Erica Synths & Moritz Klein Introduce EDU DIY LABOR prototyping station


video upload by Moritz Klein

"Disclaimer: I actually created Labor together with my friends at Erica Synths and Dr. Shalom D. Ruben, who's a teaching professor for engineering at the University of Colorado. Either way, it's an awesome entry point for anyone looking to get started in circuit design. (Or a great help if you've already disappeared down the rabbit hole.)"

"Get started in circuit design with MKI x ES Labor! Developed in collaboration with Dr. Shalom D. Ruben teaching professor for engineering at the University of Colorado Labor is a fully-featured circuit design playground and a powerful electronics learning tool all in one. Created with the aim of serving as a universal learning tool for electronics engineering Labor enables users to delve into various aspects of electronics design from fundamental concepts to advanced techniques. Whether you're a beginner exploring the basics or an experienced engineer honing your skills Labor provides a versatile platform for experimentation and learning. Create your own filters oscillators envelopes sequencers – and whatever else you can come up with. Or use it to learn the basics by following along with our series of educational DIY kits.

Features
a built in dual power supply producing eurorack-compatible voltages, with built-in over current protection for safe experimenting
a modular interfacing section with 16 slots for potentiometers, jacks & switches
a pulse/triangle/sine oscillator (audio & LFO range)
a multi mode envelope generator controlled by a premium push button
a buffered variable control voltage source
an output amplifier with variable gain
a dedicated headphone output and a line-level output for recording, processing and analyzing the signal
an expansion slot for installing specialized prototyping tools
a protective lid to cover a breadboard.

We – Erica Synths and Moritz Klein – have developed a series of educational DIY kits under the brand name mki x es.EDU with one specific goal in mind: to teach people with little-to-no prior experience how to design analog synthesizer circuits from scratch. What you’ll find in the box is not simply meant to be soldered together and then disappear in your rack. Instead, we want to take you through the circuit design process step by step, explaining every choice we’ve made and how it impacts the finished module.

NB! All kits in these series are simple and come with extensive user manuals which can be downloaded separately, therefore we will not provide customer support in case your DIY build fails to function or similar."
