MakeProAudio has introduced its new MPA-Platform created to help build scalable pro audio gear, offering a “you make audio gear system” for Musicians, SynthLovers, Producers, Performer, DIYers and audio anarchists says MakeProAudio. check out the video below to learn more about the MPA platform that “empowers anybody to build professional quality audio gear with never seen before control capabilities – all it takes is a Screwdriver”.
“Think of the MPA Platform as the LEGO ® system for building pro audio gear, where anybody with the interest is empowered to build gear that’s unique to them and only limited by their imagination. Build the audio mixer, synthesizer and control gear you need. Expand your EuroRack with never seen before modules and functionality all using the MPA-Platform. Depending on your needs and the audio solutions you seek. You choose from a wide offering of premium quality pre constructed components (electronics and mechanical) Tile modules, that you assemble into Blocks to provide the function you want.”
Everything you need comes in a “Makekit.” Including instructions on installing a Raspberry Pi that runs GLUE and ties everything together providing the essential network connection. “GLUE is the IoT-age control software running over the World’s first truly agile Network Distributed Software Framework for All-Things-Audio. With new found ease of access and control of your setup, the whole network becomes your instrument.”
The first individual Maker boards and MakeKits are expected to start shipping in a few months time during June 2019, although final pricing has not been announced as yet it is expected that “all-in box-MakeKits” will be available for less than €200. With additional Audio, Control and Connect tile modules for use in building larger scale projects and other audio solutions, will be available later this year.
