The venerable ISD1820 voice recorder chip has found its way into the heart of many DIY synth projects and is favoured for its crackly, noisy and sound-warping ability. In this workshop you will build a Lo-Fi audio sampler that can be controlled with touch, sound and light. Workshop attendees will learn about electronic circuits by assembling their lo-fi audio sampler and unlocking the creative potential within the ISD1820.
No previous electronics experience is required, and all materials are provided.
Workshop is limited to 10 participants.
