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 will provide you with all the components and tools necessary to build this legendary gizmo, and we will guide you through the build and help you understand how electronic circuits work. Our Atari Punk Console kit is designed by Rob Cruickshank. It is a really high-quality kit, and easy to assemble. If you are new to electronics, it’s a great way to get your feet wet, and make some noise!

More on the APC here, and more from Forrest M. Mims III, who released the circuit in 1980 here.
