Atari Punk Console Lo-Fi Desktop Synth


Originally designed by DIY electronics guru Forrest Mims III as the "Stepped Tone Generator," the Atari Punk Console is one of the most famous and recognizable Lo-Fi synth circuits ever. Using a single 556 dual timer IC with minimal part count, the Atari Punk Console circuit is a solid, time-tested noise generator capable of outrageous Square wave madness!

The Atari Punk Console PCB is designed at Synthrotek and manufactured to high-quality specs in the USA!


  • Use a 9V battery or an AC Adapter rated at 5-12V 200mA Center Negative polarity (adapter not included).
  • DC Jack allows for power switching so that battery power is only enabled when there is no AC Adapter plugged in.
  • CV input allows step sequencers and waveform generators to expand the sonic capabilities of the Atari Punk Console from drone to arpeggio-like dynamism.
  • Use any variable voltage source from 0-Supply Voltage for some glitchy goodness!
  • 3 potentiometer controls Pulse, Width, and Frequency contour the tone while the Volume control sets your output just right.
  • The two-way switch powers the unit on or off.
  • Uses 1/4" instrument jacks.
