Audio Artist AKA Todds black box was Need help remembering

Post by GrantB »

Last night I was remembering a circuit I breadboarded some years back, it was a few twin T filters controlled with pots and depending on how you turned them it would make all kinds of rhythms. It had a name and there were a couple videos but I can't remember what it was called and can't seem to find the schematic in my files.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this post just now from Todd Barton



That's got to be the same thing. Anybody remember what it was called?

I don't know what it's called but I would love to see a schematic or stripboard layout for this. Is it twin-t drum circuits being triggered by an LFO?

Ok, I found it in my files. It's a project called the Audio Artist from Popular Electronics magazine.

Also found the old video that made me want to build it in the first place:
