Abstract

This paper explores the use of bespoke printed circuit boards (PCBs) for enhancing Do-It-Yourself (DIY) making of electronic sound devices. With the tools and manufacturing costs now within reach of amateur makers, the production of PCBs for DIY projects can add stability and reproducibility to the growing number of custom instruments used in ubiquitous music projects. The article discusses the impact of maker culture on the custom development of electronic musical instruments, and how incorporating PCB design can extend these developments. Several case studies are described and lessons from these for DIY makers are outlined.
