BASTL Instruments | OMSynth miniLab
|DIY product by Pete Edwards a.k.a. Casperelectronics called the OMSynth MiniLab. The OMSynth miniLab is a circuit development and performance interface designed to help inventors quickly build and experiment with creative circuits. It was designed with beginners in mind but is perfectly suited for seasoned builders and complex circuit development.
The OMSynth offers all you need to start inventing circuits to make sound and light. Potentiometers, audio mixer, speaker headphone output, battery or adapter power and more. The OMSynth comes with tutorial videos for making analog oscillators, sequencers and a lo-fi digital sampler.

It comes with OMSYNTH OSCILLATOR PARTS KIT for free!
+ Battery (included) or 9V wall wart power options (not included)
+ Regulated 5V and unregulated power sockets
+ over-current protection fuse (200ma) protects circuit from shorts or improperly installed ICs
+ 3 channel audio mixer with individually weighted inputs (x1, x1 and x10)
+ Amplified speaker with volume control
+ Dual mono headphone output
+ 2 stereo I/O jacks for connecting to external circuits, modular synths, etc
+ Tri-color LED with discrete channel drivers
+ Light sensor for light based variation of circuit parameters
+ The light sensor is installed facing the LED making it a basic vactrol (voltage to resistance converter)
+ 3 touch sensors (the OMS logo) for touch based manipulation of circuit parameters
+ 5 modular 100k potentiometers (protected by 1k buffer)
+ 1 modular pushbutton and integrated on/off switch
+ 2 full size breadboards
+ Laser engraved base plate with a carrying handle
+ Expansion section for adding control boards or custom circuits

SATELLITE HARDWARE BOARDS:
In addition to the on-board features listed above there are also a range of hardware boards available for installing addition control hardware to your circuit.
+ potentiometers (available in a range of values).
+ slide switches
At the bottom of the OMSynth miniLab is an expansion section intended for the inclusion of control hardware boards but can also be used by users to hold custom boards.
+ 9 point touch contact board
+ 8 channel sequencer pot board
+ Ribbon controller
A NOTE ABOUT BREADBOARDS:
The breadboard is a standard interface used for quickly building electrical circuits. This is a universal format which will accept nearly all electrical components. Most hardware (pots, buttons, switches, ect) will also fit in the breadboard but are extremely unstable and clumsy to use. Therefore the satellite boards should be used to allow secure installation.
|Legend:||Obvious||Y: Yes, N: No, N/A: Not Applicable|
|VCO||Voltage Controlled Oscillator||DCO||Digital Controlled Oscillator|
|LFO||Low Frequency Oscillator||Sub||Sub Oscillator|
|VCF||Voltage Controlled Filter||VCA||Voltage Controlled Amplifier|
|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.|
|Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.|
