Many of you have been asking when the next batch of SamplerBox PCBs will be available and we're pleased to announce: soon! Joseph, Pavel and AlexM have been quietly working on a Raspberry Pi hat that you can purchase without having to get your hands dirty with soldering irons and tiny electronics components, and just get to making music quicker and easier! In fact earlier this year we successfully manufactured and shipped a small batch of beta units to some very happy enthusiasts.
PCB manufacturing and assembly is a costly process, so we're going to need your help. We'll be launching a crowdfunding campaign soon where you'll be able to pre-order a SamplerBox PCB, or just contribute some money because you love SamplerBox ;)
