All of a sudden I have tons of time on my hands and nothing much to do besides play music and watch tv.
I want to get creative and make synthesisers, oscillators, guitar pedals, filters, pretty much anything music related from scratch.
I even heard that some people have diagrams for Roland hardware.

What's a good entry point for someone that's been soldering modchips and fixing electronics for years and what are some good resources?

Just because you're proud of your 1m cubicle and water-cooler social life doesn't mean we all should.
I quit my job to look after my sick father.

Take care of dad, take up a small hobby that you won't be frustrated to leave sitting on your desk in a hurry.
If it's tabletop, you could try sewing, leatherwork, or electronics. Try /ohm/ or the leather general. If it's paper or modeling you're into, check the catalog, or google.
Good luck with dad. My mother in law just passed in May.

I have a 3 desks at my disposal so I'm fine with leaving stuff till tomorrow, but yeah my father hates the smell of the soldering iron so maybe I could take something else up, but I really feel this is what I want

wanna get into modular diy?
this what i got so far, also a bunch of pcbs and stuff not finished.
sadly I got more in the works than i can fit in the cabinet, so i need to build another.

do you have electronics experience?
if not you might want to stick to full kits for a while.
sourcing components yourself and using protoboard isn't easy if you dont know what you are doing.

pedals are generally easier than synth stuff.
>>
>>1240972
>do you have electronics experience?
I can read diagrams and I've been fixing electronics equipment for years.
Also pretty good soldering

>>1240972
That setup looks pretty neat. What does it sound like?

if the area is near a window just put a fan up to suck out the smoke

Hijacking the thread real quick...

I bought a cheap Casio keyboard a couple years ago, and it sat in my closet for a while. I busted it back out, and the whole length of the keyboard, none of the "E" keys produce sound.

What would cause that to happen? How easy of a fix would it be?
>>
>>1241008
then you are golden.
I started with pedals, then built a few to tube amps.
synth was the logical progression for me as I'm better with circuits than actual music.


>>1241022
depends entirely on what you do with it.

here is a naive attempt at sequencing the untamable benjolin I just built
somehow the bass sequence was not picked up by my shitty phone.

Where did you find pedal diagrams?
and what do you use as an exterior?
>>
>>1241323
>Where did you find pedal diagrams?

these are almost as common as porn on the internet: just google

>and what do you use as an exterior?

real men buy sheets of aluminum, cut, bend and rivet. half-men buy from Hammond. cheap men from the thrift store (jewelry boxes, for example).
>>
>>1241323
googling mostly.
other than that i recommend pedalparts.co.uk.
no need to buy anything from there, full schematic in every PDF.

for enclosures search "diecast enclosure" on ebay.
pretty cheap.
example:

I make panels for the synth with sheet alu, but i cant be arsed to make enclosures when they are so good and so cheap.
I'm an electronics guy, not a machinist.
