Synthesist & developer Dan Goldstein shared this short example of a rare vintage Aries modular synthesizer in action.
Aries made a line of module designs available, both pre-built and DIY, in the 70’s and early 80’s. There’s a ‘lost’ website devoted to Aries systems available via the Wayback Machine, and modularsynthesis.com has shared a copy (pdf) of the Aries 300 System manual.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
