how did you learn how to make this stuff?
got a basic electronics book (can't remember the name, but it's basically the premiere intro book and is hand-written. it's weird)
tinkered a bit. could make sound generators. hit a stopping point.
took a class at the community college.
It's not going to take you too far as a hobby, you'd need to specialize in it. I haven't played anything live in almost two years but I used to take this stuff live and it was generally reliable and usable. I've made one synth with keys (basically gutted a $5 goodwill casio).
I'm pretty ambitious about this stuff but I've been doing it for like 5 years and still am fairly limited. I also still won't play with higher voltages so I can't make anything really portable for fear of killing myself or starting a fire.
yeah i've been thinking of taking a course here at night and picking up a book
or maybe starting with some of those stomp box pedal kits or something... i dunno.. i can solder but can barely read a circuit flow chart and have no concept about what really does what
