Simple kit explained in 3 steps

01. Modular interface

How does your ideal interface look like? The Simple board is modular. You can place knobs, switches and jack sockets anywhere you like. Create the perfect interface for your instrument in minutes!

02. Work with any microcontroller

The socket for the microcontroller has 48 pins. You can connect a Teensy 4.1, a Daisy Seed, an Arduino Nano or any other microcontroller you wish (in this tiny format).

03. Designed for efficient synth prototyping

Each component requires just a single wire to work. Simply place your potentiometer, switch or jack in one of the 80 sockets and use the patch bay to connect it to your microcontroller.

04. Bonus!

We said 3 steps, but just one more thing.

Simple is powered through USB, which is awesome! But, if you wanna add an additional analog circuit to it, you can. There's a little perfboard to help you patch external circuits. With a little bit of creativity you could even make it Eurorack compatible!

PS. The copper pads inside the logo are actually connected to VCC and GND, so you can literally patch into the logo!
