show and tell for DIYers building instruments based on peter's designs... i'll start w/ a couple recent using PCBs from Meng Qi:

Aluminum Phosphate Crystal Simulation:

Those look awesome and holy cow this led to me going 'what the hell' and discovering the whole paper circuit scene. Blown away - had no idea, gotta try some of this!!

Nice builds, Bbob!

I tried building a Mr. Grassi on a paper board. Never again. I'll have to order one of those PCBs if he still makes them.

I have a Tet kit just waiting to be put together... This has given me some incentive. Hope lots of others will post up pics too.
Nice circuits, nice DIY.

I've studied the paper circuits. Brilliant, both in terms of the circuits and the construction idea.

I went a little overboard with my DIY modular Tetrazzi.

nice building!
curious to see pictures of diy piezo's too.

Yes I still make them. And still at that low price as well.
Welcome shopping.

@fluxmonkey:

awesome work.
My pcbs being used in some best ways.

Especially the APCS, beautiful and impressive!
Reminds me of the pocket piano, but this one is certainly much more noisy. nanners

I've started building a Rollz-5. Right now I just have a few Rolls, but I've been having a blast. I found a cool patch and let it free run for an hour while it wrote a song. I'm taking notes on my build and can post whatever I deem to be helpful once I'm done with the build. In contrast with my super messy Mr. Grassi build, these circuits are going smoothly. It's not really difficult to build these, but requires a lot of patience and strategy if you're after a clean build and don't want to tear your hair out.

Sounds are just a 4-Roll and 5-Roll. No other electronics used.

Here's some preliminary ramblings on my blog, which I plan to update as the build progresses:

solid sounds there!
Repeater


This one's cool. It's a triggered drums 'n drones machine. Sorta reminds me of the Coron DS-8. Thus far all the Rollz-5 modules I've assembled are strangely sensitive to human presence. Walk away and it slowly evolves into new routines, only to quickly cover its tracks and change direction once you get close. The occasional radio bursts make this even weirder. Really creepy stuff.
HueMonContact
@Repeater killer sounds. I gotta start building some of these!
glitchpop
I'll have to post up some of my paper circuits here. I love Peter's site just when you think you've seen it all... woah

Now I have the plans to build these nothing can stop me mwhwhahahahaha twisted

probably all those wire/antennae & the capacitive breadboard help. th paper circuits are all prone to picking up signals... metal enclosures or tinfoil hats can tone down the alien voices, if that seems desirable

I figured as much. In some patches it reacts to motion 2 or 3 feet away. With the resonance high and low "Y" resistor values in the AVDog, radio becomes as a strong a modulator as the pulses. Really cool. I might be into wearing a tinfoil hat, but I actually love this behavior.

My Rollz-5 is finished, aside from one AVDog and tour-proof packaging. I'm planning on setting it up with banana jacks and building in a simple non-inverting mixer. My soundcard is terrible, but this gives you an idea of what it does.

http://soundcloud.com/martin-freem/rollz-5-first-words

In this clip I'm adjusting the cutoff frequencies of the Ultrasound Filters and occasionally pressing my fingers against the back of the Rolls for some subtle rhythmic variation, though in reality the Rolls can do that all by themselves.

Rollz-5 case. Almost road ready.
pugix
@Repeater: Very mysterious looking. applause

Got any pics of the inside?

These are from before any of the hardware was mounted. I still have to solder to the machine screws and jacks. Hoping to get that done in a couple of days so I can start figuring it out.

I'm planning on using the Rollz as my main instrument when I go on tour at the end of the month. Anyone want Rollz accompaniment at their New Years Eve party in the Philly/NYC area?

it sounds great

beautiful work both audially and visually.

Can anyone show the other side of finished Rollz-5 circuit? I'm planning to build this sometime (already have got the parts and printed circuits + instructions), so I'm curious how it looks.
Repeater
Thanks guys. Several nights of staying up until 5am soldering were totally worth it. Next time I might try etching boards for these though because the Gongs and Ultrasound Filters took a ridiculous amount of time to build. I wound up scrapping the 2nd AVDog and 2nd 6-Roll because they didn't fit in the box and because I was content without them.

I'll try to get some pics up soon. My boards aren't super clean, but they got tidier over time.

i have home-etched boards for a couple of the paper circuits. it's not hard, and worth it for the more complex designs, or ones you want multiples of.
glitchpop
I tried home etching some boards (for the first time) using the paper circuits as templates. It didn't work very well I found the tracers were too thin so some of them were broken or didn't conduct very well. I started tracing over one in Illustrator (remaking it) with thicker lines but that was so tedious that I scraped the idea in favour of laborious paper circuit soldering which is far more enjoyable than tracing lines on a screen (to me anyway). YMMV.
