You’ll leave this two part workshop with a working Benjoling modular synth. The Benjolin is an instrument designed by Rob Hordijk from the Netherlands in 2009 and has been workshopped all over Europe.

This is a somewhat challenging build, which is why we schedule it over two sessions (it’s possible to finish in one with some perserverance). It is all through-hole parts and once you’ve soldered all hundred-odd parts you’ll be practically a pro. Everyone is guaranteed to leave with a working synth.

This module fits in the Eurorack grid, or you can power it with 2 9V batteries. It is comparable to some commercial versions such as the Epoch Modular BenjolinThere’s also a software version in Pure Data for your enjoyment.

Note: that the cost of this workshop includes a $60 materials fee and $60 workshop fee. All materials (and 2 batteries) included.
