Have fun building the Oskitone Scout open source Synthesizer

 

San Francisco-based DIY synth maker Oskitone has introduced the Scout, an Arduino-compatible square wave monosynth.

 

A mini square-wave sound machine for DIY enthusiasts. It might not be the most versatile synth in the world, but there is no denying the cuteness.

 

Controls are limited to a 17-note keyboard, a volume knob and an on/off switch, so hands-on tweaking is out of the question, but the Scout can be hacked if you are that way inclined.

 

This Arudino-compatible monophonic synth is proudly “no-frills”, and can also be purchased fully assembled ($125), but surely part of the fun is going the DIY route.

This brings the cost down to $65, and if you’re happy to 3D-print your own parts, you can pick up the Scout for as low as $42.

  • 17 keys

  • Satisfying “clicky” tactile switches
  • Built-in amplifier, speaker, and output jack
  • Powered by 3 AAA batteries
