This Atari Punk Console kit is based on the original Stepped Tone Generator by Forest M. Mimms III. It creates great lo-fi sounds resembling those from the old style Atari games using an astable square wave oscillator.
The main features of the kit are a 9v battery connector snap, an on/off power switch, a 3.5mm jack so that it can be hooked up to other devices such as an amp, speaker or headphones, and two knobs to control the pitch and depth of the quirky raspy tones produced.
To further customise the Atari Punk Console there are pads for soldering in your own speaker. There is also an extension strip with CV inputs for connecting the APC to other devices such as our Baby 8 Step Sequencer.

This kit is rated as easy, takes around 20-45 mins to make and is suitable for all ages. For safety it is recommended that all children are supervised during assembly!

Each kit contains clearly labelled parts for ease of use. An assembly guide with enlarged diagrams and photos with clear instructions is available to view and download on our website. If you'd prefer to receive this by email or have trouble downloading the instructions please send us a message!

A range of optional extras are available to purchase with this kit including 500mm leaded solder, a small speaker, and a connector kit (consisting of two strips of pin header sockets plus jumper wires) for connecting the APC to devices such as our Baby 8 Sequencer kit. Please use the drop down menus above to add these to your kit.
