The 1st run of kits were very popular so I've got the parts together for another small run of 5 kits. 3/5

This kit provides you with the components and instructions that you need to build a small handheld looper. All you need to do is build the kit and find an enclosure to fit it into.

Before I go into the details here is a short youtube video showing the Crazy Looper in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrHkvvtrXhA

This is a great synth kit for those getting started in electronics, but some basic knowledge of electronics and soldering is required.

The kit includes:
*Crazy Looper custom Circuit board
*Programmed micro controller
*Electronic components( resistors, capacitors, voltage regulator, 9v battery clip, switch, potentiometers, LDR, 3.5mm socket, knobs and LEDs
*detailed instructions

You will need:
*Soldering iron and solder
*Wire cutters
*Allen key to fit the knobs
*An enclosure to fit the kit into if you want one.
*Basic soldering skills.

if you want to make your own PCB, can program your own Picaxe and find the parts I have made an Instructable of the project so that you can put the kit together your self. http://www.instructables.com/id/Crazy-Looper/

About the Crazy Looper:
The Crazy Looper is a small handmade device that allows you to create real-time noise loops with a fast modulation metallic effect.

The Crazy Looper builds up sound loops using three controls,tempo, sound and write. The sound control adjusts the frequency of the tone in the second half of the dial and the level of noise in the first half of the dial, giving two distinct sounds. The first half of the sounds have some spots that are blank to cut the sound up as you move the control up and down. The second control is Tempo, which controls how fast the loop is played. Write the loop at a slow tempo then speed it up for a great effect. The third control is the write LDR, when you put your finger over the light sensor it writes a sound to memory, which is then replayed next time the loop cycle starts. With the sound control knob adjusted clockwise, you can add a rest to the loop by pressing the Write button.

The output is via a 3.5mm stereo socket which can be plugged into earphones, a computer sound card, mixer or amplifier.

* The Crazy Looper is powered by a Common 9v Battery which is not included due to shipping restrictions.

I hope that gives you a basic idea about how the Crazy Looper kit works, if you have any questions about the kit or the skills required to build it please feel free to convo me.

Happy noise making,

Crazy Looper Synth Kit
