Atari Punk Console + 10 Step Sequencer
The Atari Punk Console is a tone generator and coupled with a 10 step sequencer, it can generate a sequence of notes in succession. The sound produced sounds very similar to a MIDI keyboard and this can be enhanced to be used in the music industry to create music and digital sounds. I decided to work on this project because it was both fun and practical. The potentiometers on board have differing functions. The ones on the front change the note frequency coming out of the decade counter. On the back, the one on the left changes the frequency of the 555 astable clock pulse generator for the decade counter which makes the notes play quicker. The one in the middle controls the frequency and pulse width of the overall sounds being produced and the one on the right is for volume.
