Evaton Technologies SDIY MDRONE Kit Announced at Knobcon 2015

"Evaton Technologies announced the upcoming SDIY MDRONE kit at Knobcon 2015 this weekend. The SDIY MDRONE is a DIY kit consisting of a bare PCB and parts kit, that implements a 3-oscillator standalone desktop drone machine with adjustable bandpass filter and filter overdrive.

Kit features:
* 3 independent square wave oscillators (pot-controlled, not CV)
* On/Off switch for each oscillator
* Adjustable filter bandwidth (Q)
* Adjustable filter center frequency (Fc)
* Selectable filter overdrive On/Off, which creates gritty, dirty distortion in the filter.
* Volume knob
* Line out, with build option for Eurorack-level audio.
* 9V battery operation, with very low current drain; perfect for electro-busking
* Assembly manual with theory of operation; great for educational users
* Patch points for circuit-bending, and additional hints in assembly manual for more circuit bending ideas

Construction is all thru-hole components, and can be assembled in an evening by experienced kit builders, or over several evenings for those just getting started in DIY.

Evaton showed the SDIY MDRONE at Knobcon, constructed in a see-thru pencil case. Final kit will be available as either PCB + parts, or as PCB + parts + pre-drilled case (production case is not see-thru).

Available Fall/Winter 2015. MSRP TBD, but will be under $100 for the full PCB + parts + case option, and less for the PCB + parts option.

Watch for further details in the next few weeks."
