Digital Music Synthesis for Total Beginners with ArduTouch music synthesizer kit / Learn to Solder
Self-organized Session

Learn to solder by making a way-cool, powerful music synthesizer, and learn how to make cool music, sound, and noise! with computer chips (The fancy word for making sound with a computer chip is Digital Signal Processing).

ArduTouch is an open hardware Arduino-compatible music synthesizer kit with a built-in Touch Keyboard, and with built-in speaker/amplifier. It is a really nice performing musical instrument.

This workshop is for total newbies to learn to solder.
This workshop is for total newbies to make their own ArduTouch music synthesizer and learn to make music, sound (and noise!) with computer chips. Attendees take their completed synthesizer home at the end of the workshop.

The ArduTouch comes pre-programmed with a way cool synthesizer. And I will show you how to re-program it with other way cool (and totally different) synthesizers.

For ages 10 - 100.
