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.
If you're just getting started, the Teensy is a fantastic choice. It has a visual audio tool that we're using regularly for teaching basic synthesis and programming in academic courses. The downside is that Teensy 4.1 does not have a professional digital to analog converter. The sound quality is nice, but not premium.
The Daisy Seed is a great choice if you have a bit more experience with programming. It requires a little more setup time, but other than that it can be programmed with Arduino, Pure Data and Max MSP gen as well as C++. It sounds amazing, and many Eurorack manufacturers use it at the heart of their modules!
It is 3U 42 HP, so Eurorack in mind. You can make it Eurorack compatible by adding a power circuit and level shifters for the inputs and outputs.
The sole purpose of the platform is to help musicians and makers design and build professional instruments. The Simple platform is built out of three parts - a community, educational resources and DIY kits.
The first video courses are planned to be released in Q4 of 2022
The first courses will cover the fundamentals of synthesis, programming, soldering and design. After we have the fundaments covered we'll add more courses based on community feedback and needs.
