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 http://www.dspsynth.eu 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.

mini-TS PCB now available

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.

miniTSconf1

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.

miniTSconf2

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 – 2 Octave Touch Synthesizer

April 3, 2017

Render

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.

Featuring:
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.
