Bleep-o-tron synthesiser kit
A sound synthesiser using a dsPIC digital signal processor. Every MadLab kit includes a professionally-manufactured printed circuit board, quality electronic components and full assembly instructions. (Think Ikea - Airfix!)
To build a MadLab kit you will need some basic tools. You'll need a soldering iron with a fine tip, some solder, a pair of wire cutters, and most importantly some safety goggles. You might also find if useful to have a solder sucker. This is indispensible if you make a mistake and need to unsolder a component.

MadLab is a unique, hands-on electronics kit, perfect for those interested in electronics & music technology. The kits we have all specialise in making noise, that you can make.. Put yourself in our JOYO shoes... You solder electronic components onto specially-designed circuit boards and make it yourself. The excitement of MadLab is learning how to use a soldering iron, gaining an understanding of electrical components, and actually being able to make a gizmo all by yourself, with the aim of making some kind of musical instrument or a working electronic circuit to impress..
