CGNS - Weird logic noise thing

CGNS, or Canadian Grade Noise Source, is a schematic/circuit invented by me, built around CD40106 and its oscillating capabilities. In case you don't know what's that - you can find a lot of articles on a basic CD40106 squarewave oscillator in the Net. Why the name? I wanted to make a standalone that is easy enough to assemble, is on a single board, is lightweight - in order for it to be whole and safe when it arrives to Canada! (two of my customs got minor damage on their way to Canada, lol). And still to be interesting. At the end of all, we have this 3-oscillator hard-sync-mess with voltage starve and light dependant control, which makes it an interesting tactile tool, too. It makes different stuff, from cycled gabberish squaredrops, to glitches and screams, to drones and tones.

Down there, there are all kinds of files needed for assembling CGNS. The negative is for the bottom layer - be sure that the "SYNTHFOX" writing reads NORMALLY when you place the negative on the board, NOT mirrored!!! But if you are too lazy, you can hit me up at analogpatch@gmail.com - i'm ordering PCBs of this thing from factory, and maybe i have them on hand right now! I can collect all the parts or assemble it for you, too. Price is negotiable, and is not very high~
