And i was wondering how you would go about building one yourself?I have no idea about diy stuff like this but it would be cool to give it a try,i imagine theres pickups under the board but how do you add the effects like the reverbs and the delays?
This things sweet. The springs on top act like a normal spring in a spring reverb unit. You could use Piezoelectric elements if you wanted to be cheap or salvage some guitar pickups. As for the effects that can be done in post before the signal is sent out of the unit. I want to make one now.


Right now I'm working on building a guitar 100% from scratch including the pickup. I just ordered 2 miles worth of 42 gauge magnet wire and it fits in the palm of my hand. I've got the stuff here for a sample rate reducer (kind of an analog bitcrusher) that I want to make as well. But that thing is for sure on my 'to build' list


oh an a really easy mod. Hook a potentiometer up between the V+ of a device. Its a variable resistor and as you reduce the electricity going into the unit you get some really cool sounds. Be mindful of voltages and AMPS (Amps kill, voltage not so much)

Re: Official DIY Thread: Noise Machines

Question time!
I need to amplify a signal (about 1,2 V) but make sure the output will be below 12V, can I make a circuit with an op-amp followed by a potentiometer?
How do I know how much power I need for the op-amp?

I did this to a Behringer pedal. That's pretty useful, aside from making helluva noiz!

You can do that. Signal goes to one outside leg of pot, ground goes to other outside leg, output is taken from the middle leg.

Op-amp datasheets will tell you what their power requirements are. An op-amp can't supply greater voltage than its power supply, though, so if you power it with 12V or less you're safe.

This is my current project...just put the old bleep labs noise synth kit inside an old tomy chatbot robot. He's nearly done, but it isn't working when closed atm. Will sort it out in a couple of weeks.

Re: Official DIY Thread: Noise Machines

Question about amplifiers, if I need to boost the signal as much as possible (I have a 1.5 in, I need around 8 to 9) do I need the resistors in the circuit below?

Ya, best to avoid open-loop. The gain-setting resistors help to keep operation linear.

I was writing "Sexy Tupperware Hack", then I red your message.

So I have to capitalize it: "SEXY TUPPERWARE HACK is sexy".

Re: Official DIY Thread: Noise Machines

My furby has a boring personality. All it wants to do is wake up, say something, and go to sleep.

I'm thinking of commandeering my brother's Furby in hopes of some other sounds.

Re: Official DIY Thread: Noise Machines

You guys are far more advanced than me, but I'm a huge fan of noise and have always wanted to learn circuit bending and shit like that instead of just using my synth rig to create the tones. I want to make it more monstrous!!

Needless to say, bookmarked.
