Dreadbox Dysmetria - DIY Build
Known for their unique and limited edition synths, Dreadbox has done it again with their latest synth, the Dysmetria. A two part analog groove synthesizer, the Dysmetria has a lot going on in a small 42hp footprint. Since we just completed the Dreadbox Dysphonia, it only seemed natural to take the Dysmetria on right after for our second build of the fall season.
As described by Dreadbox, “Dysmetria uses a subtractive synthesis mode, where 2 VCO’s and a White Noise Generator are summed up into a 2-pole Filter (Low Pass or Band Pass). Then a simple VCA follows. Only 2 Decay envelopes are available, one for the Amp and one for the Filter or the VCOs. Also the powerful FM circuit, helps a lot with its percussive sound”.
Let’s get on with the build….
The Dysmetria kit is rather extensive and consists of a lot of components. You will want to utilize several tools for the build itself. Make sure you have a good iron and plenty of solder. A multimeter to help measure values will also come in very handy.
