Making A DIY Electronic Drum Pad

My first DIY explorations were building electronic drum pads, which amazingly work with my Eurorack modular synth to trigger drums, envelopes, clocks or anything that requires pulse.


Voltage Control Lab is the first school dedicated to Modular Synthesis, offering online courses and private instruction in Hardware and Software Synthesis and Sound Design. We are currently enrolling Modular 101: Intro to Eurorack for newer modular adventurers, as well as more advanced courses like Sound Design 101 and The Many Faces of Maths for more experienced sound spelunkers. Join us!

Go look at ‘look mum no computer’s tin foil, drum sticks and 9v battery….but I recon you can do the same with a Maths 2/3 channel. Kraftwerk style.
