Learn Electronics Design With Erica Synths

US EDU DIY Labor fully-featured circuit design playground is now available      14/06/24

Erica Synths says that you can get started in circuit design with MKI x ES Labor. They say that, developed in collaboration with Dr. Shalom D. Ruben teaching professor for engineering at the University of Colorado Labor is a fully-featured circuit design playground and a powerful electronics learning tool all in one.

A spokesperson told us, "Created with the aim of serving as a universal learning tool for electronics engineering Labor enables users to delve into various aspects of electronics design from fundamental concepts to advanced techniques. Whether you're a beginner exploring the basics or an experienced engineer honing your skills Labor provides a versatile platform for experimentation and learning. Create your own filters oscillators envelopes sequencers – and whatever else you can come up with. Or use it to learn the basics by following along with our series of educational DIY kits."

Here's more details direct from Erica Synths...


  • a built in dual power supply producing eurorack-compatible voltages, with built-in over current protection for safe experimenting
  • a modular interfacing section with 16 slots for potentiometers, jacks & switches
  • a pulse/triangle/sine oscillator (audio & LFO range)
  • a multi mode envelope generator controlled by a premium push button
  • a buffered variable control voltage source
  • an output amplifier with variable gain
  • a dedicated headphone output and a line-level output for recording, processing and analyzing the signal
  • an expansion slot for installing specialized prototyping tools
  • a protective lid to cover a breadboard.


EDU DIY Labor Basic Kit includes:

  • Power Supply Unit
  • jumper cables
  • array of interfacing elements like potentiometers, jack sockets, switches


EDU DIY Labor Full Kit includes:

  • Power Supply Unit
  • jumper cables
  • array of interfacing elements like potentiometers, jack sockets, switches
  • commonly used components (resistors, capacitors, chips, transistors) to start building circuits straight away

We – Erica Synths and Moritz Klein – have developed a series of educational DIY kits under the brand name mki x es.EDU with one specific goal in mind: to teach people with little-to-no prior experience how to design analog synthesizer circuits from scratch. What you'll find in the box is not simply meant to be soldered together and then disappear in your rack. Instead, we want to take you through the circuit design process step by step, explaining every choice we've made and how it impacts the finished module.

NB! All kits in these series are simple and come with extensive user manuals which can be downloaded separately, therefore we will not provide customer support in case your DIY build fails to function or similar.

Pricing and Availability:
EDU DIY Labor Basic Kit: € 170.00
EDU DIY Labor Full Kit: € 195.00
