The stickers and PCB are almost ready! Just need to order one last test of each and it’ll be off to assembly.
The last revision of the board works and sounds great but the controls need to be moved around slightly so we need to do one more prototype.
The stickers have been a surprising amount of trouble but after 6 proofs we’ve finally got the colors we’ve been after.
By the end of the month we’ll have the final images online so you can pick your color combos!
This shouldn’t put us too far behind the original schedule as most of the work is machining enclosures in house and that can begin next week.
The next Bleep Labs summer workshop is this Sunday, July 13th 7 PM at Switched On.
The workshop series is based on combining simple analog and digital circuits to form new creations. Rather than soldering the components together, the Rad-Fi is breadboard-based, allowing it to be easy for a beginner to make noise and for an expert to modify.
The Rad-Fi + is a lo-fi, Arduino-based digital delay that is great at making textural feedback drones and loops as well as short, flangy resonances. It can take input from the light controlled analog oscillators included in the workshop or any external audio source.
Modulation of the sample rate and freeze with the analog oscillators is also possible as seen in the video.
This series is for all ages and experience levels. All workshops are stand alone.
Workshop price includes all materials so you’ll be taking home your own breadboard synth!
There’s a new Bleep Labs / Handmade Music Austin workshop! The Rad-Fi System 001.
Build it at NMASS Saturday, June 14th at 1:30. Dr. Bleep will be performing with it and other Bleep Labs devices, modular synth, and glitched video that evening.
The workshop is $30, all materials included. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat. No NMASS ticket is required but it is encouraged as there’s a lot of great performances happening thursday to saturday!
This solder-free, breadboard kit is based around 3 analog, light-controlled oscillators that interact with each other. They then pass through a lo-fi, Arduino-based digital delay.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to NMASS, we’ll be offering this kit and more online soon…..
