Every professional needs the right tools to get the job done. When you’re Doing-It-Yourself, it’s easy to limit what you can accomplish by using dinky soldering irons and sitting on crappy stools. There’s no perfect setup, but we’ve got lots of tips from years of getting it wrong! Learn from our ignorance and don’t make the same mistakes!
Check out new two-part tutorial that will help take your electronics experiments to a whole new level!
Over the years, I have greatly benefited from the generous work of the open source community. Whether it’s a reverse-engineered schematic of a early 70’s drum machine to source code for the Arduino, there is a lot of unpaid work that I have used for my hobbies and my work.
As a token of my appreciation, I am making the official DIY Audio Circuits Eagle CAD Parts Library and Schematics available to the general public. Many of these custom-built parts and circuits have been manufactured and tested, while others were for demonstration purposes only. Please feel free to download these files and use them for whatever purpose you see fit.

I’ve added some new schematics to the Schematics page. There are a lot of simple circuit snippets and some more advanced guitar pedals and analog/digital synthesizers.
There’s more cool stuff to come here on DIY Audio Circuits, so come back soon and be sure to post comments/send messages to see the content that you want!
Get ready for a great article!
I’ve been working hard to get all of my schematics off my computer.
My next release is the famous Atari Punk Console!
Maybe i’ll do some Arduino stuff after I get this site fleshed out!
Anyway, just going to leave these notes here:
arduino based atari junk arduino can store the serial data that would make sound effects like a kaboom or a missle strike. make it an arduino library! use a 4014 for a parallel in serial out shift register - this circuit takes samples stored on the arduino. the arduino then sends these samples out on a couple of digital lines that the 4014 loads parallel. Once they are loaded, then the circuit puts out the loaded values serially and loads another once the last sampled bit has been processed serially. # some obnoxious pseudocode Ex. 01 load 1101 02 serout() -> output = 1,1,0,1 03 register is cleared and load is enabled 04 get sample 05 load 0010 06 serout() -> output.total = 1,1,0,1,0,0,1,0 07 goto line(03) # I'm using a goto idgaf
