Today I finished building the Elektrosluch instrument which should be able to create sounds by detecting electromagnetic fields. I followed the picture tutorial then checked with the schematics afterwords to see if all was well. An emphasis was made to follow the engineering principle of “measure twice, cut once”, in order to minimise the risk of problems.
One of the things I am missing is a multi-meter, which I do not have at home. this would have aided me greatly when it came to troubleshooting, for example a continuity test would have been able to pinpoint problematic areas within the circuit.
Here is a website describing the continuity test: https://www.fluke.com/en-gb/learn/blog/digital-multimeters/how-to-test-for-continuity
