This workshop combines three of the basic building blocks of the longer
Neanderthal Electronics workshop (TL072 op-amp comparator, 4093 gated
oscillator & LM386 audio amplifier) to create a very crude,
caveman-style analog computer for the processing of vocal input through
a microphone. Participants will learn some analog and digital
electronics basics to create an experimental prototype on the solderless
breadboard, then recreate the circuit with permanent connections. They
are also expected to bring their own box, case or other object in which
to construct the final circuit. The last part of the workshop will touch
on how this circuit can be expanded later on to include all kinds of
mixers, modulators, distortions and filters through the use of other
cheap, easily obtained parts.
