`tune` the hard way via Logic Noise (Supercon '18)

After attending the Logic Noise: Breadboard Your Own Primitive Synthesizer workshop, I thought why not have the badge control the synth?

Getting 40xx CMOS basic logic chips to make music was relatively easy (thanks Elliot Williams) but when I wanted to interface the multiplexer to the badge's GPIO I realized I had to interface 9v CMOS with 3.3v TTL.... enter some hacky MOSFET level shifters. More details (and video) to come.

Awesome!  Can't wait to see what comes of this.

For quick-and-dirty 9V logic to GPIO input, you could use diodes pointing "against" the 9V source (and maybe a pull-up resistor on the GPIO side): the logic chips will be able to pull the voltage down, but will be blocked from sending their full 9V through.

Going GPIO -> 9V Logic though, you'll want a transistor or FET, like you're suggesting.

  Are you sure? yes | no
