This is a handmade synthesizer based on a stepped-tone generator. What makes it different is the built-in sweeping LFO that gives it an almost automated effect. As well as a low-pass filter that allows you to sweep the high-end in or out.

You have controls for LFO speed, frequency, pulse length, lo-pass filter, and volume. The case is an old repurposed wooden box and some salvaged parts were used.

With a 1/4" output jack it is easy to connect to amps, effects or recording equipment. It is powered by either an included U.S. (N-Type) wall adapter or an also included 9volt battery.
