MakerFest - APC Workshop Sunday 10am - 11:30am

Atari Punk Console

Make your own DIY sound synthesizer! Learn about the 555 chip, practice your soldering and circuit building skills, and make some old school sounds with the Atari Punk Console!

The APC is a simple noisemaker circuit that is famous for its simplicity, elegance, and endless permutations. We’ll provide you with all the components and tools necessary to build this legendary gizmo, and we’ll guide you through the build and help you understand how electronic circuits work. 

Our Atari Punk Console kit is designed by Rob Cruickshank. It's a really high-quality kit, and it's easy to assemble. If you’re new to electronics, it’s a great way to get your feet wet! And make some noise!
