Mikrophonie Workshop - Sunday 11th September 2022 - 11:00-15:00

from Tripping on Wires


Mikrophonie is a microphone preamp with a piezo contact mic built into the panel.

Music Thing Modular's Mikrophonie (musicthing.co.uk/pages/mikrophonie.html) has been generously released as open hardware and these PCBs have been manufactured directly from the files provided (note, the is the old design, not the black and gold one on the link). It's a fairly simple build and therefore an ideal starter module for DIY. We will assemble and build the complete module, mount the panel, and affix the piezo contact mic. We'll also make a DIY power connector and test that it works properly before you leave.

It needs a Eurorack power supply (+/- 12V) and I'd recommend mounting it in a case. Check out our FC Power workshop if you want to build a power module from scratch.

No previous soldering experience necessary. All materials, tools, and equipment will be provided. The workshop will last ~4 hours but we'll keep things laid back so, if you're booking trains or anything, please give yourself a reasonable buffer.

The studio is on the 3rd floor and only accessible via stairs. Trafalgar Studios, Trafalgar Warehouse, 118 Trafalgar Street, Sheffield, S1 4JT.

Groups will be a maximum of 4 people. There'll be good ventilation and it would be better if participants do an LFT test before attending.

Booking tickets early is greatly appreciated (to help with ordering materials) but if you're worried about paying up-front, please email and we can try and make arrangements.

Feel free to ask questions.
