The Breadboard TS

April 21, 2017

What do you get if you pair the mini-TS with a 830-point breadboard?

A truley DIY synth experimental kit that is 100% modular. Build it any way you want.

The mini-TS assists you with a keyboard that generates 1v/octave CV and Gate, MIDI and a square wave oscillator and you are free to breadboard your synth ideas at your will.

Works great with any of the chips from but also with any other chips.

The power is short circuit protected and wont brake anything if you make a mistake.

Feel free to connect up any of your ideas for instant playing.

The project is now also up on Indiegogo

mini-TS PCB now available

April 12, 2017

mini-TSbatbox_1024(The base in the picture is the 3V battery box)


Get the PCB and join the DIY build from start.

Order the mini-TS PCB $29

Order the mini-TS PCB + Chip $59

Order the mini-TS Kit $79

Order the mini-TS Prebuilt $99

The same PCB can be built in 3 configurations:

The CV keyboard config
The simplest config is for using it just as a CV/Gate keyboard for modular gear. This mode is selected by shorting Pin17 and Pin18 on the chip.


The WASP config
This config uses CV/Gate/MIDI-IO and 6 external potentiometers for a WASP style synthesizer. This mode is selected by shorting Pin18 and Pin19 on the chip. This is the same config the Tiny-TS uses.


The full config
This uses a rotary encoder and a 128×32 OLED for synth parameter entry. It also has 2 CV inputs on the TRS jack rings and MIDI-IO.


mini-TS preorders

mini-TS – 2 Octave Touch Synthesizer

April 3, 2017


The Tiny-TS got bigger!
Say hello to the pocket WASP.

It now features a 2 octave touch keyboard in 165x65mm.

Still the same great synth engine, CV/Gate output and now also added MIDI IN/OUT.

The mini-TS can be built in a number of configurations  depending on if you want to use it as a synth, CV controller or MIDI controller.

Clickable rotary encoder and 128×32 graphic OLED display for parameter entry.
3.5mm Stereo jack audio output.
3.5mm Stereo Jack for CV 1volt/octave output and 1 CV input.
3.5mm Stereo jack for Gate output and 1 CV input.
PCB pads for MIDI Rx & Tx signals.
(The stereojacks are TRS-type so the CV inputs are on the ring.)

It will be open-source just like the Tiny-TS.

Coming at end of April.

Estimated pricing:
PCB only $29
Full kit $79
Prebuilt $99

Make sure you get one by booking on the preorder list.

Preorder the mini-TS $1
(The $1 will be repaid on delivery)

The Micro-TS – Keyfob Touch Synthesizer

February 28, 2017

If you think the Tiny-TS is small then think again.

The Micro-TS is keyfob sized, 61x41mm but still features the same specs as the Tiny-TS.

It runs on 3V so a CR2016 button cell works just fine.
The analog knobs have a trim potentiometer footprint.
Output is a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack.

It still has CV/Gate outputs but they are just pads on the PCB edge.

Only 50 available in the first batch.

Order the Micro-TS PCB $20

Order the Micro-TS PCB+Chip $40
