I’m taking an electronics workshop at the Machine Project. Today we made some simple square wave synths – which is totally awesome – except mine failed to work right. I tried with two whole sets of components, to no avail. Sometimes it would work better if I touched certain parts, or moved my hand over them. At one point, I was picking up Spanish AM radio in my circuit. Maybe my fake tooth was affecting things. Even the teacher was baffled, since everything looked right.
Oh well, I got it to work at home tonight (with no modifications)… joy!
