Beaks is a really low cost version of the Mutable Instruments Peaks module. Using only thorughhole components this makes for an easy kit you can make yourself. One way to make this kit so cost effective is to remove the DAC circuits that are one of the most costly components in the MI modules. Instead a technique called Dual PWM is used to get almost the same high quality output. The STM32 chip is solved by using a generic STM32 development board that can be bought on aliexpress, ebay etc... TO BE CLEAR THE STM32 IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT.
It is built upon the wonderful work of Emelie Gilet of Mutable Instruments, along with the modification of Mathias Levy who removed the DAC and used dual PWM instead. This PCB and panel set was designed by me. As per Emelie's request this is ofcourse fully open source as her open sourcing her work made this possible. So if you prefer to order your own sets of PCBs and panels you can find all information needed in the below links:
Link to Mathias Levy's Github where you can find the STM32 firmware: https://github.com/matias-levy/peaks
Link to my Github page with gerber files for the PCBs and panel if you wan to order your own from a PCB manufacturer. you will also find an iBOM file here to make placing components even easier: https://github.com/SourceryOne/Beaks/
When I was researching throughhole versions of Mutable Instruments modules I found Mathias Levys version and thought it was amazing. Although lacking the PCB-set to make it. So I went of to make that PCB set and this is the final product of that journey :)
This is a REALLY lowcost version of one of Mutable Instruments versatile modules. Because its low parts count and extensive use of the PWM feature of the STM32 this makes for a really nice addition to your diy modular arsenal.
