I did this one using a layout by one of the guys over at DIYStompboxes.com... The etched graphics didn't come out perfect...better luck next time.. Its pretty much a straight up APC... I like it Smile

Looks great to me! Cool
The best way to get into DIY electronics is by starting with something small and simple like this. If you take on something too big, and it doesn't work out, it can easily dampen your enthusiasm. That's what I used to do, back in the 80s, when there was no internet forum to go looking for answers on.
Why it was soooo baadd! I ad to meaake sythesiser frompt shoebox!!! Laughing

Nice, like the etching. I made one for a friend and just finished working out the bugs on mine. I put a switchable ldr for one of the pots. Its a nice simple little circuit so I figured it was time to mess with a little mod or two. If you make another you should try to mess with it a bit, nice job again!!

i love the labels on the potentiometers : beep & blip

the etching is also nice. could you maybe white a "how to" ? I´m sure that many of us would like how to do etch fronpanels.

and nice to see it on the wonderful matrixsynth blog

anyone who wants to build one of these APC's from the same layout should use Choklitlove's pcb layout... its simple and is verified to work.

That over etched one looks very interesting. I can envision some really amazing looking boxes using that process. Ahh, those fortunate accidents...

I think the overetched look would look cool with an HR Giger piece...MC escher stuff would be cool too...but very intricate

Man, It;s a pretty nifty lil circuit. I plan a nice "steampunk" version soon. i will add optical pitch/ pots w switches option. I also will do a varible cap version based on the pdf below.I had bad luck with the vero board 566 version, so i opted for the robthefiddler version with the two 555 ic deal.
I gotta scrounge up some 470k or 500k linear pots! I got every value BUT those!

I will post it here and on my flickr site.
Once again, thanks to all the inspiration from the posters here! Mike
