“The Benjolin is a ‘noise box’ that is ‘bent by design’, meaning that it always has a definite amount of unpredictability while it is still intuitive to play. The Benjolin features two eighteen-octave range voltage controlled oscillators that drive a ‘rungler’ circuit, circuitry that in essence uses a special interference technique feeding back into the…

Waldorf 4-pole filter – recapping

Recapping is a process of replacing old capacitors (especially electrolytic) with new ones. Through time, electrolytic capacitors tend to become “dry”, thus loosing their primary properties. Recapping is mostly done on old TVs and radios, as well as vintage analogue synthesizers, studio mixers, effects, etc. I recaped my Waldorf 4-pole filter, which was made in…


Little noise synth that uses three LDRs (light dependant resistor) to change the pitch of three ocsilators. Original post found on Leafcutter John’s site, PCB was made in collaboration with Ida Hiršenfelder. During the process of developing the PCB, the original name Wrongamin was somehow renamed to Weirdamine.

Experimental noise synth, made after instructions on Peter Blaser’s site. It’s a paper circuit design, all components are solderd together point-to-point. You can swap certain “hairy” capacitors with different values for more sonic deviatons. It is played by touching nodes on the circuit. Visit Ciat Lonbarde for more.
