DIY & Synth Meetup vs. Open Thursdays

DIY & Synth Meetup is a community event for interested people in and beyond Leipzig. Highly interesting workshops all about synthesizers, synth DIY and 3D audio. For our first issue of of the event series we were able to win very interesting cooperation partners.

The workshops start at 10:30am and require a pre-sale ticket. Join the Open Soundlab and ZiMMT’s 3D audio system for a workshop and jam session without a ticket and free of charge from 5pm, or just have drinks at the bar, meet and share ideas.

The general admission price for the workshop part of the day is 20€. For some workshops you will have to pay additional material costs later, depending on the workshop and chosen DIY kits, preferably by PayPal during the event.

Start: 11am
Available Places: 8
Additional material costs: 65€

In this beginner-friendly workshop, you’ll not only build a fully-functioning Kick Drum module on a breadboard – you’ll also gain an in-depth understanding of how it works. For that, Moritz Klein will guide you through the basics of analog circuit design, providing you with practical skills that you can apply to your own DIY projects.

You’ll get a full mki x es.edu DIY Kick kit by Erica Synths, along with a breadboard, batteries, and jumper cables, so you can continue experimenting at home. And once you’re ready, you can even assemble the Kick into a proper Eurorack module using the included PCB and panel.

With the Sound Lab, ZiMMT opens its doors every second Thursday from 5 to 9pm from March to November 2023 to share its technical capabilities and knowledge. No previous technical knowledge and no equipment of your own are necessary for participation – an interest in working with sound in space or experimenting with sound is enough! You are welcome to bring specific questions about Max, Reaper, Ambisonics, IEM plugins, surround sound mixing etc. or projects, but it is not necessary. But you can also start trying things out on the spot.
