Control Presents Intro to Soldering & DIY Electronics Assembly (Sunday)
Do you want to dive into the world of DIY kit building, learn the basics of soldering and other electronics assembly tools, how to identify synthesizer components, and what to look for when someone puts a circuit board in your hand?
Led by electronics expert Christopher Puidokas, this class aims to provide foundational knowledge to beginners wishing to develop their skills to work with electronics. It will cover subjects such as proper tool selection and usage, basic part recognition, soldering, establishing a technical mindset, safety, and standard kit assembly.
In this workshop, each participant will be guided through the preparation, assembly, calibration, and trouble-shooting of a Eurorack module build. For this session, we'll be working through the Random*Source NCOM, Serge Divide by N Comparator module. NCOM is a rare, much sought-after and very essential Serge module covering a number of functions: comparator, voltage-controlled pulse divider, and voltage-controlled staircase generator.
The goal of the class is to have every participant leave confidant in their ability to solder, and critically go through the process of organizing and assembling a DIY project.
The cost of the class includes the random*source NCOM kit, materials and instruction. The class will take place on December 16th from 10am-2pm at Control, 416 Lorimer St. #1L, Brooklyn, NY 11206.
