new creation: The Bitch Box

Post by xdugef » Sat Jun 23, 2007 8:49 pm

Nothing too complicated here just a bunch of switchs in a box.

Two feedback loops with feedback control and bypass.
Two 1 to 6 rotary switches with mutes

I'll probably add some momentary mutes and a few other options

practice soldering.. one of the most difficult things about assembling these types of devices is just drilling the holes in the aliminum project box. Outside of that none of this is too difficult.

I built a variation which has 4 feedback loops and a rotary switch to switch between the four loops.

I also built a little 555 pulse generator which can used for tones or as a test audio generator is fairly small too.

I found a 556 dual 555 timer and foudn a schematic for the Atari Punk Console noise maker. I made a few small changes and came up with what I'm calling the Atari Gunk Generator.

what mods for the atari punk? just switchable caps/resistors?

hehe, you should put some switchable clipping diodes at the output :D

I forget specifically.. it has an extra knob and switch and a blinking like for fucks' sake..

Really want to make some more shit.. don't have much time though.. gonna move my small parts organizers to a place where they will hopefully be easier to get to which is behind my office door.. floor to ceiling small parts drawers.. maybe do an inventory of IC's too.

I found that photoresistors are really great for the APC; at least folks at the Indy Noisefest seemed to be impressed. (yeah, like all four of the audience members, and Laura too!) And since it was round Halloween when I built the last one, was able to pick up a cheap little adjustable LED strobe light from walmart for like $5, lots of fun with that.

I'm guessing that if you had a blinking light on your APC, it had something to do with perhaps a 555 and a vactrol to pulsate either the volume or the pitch(es), and the knob was for osc speed?
