This item comprises the two PCBs (main board and control surface) that form the basis of my open-source ARPIE MIDI Arpeggiator project https://www.tindie.com/products/hotchk155/arpie-midi-arpeggiator-kit-1/
The boards are factory made PCBs with plated through holes and black and white soldermask as shown in the photos. The surface mount parts on the reverse of the upper board (74HC595D x 2) are included and pre-soldered.
If you are an advanced electronics tinkerer and/or want to build multiple ARPIEs this item may be a better bet for you than buying the pre-packaged kit with all the components. Perhaps you already have components or want to take advantage of cost savings and economies of scale in sourcing your own parts.
The parts list is shown here https://github.com/hotchk155/arpie/wiki/Hardware-Information
Photographs of the parts are available here https://github.com/hotchk155/arpie/wiki/Kit-Contents
Please note that you will need to program the firmware on the Atmega328 and (to use external synch) the PIC12F1822. Firmware is freely downloadable but programming hardware is needed. Alternatively you can purchase pre-programmed chips from here and here (select ARPIE Ext Sync option)
Firmware source code available on Github
BoostC source code for PIC also on Github

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...
