TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE
A workshop at Thonk in Brighton where you build this seven-band Eurorack Graphic EQ with the Music Thing designer Tom Whitwell.
This is a perfect beginners introduction to DIY! It’s a simple kit where all the harder stuff is already soldered for you. You can pick either the aluminium or black panels on the day when you take the completed module home.
Tom will introduce the concept and functionality of the module and help you build your own, then lead the group through different practical examples of how to use it in the modular, in both obvious and unexpected ways.
The workshop is at Thonk HQ in Brighton on September 15th 2018, starting at 13:00 (1pm) and running for approximately 3-4 hours. Thonk is an inclusive and gender positive environment. The workspace is wheelchair accessible with accessible toilets. If you have any special needs or access requirements of any kind please do let us know in advance and we will try our best to accomodate you. We welcome anyone over the age of 11 to attend, anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please bring I.D. if you are under 18 and unaccompanied.
The Thonk office is only an 8 minute walk from Brighton train station, we’ll send you more details once your order is placed. We provide everything you need, kits, tools and tuition.
Free hot drinks provided. Please bring a mobile phone! If you arrive late the only way to gain access is call us. More details after you order.
SUPER SIMPLE BUILD – ALL SMD PARTS ALREADY SOLDERED IN – ONLY 7 SLIDERS AND TWO JACKS TO SOLDER!
A compact and high quality seven band graphic equaliser for Eurorack. Inspired by the Boss GE-7 pedal, but with pristine low-noise circuitry and a much broader frequency range. Push the faders up and to the left to boost, down and to the right to cut. Works great in feedback loops or as a tone control for individual voices.
This module uses NE5532 op-amps, and is based on a design in Douglas Self’s masterful ‘Small Signal Audio Design’. The 5532 isn’t some boutique audiophile chip – but it’s clean and works really well in this context. The 5 x NE5532s in this module draw 7.8ma each, a total of 39ma from the chips, generating a little bit of warmth – you might be able to feel it on the panel. With 7 x LEDs, total current draw is around 77ma. If you’re worried about power consumption, you can pull the LEDs out of their sockets in the sliders and replace them as you like, or remove the LEDs altogether.
Please note that the event will be filmed.
