DIY Workshop Sucofunk // Beatmaker’s Sketchbook


Build your own Beatmaker’s Sketchbook by SUCOFUNK

Build the Beatmaker’s Sketchbook DIY Kit /// DIY Level: Medium /// Price: 330€

You will build your own Beatmaker’s Sketchbook. It is a portable, teensy based open source sampler/sequencer/groovebox by default. If you have some basic c++ skills, you can use the boiler plate code to create your own instrument from scratch.

In this workshop you will solder 13 components onto the pre-assembled PCBs and assemble them with a few screws into the enclosure. The enclosure has a wooden frame around a plexiglas panel and a metal base plate. All SMD parts are already assembled and you will only need basic soldering skillz to assemble the Teensy 4.1 microcontroller, rotary encoders, potentiometers and a power switch.

The workshop includes all parts (PCB, Teensy, Display, Power module, enclosure) needed to build this device. You will be the proud owner of a portable, premium looking device at the size of a DIN A5 sheet.

The device does not come with a LiPo battery, as it can be powered via a USB C type cable. If you want a rechargeable battery (power module will charge it via USB), you can buy one at the workshop.

The pictures show the prototype. The device you will build at the workshop will come with a precise, more robust wooden frame and different, but similar keys.

IMPORTANT: Bring headphones (3,5mm TRS) and a computer with SD-card reader, if you want to swap some samples onto the SD card to immediately start making beats.

We have got soldering irons and tools, but you are welcome to bring your own.

The prices above are the final prices minus the 30€ workshop ticket (price minus 30€ = rest payment).
