Square Sounds Music Festival DIY Sound Chip MIDI Module

I am presenting a workshop at Square Sounds!!

Date: 16/2/2013

Veune: Fitzroy Library
128 Moor Street, Fitzroy (Town Hall)

Presented by: little-scale
Session Running Time: Approximately 2 hours
Time: 12:30 - 14:30

Get ready for funtimes! Join Dr. little-scale as he presents a hands-on workshop - on how to build and use your very own USB MIDI sound chip module! This session will be based around the (in)famous AY38910 sound chip, as heard on countless chiptune tracks, arcade machines and obsolete video game consoles. The sound module itself is USB powered and is recognised as a MIDI device, so participants can use the module straight away. All parts are included, and although soldering is required, there's no need to stress because it's all very easy. The workshop will feature both constructing the sound module and a basic demo covering how to use the sound module.

You will need to bring Laptop with audio line input OR Laptop with external sound card. We will have soldering irons available, but if you are local and you have one, it would be great if you could bring it along so that we don't need to share.

This workshop is $50 to cover the cost of the parts involved book your place at
