Warbler Punk Console

Introduction: Warbler Punk Console

About: Evil Mad Scientist, Atari Punk Console Maker, Avante Garde Contemporary Artist, Air Metal Musician

This is my second project in an enclosure. It has two different circuits inside and two different power supplies. Although each circuit is connected to the same speaker. https://www.instructables.com/id/555-Mind-Mangler/
I liked their circuit so much that I decided to mangle it and make it interactive and even more annoying. It's easy to due, I just followed their schematic in the video to make my first one on a bread board. Then I got bored with it and wanted to add some interactivity. I sorta turned it into a single 555 atari punk console. I suggest hooking up 3 speakers for the best effect. But my box could only fit one.

Step 1: Download the Fritzing File

Download the Fritzing File and look at how it's connected on a Project Board.
It should be easy to follow.

Step 2: Prototype Time

In the schematic on the Fritzing file I added connections for additional speakers. This is also optional. I also soldered all of this to a nice little 300 point solderable breadboard I got from allelctronics.com. Buy one here. Pictures will be posted soon.

Step 3: EMI From Cardboard?

For some reason when I put the circuit into the cardboard box, it would either not work or do some weird things. Could it be EMI? So I made this holder for the circuit board out of Super Mini Dice I got from dx.com

Step 4: Extra Features

There are to wires connected to the each of the buttons contacts with bare contacts on each of them. They make a distortion sound when not pressing the button if you touch one or both of them. Also I used a 500K potentiometer. You can use 470K if you want to.

Step 5: Add an Additional Circuit

I also added this ramsey kit the Mad Blaster Warbler Alarm.

on the schematic:
U1 = 4011 IC 14-Pin DIP
R3 = 100K Potentiometer
Q1 = 2N3904
Q2 = JE200

Step 6: Put It in a Nice Box.

I didn't take any pictures of this step. This was only my second project in a project box. Originally it didn't even have the Warbler circuit.
