GetLoFi has all the links and resources you’ll need for making your own “Atari Punk Console” sound device, Circuitmaster writes – “The so called “Atari Punk Console” device is a great start for builders interested in working with components and circuitry to produce Bleepy-Bloopy-Gitchy goodness. Using a 556 dual timer IC and a handful of other components one can be built quickly. The basis for this noise maker was a schematic originally published by Forest Mims III, which now can be found around the web and posted above for easy reference. The APC can be built into any case of your desire, and in the case of The SquareWave Parade even a vintage Atari joystick.”Link.

    I ordered the parts to make this two days ago from mouser, hopefully they arrive today so I can get to building.

    It’s about $12 in parts to make one, pretty cheap.

    It’s a great lil experimentation project and I’m working on finding lots of different mods, just start poking around you’re bound to find cool stuff by trial and error.
