The North Coast Modular Collective “Mt. Brighton Avalanche Oscillator” is a community developed and open-source kit, designed specifically for learning. Its low part count, low complexity, and low cost is coupled with a transparency in design and function that makes it easier to understand and describe what is happening with the electricity and sound. When complete, you’ll have a simple, standalone battery operated synthesizer with a single knob for changing the pitch of the sound that you can plug headphones into, or other music gear. The kit comes with all the parts you’ll need to build it. You’ll have to supply the tools and solder to assemble it.
