Build a Benjolin!
Hosted by synthCube
Saturday, Sept 9
Workshop is broken into 2-hour Sessions: 10am-12pm, 1pm-3pm
The benjolin is a multifunction synthesizer designed by Rob Hordijk. The module consists of four separate function blocks: two VCOs, a state variable filter and an additional circuit, invented by Hordijk himself, called a rungler. This particular arrangement emerged from his efforts to design a synthesizer that was, as he puts it, "bent by design". As such, the module functions according to principles of chaos theory, where short to long sputtering patterns spontaneously transform themselves, at times, gradually, at others, quite suddenly, morphing into new pattern doublings and bifurcations.
Pete Hartman of Frogleg Synthesis will guide you through the process of assembling the kit. This is a great entry into synthesizer DIY. This is a larger build, so some soldering experience necessary but not required!
TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS WORKSHOP
You will need to purchase the $150 Benjolin Knobcon kit from synthCube HERE.
Some kits may be available for purchase on-site, however, you can secure your place in the workshop by pre-ordering your kit.
