Pianos – Keyboard and Synths Archives | Music Instrument News

Erica Synths announces the latest module in its mki x es.EDU series: mki x DIY Snare Drum. The new DIY module is fully featured with sound shaping and CV controls, and offers a step-by-step walkthrough of the entire circuit design process.

No drum machine is really complete without a punchy, snappy Snare Drum, and together with the Kick, it creates the rhythmic backbone for most grooves. So for our percussion-focused second season of educational DIY kits, we knew we had to come up with a Snare circuit that would complement the Kick and Hi-Hat we’ve already released. After a lot of fine tuning, here’s what we came up with: introducing mki x DIY Snare Drum.

Erica Synths and Moritz Klein’s educational DIY kits (mki x es.EDU) were developed with with one specific goal in mind: to teach people with little-to-no prior experience how to design analog synthesizer circuits from scratch. Rather than just soldering and racking, these kits were mean to take users through the entire circuit design process step by step, explaining the rationale behind every circuit design choice and and how it impacts the finished module.

Each mki x es.EDU kit is simple and is comes with extensive user manuals which can be downloaded separately — this is in lieu of customer support in case your DIY build fails to function or similar.

The mki x es.EDU Snare is available now in the Erica Synths Shop and priced €65. For more information, please visit the Erica Synths site.
