Keeping tabs on relative humidity and temperature is important in a variety of situations. The DHT22 is a recent contribution to the lineup of joint humidity/temperature sensors, and is particularly attractive to DIYers thanks to its low cost. Uncover its secrets to get it working for you.
Build a MIDI to Logic Controller
October 2012, Page 32
Ever dream of building your own MIDI device? This nifty unit will convert MIDI on and off signals to logic levels which is useful for things like firing analog music synthesizers or clocking drum sequencers. However, you won’t have to deal with assembly language, complex programming circuits, or microcontroller architectures.

Analog Music Synthesizers
January 2006, Page 57
There is no doubt that synthesizers have changed the face of music over the past 30 years. Synthesizers’ initial impact was in the area of “academic” music, since their almost brutish size, extreme complexity, and exorbitant cost fairly much confined them to university settings. But as interested experimenters became more familiar with the concepts of electronic music, and the linear integrated circuit revolution kicked into high gear, homebrew analog synthesizers started to pop up..
Spreadsheet - The Forgotten Analog Design Tool
October 2006, Page 59
Nowadays, there’s a ton of software kicking around to greatly simplify the design and construction of electronic circuits. Packages to capture schematics, perform simulations, lay out printed circuit boards, and so forth, abound. The trouble is, most non-professionals can’t justify the typically stiff expense of these,especially when not used on a daily, income-producing basis...
