As a teacher I get that question a lot. You'd be surprised how easy it is. The kit includes the easiest parts to solder -pots, sockets and switches. The manual covers some tips and tricks, and a video course is coming soon!
Simple is designed to fit in 3U rails. It’s 42 HP, which will make for a nifty standalone synth as well. You’ll need to add your own Eurorack power and additional circuits, like buffers for inputs and outputs. Use the perfboard at the bottom right to add the circuits necessary.
