24. 07. 2024 


What is the Noise Kitchen DIY workshop?
A course in soldering and building modular and desktop synthesizers. A workshop for everyone, regardless of experience or age. Participants have the opportunity to gain valuable advice on where to start with modular synths, learn about the role of modular and desktop synths in electronic music, gain insight into the technical aspect of synths and learn about the differences between different types of eurorack modules.
You come in, select a synth you would like to build and we will give you all of the parts, tools and advice you need.

Who is the workshop for?
For synth, music and DIY enthusiasts.
It is intended for beginners but also for experienced solderers.

What equipment do I need to bring?
Good mood. We will lend you all the equipment - soldering stations and all other equipment on site.

What do I need to know?
We'll teach you everything. Even if you've never soldered in your life, you'll walk away with the first synth you ever built. But beware, it's addictive.
See the catalog (at the end of this text) for information on the difficulty of building different instruments.
We'll help you with anything on the spot - even which synth to build.

What is a synth?
An electronic musical instrument.

What is a desktop synthesizer?
A self-contained musical instrument for which you don't need anything other than headphones. Most also run on batteries, so you can play with your music anywhere, anytime.

What is eurorack?
A musical instrument, which you can build and connect depending on exactly what functions (modules) you need. For example, you can build a VCO - sound generator, VCF - sound filter and more. These modules are connected to each other by patch cables. So that you can use the modules.

Come build your first or 100th synth.
