Maker Camp Week 5–RECAP

Maker Guild had it’s own noise night this week for Maker Camp featuring: a KORG Volca analog drum machine and sequencer, littleBits Synth Kit, and DIY mystery boxes that play a tune when opened. There was noise!  And soldering and tinkering!  Best of all worlds, right?

Using the KORG DS-10 synthesizer for the Nintendo DS

KORG it up!  David T. shared some awesome KORG analog emulators and a way to emulate a KORG synthesizer on your Nintendo DS.

littleBits1littleBits components were a hit.  We combined the Synth Kit with a basic kit to make a lot of noise.

We deconstructed musical greeting cards, carefully removing the speaker and sound card/battery, and then soldered it up to a switch that fit in the tin.  You now have a sort of detection device that lets you know whenever anyone peeks in your tin!
