we are releasing today Pepper, a DIY solution to bring Bela into your Eurorack setup. Pepper comes as a PCB with a bill of materials: it's up to you to source the needed components and solder them all together. You can source your own faceplate, or buy one from our shop as an add-on to Pepper. Then, you will plug in your Bela kit and ... off you go!
Here it is what it looks like: on the left you can see the bare PCB, and on the right you see what it looks like once it is fully assembled.
All the components needed for the kit are through hole, and they are mostly passives (except for an optional power regulator), making for an easy build. There is lots of room for customization, and different power supply options as well. The input and output voltage ranges are limited in order to keep down the cost, size and keep it simple to build. Check out the wiki page for more details, or buy it now on our shop.
At the same time, we are also re-opening pre-orders for Salt. Salt is the Eurorack module we released as a limited run last year. It's a fully-fledged Eurorack module with full-voltage ranges, and breakout for the USB ports. Salt is now available again for pre-orders, until July 1st. Once the pre-orders will close, we will start the manufacturing process and deliver it in the early Autumn. A full write-up on Salt is available here, or you can go to our shop to
buy it now.
