Note the Vibrati Punk Console kits are no longer available - these pages are kept for reference and interest. You can find the schematics and source code in these documents, but the PCB designs are not currently public.

Build Step 6 - Add the Variable Resistors

There are four variable resistors that control the sound of the Vibrati Punk Console. These are soldered in a row on one edge of the circuit board so they can be mounted on a control panel if desired. There are two different values of variable resistor. The value is labelled in text on the case.

Identify the resistors as shown:

Variable Resistor



VR1, VR3 and VR4

470k Ohm

“470k” or “470k


470 Ohm

“470” or “470R” or “470

Put the variable resistors through from the component side of the board and solder the pins on the back. The control shafts for the variable resistors should face away from the board. The knobs provided will push-fit on to the variable resistor shafts.

Congratulations – you’ve now finished all the key components on the board. You now just need to mount the speaker, battery connector and power switch which connect to the board externally.
