    Hi all, been a while.

    I have been busy going through Make: Analogue Synths. I have just finished my Noise Toaster.

    I am wanting to make a ribbon controller for the external vco input but I can't seem to find build instructions or a schematic, has anyone got a good link for me please?

    Cheers. Yes that looks accessible to me, I will begin ordering parts. Can I use VHS (blank) for this, I've seen that mentioned elsewhere. I love that it can be two tones.

    I know nothing about MIDI but I keep seeing it mentioned. If I understand this schem It should just connect straight into my External VCO jack.

    I will post pics as soon as I can.

    After reading around It seems that the Paia schem doesn't work. I'll keep searching. Could I not just replace a pot in a 555 PWM with a ribbon? would be a single tone, the noise toaster has a gate so i woldn't have to think about that.
