Keyboard synth from salvage

Keyboard synth from salvage


The Astra synthesizer from Not Breathing – 2 VCOs, 2 LFOs, VCF, noise source, ring modulator all built from salvaged parts

the keyboard is from a gutted lowrey wandering genie keyboard. i recycled most of the capacitors in the unit from the genie and a dead tr606


i didn’t buy anything for this unit. i used some pretty crappy pots – but used good ones where it counts –
even the wire was from an old medical device

this is my depression era thrifter

All that plus some “dumpster wood” panelling makes for a fine lookin’ thrifter. Oh and yup, it sounds good too. – Not Breathing STRIKES AGAIN

    hi it looks great! though, is it possible if you were to put a schematic up or a tutorial on how to build it I would, and i’m sure many others would be extremely grateful if you did that
