ARPIE is minimal, compact, hackable MIDI arpeggiator
An arpeggiator it is a device which takes chords (From a MIDI keyboard, for example) and converts them into rapid sequences of notes, which can then be played through MIDI-compatible synthesizer hardware or software. Arpeggiation is a very common technique in electronica and chiptune music and is an excellent creative technique.
With an ARPIE kit you can build your own fully-featured arpeggiator for much less than the costs of a commercial hardware arpeggiator. In your ARPIE kit you will receive two, high-quality printed circuit boards and all the components and hardware required to assemble the device, including two ready-programmed microcontrollers (Atmega328 and PIC12F1822). A PP3 is required for battery operation (not included) or you can run from a DC supply.
Soldering is required to complete this kit. Surface-mounts will be pre-soldered so you will only need to fit the through-hole components. The boards you will receive are white with black print as pictured.
So... here is the low-down on what your ARPIE can do:

The basic ARPIE device is a minimal bare-bones design, however it is designed to be easy to customise, reprogram and expand. ARPIE utilises Arduino compatible open-source firmware and an openly documented hardware design.
PLEASE NOTE: ARPIE is a MIDI Arpeggiator and requires separate synthesizer software or hardware to be connected to it to make sound. It does not make any sound by itself!
