Atari Punk Console kit by Rakit. Beginners DIY Electronic Project, Circuit Bent Synthesizer, Noisemaker
Materials: PCB, Capacitors, Resistor, Potentiometer, Knobs
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 the speaker included. There is also an extension strip with CV inputs for connecting the APC to other devices such as our Baby 8 Step Sequencer.
The kit includes lead free solder 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.
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. A detailed assembly guide with enlarged diagrams and photos with clear instructions is available to view and download on the Rakit website rakits.co.uk. We are unable to provide individual customer support with kit building so please see the assembly guide to gauge difficulty before purchasing. Once started, kits cannot be refunded.

Great service, fast shipping. This Kit is super fun and easy, the APC sounds incredible!
Arrived in great time. Had a bunch of extras in the box (I like this a lot!). Haven't had time to sit down and populate the board yet. Looking forward to it
