The Slidersynth II

It’s back for an upgrade! The original Slidersynth was just a perfboard with a few components including a button a small speaker and a brass tube. By pressing the button a square wave signal is output to the small speaker. As the user moved the “slider” in and out of the bras tube the frequency changed up and down.

With version II I’ve added a second potentiometer in the place of R2. This serves as a pitch control.

This is the original schematic:
