Welcome to the Synth DIY wiki

Synthesizer do it yourself, Synth DIY or SDIY. This is a community wiki for learning and sharing knowledge about designing, making, modifying or repairing electronic musical instruments and related equipment. The emphasis is on the electronics of audio and music technology.

The SDIY wiki is a collaborative endeavour and requires your input. Use this wiki to collate your information about synth DIY and related crafts. Create a login. Editing is not difficult, See the quick start tutorial at Help:Editing. However your first edit can't include an external link or the anti-spam-filter will block your IP address.

Unfortunately on Wikipedia rather than improve or help to fix there are admins who are quick to delete any article that does not meet some vision of quality. It is very easy to be critical and delete the work of others. On this wiki articles can be respected because the authors are acknowledged experts in the SDIY community and their contributing original content is welcomed.

In December 2017 the wiki was moved to Miraheze hosting and user IDs could not be taken across. If you had a login on this wiki before then you will need to re-register.
