I attended the fifth Handmade Music Austin event today. We had a great turnout. We built two devices. The beginner workshop was Bleep Labs’ Pico Paso, which makes interesting beeping sounds similar to an APC. The advanced workshop was the Wooster Audio’s Space Baby. The Space Baby is a fantastic little digital echo board with lots of controls. Even though it is a simple, lo-fi, 12-bit device, it can really add depth to simple electronic sounds. I hooked it up to some very cheesy devices and it makes them sound like a Moog!
