I CAN HEAR YOU… Ears is Mutable Instruments’ take on Tom Whitwell’s open-source Mikrophonie module – a contact microphone and amplifier. A large palette of organic, physical sounds can be generated by scratching, tapping, and more generally collecting any kind of acoustic waves surrounding your modular case – even speaker feedback. With its built-in envelope follower and gate detector, it can also be the gateway between external audio sources and your modular system.  This event will run from 12PM until 6PM or until everyone is finished.For $70 you will receive all the components required to build an Ears eurorack module, all tools, and guidance from experienced builders and manufacturers to ensure success. At the end of the workshop, you will take home your very own module!  This is a surface mount build, comparable in difficulty to previous CCTV workshops (i.e. Tides). We will be placing components onto solder pasted PCBs applied with a stencil. Your PCB will then be baked in an SMT oven. A steady hand and patience will ensure success! This is the eighth workshop at CCTV, and we're confident that 6 people is the optimal number for workshops. With a small group, each attendee can get focused help from the organizers. If you don't make it into this round, we can re run this workshop in the future. If you don't have enough time to finish your build, you can come to the next workshop to finish up, or just drop into CCTV during regular business hours! MAKE SURE TO SELECT 'STORE PICKUP' WHEN CHECKING OUT!
