Common Ground is a project of KOMA Elektronik and is a place where artists, musicians, engineers, circuit benders and tinkerers meet, build and learn together. With this philosophy in mind, the CC team has released Anglerfish a new DIY drone Synthesizer.

This new synthesizer was designed by Bridget Ferrill and features 6 square oscillators with pitch modulation over light control. An interesting instrument especially for lovers of drones and affordable DIY projects



The Pitch of each oscillator is determined by corresponding potentiometers and the three switches between the oscillators open up light-sensitive connections between adjacent pots. This means both oscillators’ pitches will bend according to the amount of light the photocells receive (LED’s indicate strength of current flowing between the pots) The Tone pot controls a shelf EQ on the master output, with cutoff frequency at 482 HZ and the dangling LED is there for you to use to play the light-sensitive circuit.

Adjust the brightness of the LED with the pot next to it. DRONE/KEYS switch chooses between either all 6 voices playing constantly or voices playing only when activated with key. Use 9V center positive PSU.

Common Ground Anglerfish is available now for 65€ incl. 19% VAT.
