Solder your own Rings Module with Minimal Blood Sweat and Tears!
This event will take place on Sunday, July 7 2019 and will begin at 12:00 PM and run until 6PM or until everyone is done.
Rings brings physical modelling synthesis to your Eurorack system, from a more modular angle than Braids models or Elements. Instead of trying to be a complete instrument, Rings focuses on the key ingredient, the resonator, ready to be excited by envelope clicks, trigger pulses, granular noise or any other audio source produced by the rest of your system. Three families of vibrating structures are simulated by the module, with CV control over their parameters: -Strings, membranes and tubes as modelled by Elements' resonator section (modal synthesis). -Strings coupled together and vibrating in sympathy, with controllable intervals between them. -Strings with a variable amount of inharmonicity.
For $150 you will receive all the components required to build a Rings 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 sixth 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 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!
