Description How To
 

The Nebulophone is an Arduino based synthesizer with a stylus keyboard that can be played through 6 octaves using the shift button. The programmable sequencer function lets you record, play back, and manipulate custom arpeggios for musical awesomeness. 5 waveforms and tons of options including the "hidden" HYPERNOISE 30xx mode will have you making your own unique electronic music almost soon as you put it together. Perfect for beginners, advanced builders, and electronic music lovers that are tired of being limited by the typical Atari punk console. Watch the video to get a feel for all the capabilities of the Nebulophone.

Requires soldering, a cord with a 1/4" mono plug, and an amplifier (computer speakers work well.)

Nebulophone a fun kit but watch out October 19, 2013
Reviewer: Charles Shapiro from Avondale Estates, GA United States  
This kit went together for me with very little pain.  There is one Trap for the Unwary however. It's where you place the two electrolytic (can) capacitors on the underside of the board. There are **three** sets of square/round holes there.  You want to solder the caps into the two pairs which are labelled "c3", not the one nearest the support leg.  That one has a through-plated hole in it, and the other two have proper solder pads. The spurious hole pair appears to be a left-over place for the stylus wire.  It's not referenced in the instructions, which show the stylus wire attached near the keyboard pads at the bottom edge of the board. I did nothing with it and my Nebulophone worked great the first time I powered it up.

I was kind of dissapointed... October 23, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I can't give a full review, because I never got to finish it since when I got it it was missing 5 capacitors and an IR emitter and an IR detector....

Great Kit & Excellent Musical Noise Toy October 19, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Sacramento, CA United States  
The Bleep Labs Nebulophone is a great electronic kit for those who are experienced with or newcomers to soldering. After it's assembled, it's capable of making a wide variety of sounds, it has a sequencer that can trigger different arpeggios and lets you enter your own note sequence, and it can serve as the master sync source via infrared for kits in the Andromeda Space Rocker lineup (http://handmademusic.noisepages.com/2009/10/introducing-handmade-music-austin). Thumbs fully up for the Nebulophone!
