The workshop lasts approximately 2 hours (Bumsss 3 hours), which also depends on your soldering skills, but the kits are good for beginners. The decision on which device you build, can be made  spontaneously on site.

On Saturday December 4th Leaf Audio is offering a build your own sythn workshop during the Worldtronics 10 trade fair (market) at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt. Leaf Audio offer workshops in the field of sound synthesis and creative use of synthesizers in various situations. This involves several synthesis forms (subtractive synthesis, FM synthesis, granular sythesis) and various systems (analogue modular system, software). All the workshops feature a a lot of hands on practise and experience because this is what makes theory utilizable and often leeds directly to the evolvement of creative ideas.

The Workshop is a collaboration between LeafAudio and Curetronic and is part of the Worldtronics 2010 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin . The Worldtronics Festival is a meeting point for labels, record stores, event organizers, software companies and of course musicans and fans from around the globe.
