Day 1 – Build a Guitar Distortion Pedal
Saturday, October 24th, 10am to 4pm
Cost $80 (all materials included)
Or book online now!
Craft yourself a hand made distortion pedal and learn about audio and musical instrument electronics as well as 3d printing. This workshop led by sound artist Nicolas Woollaston is a great opportunity for a guitarist to achieve a unique tone that they can fine tune exactly as they wish. In this workshop we will be starting with a design based loosely on the classic Ibanez Tube Screamer, modifying it with true bypass and an extra knob to increase the range to include some more extreme settings. The design of the circuit will be explained and you will be assisted to custom modify it if you wish.
Day 2 -Introduction to Arduino and Making Music with Microcontrollers
Sunday October 25th, 10am to 4pm
Optional extension session Monday 26th, 10am-2pm
Cost $80 (all materials included).
Build your very own electronic music gadget and learn about Arduino, a user friendly and affordable microntroller. This workshop led by sound artist Nicolas Woollaston will take you through the soldering and the programming to get you producing cool sounds from your Arduino and also how to connect it to MIDI keyboards, computer sequencers and other MIDI devices. On the second (optional) day we will explore further techniques you can use to get even crazier sounds out of your Arduino.
