This Atari Punk Console kit is based on the original Stepped Tone Generator by Forest M. Mimms III. It creates great lo-fi sounds resembling those from the old style Atari games using an astable square wave oscillator. The main features of the kit are a 9v battery snap, an on/off power switch, a 3.5mm jack so that it can be hooked up to other devices such as an amp, speaker or headphones, and two knobs to control the pitch and depth of the quirky raspy tones produced.
This kit is pretty easy and can be used as an introduction to soldering. It should take around 20-45 mins to make and is suitable for all ages. The only equipment needed to complete this kit is a soldering iron (and solder) and a pair of flush cutters.
The easy to follow assembly guide can be followed online or downloaded. The guide contains handy hints and tips to help you along the way!
Grab yourself a 9v pp3 battery (not included) and connect it up to the battery snap. Turn the mini APC on using the on/off power switch, and adjust the two knobs to control the pitch and depth of the quirky raspy tones produced.
