Future of Synthesizers - DIY and App Workshop

The "Future of Synthesizers" workshop is from beginner to pro - feel free to try, show, mix and jam as you see fit. The more tools, the more fun. We start with a show and tell, introducing different concepts, from open source synths to iPad apps, from DIY to wearable synths. Lots of nice toys to play and experiment with. This Workshop is also a kickoff event for a series of workshops to build your very own open source synth (modular or single-tool).

Bring your own tools, drinks and friends. The workshops ends in a open jam session.

For Fête de la musique on June 21, Open Design City will present music and synth related workshops all day. This first event now is our first research in the area of all things "sound", possibly leading up to the development of our own apps and devices that will be presented and built at the fête.

Example apps (iPad):

  • ims-20
  • Korg Electribe App
  • SoundPrism
  • RJ Voyager
  • ElectroBeats
  • Funkbox
  • TouchOSC, Control

DIY Synths:

  • Audino
  • MeeBlip
  • Shruthi-1
  • Drawdio (and other simple 555 noisemakers)

The workshop is offered by ODC members Olivio and Philip.

    Hope this was a success! Would love to hear how it went, or if you did any documentation!

    Hey Peter,
    wow, how did you find this? :)

    It was a very first meeting and we will have consecutive dates to get in more people. So far only show and tell and lots of buttons (and screens) pressed simultaneously. Possibly should do another Handmade Music as soon as we have enough people interested. :)
