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.
ARPIE's firmware has been improved with version 4, which adds several new features. Here is the low-down on what your ARPIE can do:

NOTE : I do not sell ready-assembled ARPIE's myself, but midierror does so in his Tindie Store with my full agreement.
Need a case for your ARPIE? look no further...
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!

I am an electronics hobbyist from Brighton UK. I love playing with microcontrollers and doing interesting things with MIDI and analog noiseboxes. Lots of new ideas in the pipeline so watch this space...
