Berlin Wall Distortion pedal is operational, I’m happy – But still hungry and I’m already planning for a new audio effect project (possibly a cold war / Finnlandisierung related filter / amplifier unit). Before I start with a new device I’ll wrap this project properly. Made corrections to the Berlin map/schematic and moved it to OpenStreet map. I’ll remake the circuit board toner exposure / transfer images next week and possibly shoot a video explaining how it works (I’ll use archive.org videos as illustration). I’m thinking about making a cover of Dancing on the Berlin Wall (1982) by Rational Youth.

Homemade Modular Synthesiser explained by nervoussquirrel (the previously noted Geiger counter module also included). The system is dedicated to Ray Wilson.


Ray Wilson the developer of the Weird Sound Generator etc. passed away a few months ago. His last youtube entry is touching and soothing (I can hear he made something with his life). I’ve collected new parts for my WSG unit and I’ll return to the build during the holidays. Apparently there are plans to adapt Wilson’s schematics to the eurorack format! Also the Mfos site has continued to offer pcb boards and kits.
