a Modular Synthesiser Part 6: Finishing Touches and Putting It to Use

Dave Ives
I currently look after production at AB Open. I have a background in the arts, environmental conservation and IT support. In my spare time I do a bit of DJing and I like making things.

Thanks very much for the tutorial. I'm starting my first rack with the bela pepper. Very curious about the pi integration, I had a similar idea. Also thinking about building a power supply, especially one that runs on 5v 2a usb power (for a 60hp setup) similar to "Rakit Go!" or "Polyend Anywhere".

Hi Dave,
well I followed fine your project.
But I didn't found any circuit diagrams. Where can I download any schematics?
In the 70's I built the "Formant" synth, which was one of the voltage controlled synth, VCO;VCA;VCF and so on.
Best Regards

@geralds Hi - the two best UK resources for PCBs that I have found are Thonk and Pusherman - if you check out the kits that they supply many will include circuit diagrams in the documentation. There are also many Open Source modular synth projects - Mutable Instruments spring to mind - that share schematics etc. An internet search for any of the above should come up with useful resources. Is Formant the one that kind of synthesised the human voice - or am I thinking of something else?
