diy braids, euro 16hp
courtesy of the circuit designer, certain synth module designs are now available via creative commons licensing
we are delighted to be able to offer these for the diy community
PCBs are finished in blue material, with immersion gold finish
full kits include everything you need. the processor IC comes pre-flashed-- solder and go.
synthCube has produced a smoked gray acrylic window for the panel to help protect the OLED, available separately
Important: The full kit is offered ‘on-demand.’ When we receive your order for the kit, we will prepare and QC your full kit before shipping. Depending upon demand and availability- the kit could ship as early as a day or two, or in some cases could take up to two weeks to ship.
panels are designed and produced by grayscale.
Braids is a voltage-controlled monophonic digital sound source.
Sound source… like an oscillator? Not really.
Most of the timbres it generates are so complex that approaching them with a classic analog modular setup would require a full case of oscillators, filters, VCAs, waveshapers and ring-modulators – that’s why we call it a macro-oscillator – intricate digital synthesis algorithms wrapped in oscillator’s clothes.
Each algorithm is controlled by two continuously variable parameters, Timbre and Color, both of them voltage controllable. Very often, these parameters simultaneously affect several dimensions of timbre, creating very complex movements which would be hard to generate with a traditional setup.
