Light sensitive drone synth

Posted in SDIY

This is a classic 40106 DIY drone synth build into an unusual case. I found this old baby-powder-case with all these little holes in the top and figured this would be awesome for a light-responsive synth.

Instead of pots I used LDRs to vary the resistance depending on brightness. Thats basically the whole trick :)

There is a nice video of it here:
