Hey Everyone,
I just completed my first Atari Punk Console. Below are some pictures and samples of what it sounds like. Enjoy.

Here are the schematics for the Atari Punk Console.

Very cool! I like the rugged box that you created it in. You should give us some more info on your other projects as well. Later,

Sorry to revive a topic that's been dead for four or five months, but...

Hey, I'm kind of new to the whole DIY electronics thing. I've soldered a few kits together before, but I've never tried to buy my own components and put something together using schematics.

I'm using those links to purchase the materials for this right now, and I ran into a hiccup.
For C3, the Radial Electrolytic Capacitor, there are three options:

10uf 16V
10uf 35V
10uf 50V

Which one should I buy, and if I run into something like this for the rest of the capacitors and resistors, how should I be able to tell which is the right choice?

Thanks.

I just realized how often this message board gets replies, so I said screw it and I bought a few of each kind.
Now I just have to figure out what kind of breadboard and wires to buy...

Not a problem at all. Grab the 16v caps since you will be using a max of 9v for this circuit. Also, I would recommend assembling this circuit on breadboard. I made the mistake of just soldering it all together the first time without testing and it straight up didn't work. If you do not have a breadboard, allelectronics has inexpensive ones. Here is the link,

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Can any wattage resistor be used? Got a boatload of 1/4, but the APC will be my 1st circuit from scratch, and I'm looking to emulate all the ones Ive seen/heard and not trying to mod anything yet.

Hello and Welcome,
Any wattage resistor will work for this application. I would recommend building it on a breadboard first to test out the circuit and make adjustments if it does not sound right. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Scott,
Is the LED you used also from all electronics? If so, what's the part number?

The LED that I used was simply a 5v UV colored LED. I bought a bunch of them on eBay from Hong Kong. Any 5v LED will work. I simply used it to show that the synth was on. Also, the LED holder was from Radio Shack.
