You need solder, a soldering iron and a variety of screw drivers.

The Price
To make one controller costs about 500$. Only at a scale of 200 pieces can we lower the price to about half that. We would love to offer it even cheaper, but it is not possible without significant loss of quality. So many rotary knobs and encoders have their price, as well as the front panel, the circuit board etc. Nevertheless at about 4E per knob of this controller, it is not more expensive than other midi controllers..."
