Pocasynth DIY - Free Download
This is the full set of EAGLE CAD and Gerber Files required to build the Pocasynth, a version of the Atari Punk Console which in turn is based on Forrest Mimms' "Stepped Tone Generator" Circuit.
This ZIP file also includes a PDF for making PCBs using the toner transfer method. This project is designed specifically for people building a PCB for the first time, but also for people etching their own boards for the first time. Wide tracks and generous isolates reduce the chances of short circuits.
In order to construct this kit with no wiring, the builder will need access to: PCB-mounted SPDT (on-off-on) switches, 5mm LDRs, 9mm vertical potentiometers and Thonkiconn Jacks. Of course, other jacks, switches and sensors can be used too.
The Pocasynth was designed by AFA for Synthfarm Edition 5 held in Kolkata and conducted by Varun Desai aka 5volts. The version in the ZIP file is essentially identical to this version except for the placement of one resistor, the power LED, the two switches and the LDRs. The earlier version was a bit too clustered and switching the LDRs would get fiddly.
You are free to use the Gerbers and schematic in any way you want. We encourage modification and passing those mods back to the DIY community. If you can make it even easier to build, I salute you.
