Drone Lab V2

As a newbie to synthesizers and most electronics, I found the Drone Lab V2 a rewarding kit to construct. This analog drone synthesizer is made up of four oscillators, each with tuning and volume control, that get mixed together and run through various effects. You can also run another synth, noisemaker, guitar, or whatever straight into it for all kinds of cool sonic interplay. The assembly is all soldered onto one PCB, eliminating the need for wiring and mounting, and although the construction and layout is solid, it does feel very DIY. So, how does it sound? In a word: awesome. The tuning controls allow you to dial in your drones by ear, but it’s the effects that really make it playable on its own.
