The Baby8 is not an instrument in itself, but a controller of a vast array of other noise making devices with a 0-5V CV input. Examples include our Mini Atari Punk Console, synthesizers, drum machines, effects pedals.
This kit is probably not the best kit to solder as a first try, but as a second or third it should be manageable. The kit takes around an hour or two to build and is suitable for all ages (with proper supervision). The only equipment needed to complete this kit is a soldering iron and a pair of flush cutters.
Each step has an associated CV potentiometer, led and switch. The CV potentiometers can be adjusted to emit anywhere between 0-5 Volts from the CV out jack when the step is active. The number of steps can be set between 1 and 8 using the step reset switches (right for reset, left for continue). Or switch to ‘Step Pause’ mode to turn the reset switches into optional pauses to create some funky rhythms! The step frequency can be adjusted by the frequency potentiometer and the gate duty adjusted between 20% and 80% with the gate duty potentiometer. The gate signal can be used as a rising edge to trigger effects/drum machines and often synthesizers use the gate duty as a source for note length.
The easy to follow assembly guide can be followed online or downloaded. The guide contains handy hints and tips to help you along the way!
All our kits are packaged with a cheat sheet which helps you identify the resistors by the 5 colour bands. We are available to help with any questions you may have, just get in touch and we’ll respond ASAP
Add a set of connectors to your kit to bring the Baby8 and mini APC together for all sorts of fun which you can see in the video demo further down the page. The set consists of two strips of pin headers and 5 multi-coloured jumper cables for connecting power-sharing, 2x CVs, Gate and Ground
