Description

Originally designed by DIY electronics guru Forrest Mims III as the “Stepped Tone Generator”, the Atari Punk Console is one of the most famous and recognizable Lo-Fi synth circuits ever. Using a single 556 dual timer IC with minimal part count, the Atari Punk Console circuit is a solid, time-tested noise generator capable of outrageous square wave madness!

  • Control Voltage (CV) input allows step sequencers and waveform generators to expand the sonic capabilities of the Atari Punk Console from drone to arpeggio-like dynamism. Use any variable voltage source from 0-Supply Voltage for some glitchy goodness! The APC modular version has two CV inputs that modulate the two square wave internal oscillators.
  • Powered by Doepfer style 16-pin header connection +12V
  • 2 potentiometer controls – Pulse Width and Frequency contour the tone.
