Dubspot Labs: Learn to Build Your Own Synth

Over the next few months we will be hosting three new events as part of our Dubspot Labs workshop series. This edition of Dubspot Labs will allow you to immerse yourself in a hands-on environment where you will learn to build your very own analog synthesizer. You’ll also learn analog sound design and synthesis concepts along the way. At the end of the workshop, you will get to keep your creation and have a special, unique synthesizer of your own to use in music production and live performance.

The Dubspot Mini-Synth Kit comes with everything you need to build your own miniature synthesizer. Customize your circuit with up to six oscillators. Your completed mini-synth will be controlled by knobs, plus we’ll teach you how to add sensors that react to touch, temperature and light. You will even be able to perform analog bass sounds, leads and sound effects live or record and sample the audio as part of your creative workflow. The mini-synth outputs sound on a standard 1/4″ headphone jack, suitable for recording.

Martin Roth of Section 6, a technical consultancy and audio applications firm, attended our first Dubspot Labs event and had this to say about his experience:

“What I really enjoyed about the class is the fact that everyone got their own synth to work with, and everyone got something that worked and that they could take home. We came away with enough knowledge to build on what we had made in class, and turn it into something much more exciting when we got home. We had the opportunity to work with multiple oscillators, photoresistors, LEDs, amplifiers, speakers, all of the basics to create any kind of sound-making machine. I’d recommend the class to anyone interested in learning more about building analogue synthesizers or circuit-bending the ones that they already have.”
