Synthrotek Passive Ring Modulator Kit: Build & Demo

This isn't really CBG-related but it is certainly DIY (and it will teach you what a ring modulator is if you don't already know).

I recently bought one of the passive ring modulator kits from Synthrotek. It's a fun little circuit. In this video, I go over the build process and do a few audio demos.

You can purchase one of these kits here:

I feel like there’s a handful of us who want it to happen and another group that emphatically doesn’t. Nobody is right or wrong. It’s all just opinion. As they say… there’s no rules in love or music. Lol.

I agree Kale! Which is why I watch your videos, I never know when those worlds will cross, but I’ll be ready when they do.

Thanks Doug. I know a lot of the folks here are more woodworkers than electrical experimenters but I feel like those worlds cross from time to time.
