Just a quick post to show a recent build I did of the Thingamagoop 2 RGB kit from Bleep Labs. This device is a fabulous little noisemaker utilizing analog signals controlled by an Arduino ATMEGA chip, photocell, and various front panel controls.

The kit came with everything needed other than the basic tools to put it together. You can see the list of parts, schematic, and other info at the product page. It was a moderately challenging build, as it involves two PCB’s, a fair amount of parts, and plenty of soldering/wiring. A great project if you want to step up your game in the field of electronics assembly.

Along with the 8Ω internal speaker, it has a 1/4″ mono audio jack for direct out and another 1/8″ C/V output to play other analog synths or modular setups using it as a controller. The C/V output is not the standard Eurorack 1 Volt/Octave but it really serves better for experimental improvising with sound rather than musical performance anyhow.

Speaking of modular synthesis, I recently approached Make Noise founder Tony Rolando with my TG2 and he even let me patch it in to his modular setup, which was really cool to try!
