Build 4 Oscillators Out of a 4093

Besides the 40106, we can make a set of 4 oscillators using the 4093 ic.   We just tie one of the inputs on each trigger to power.  Or you can set up a chain where Oscillator A triggers Oscillator B when A's output brings one of B's inputs High.

A switch works great too;  just wire a SPST switch between power and input 1 in this example.  If you had a momentary switch, you can "play" or gate each oscillator to your liking.

A number of people have built "nand synths" around this principle.  When you're done with your lunetta, you will have 10 times the mojo ;)!
