Developed in collaboration with KORG, manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, littleBits‘ newest invention – the Synth Kit – lets users build their own electronic musical instruments and create new sounds.

littleBits is the maker of an open source  library of electronic Bits™ modules that have magnets allowing them to snap and connect together to create fun pieces and prototypes. The perfect gift for music enthusiasts and newbies alike, the Synth Kit will let users experiment and create their own sound equipment, even without engineering knowledge or skills.

The new Synth Kit comes with twelve various electronic Bits modules. The modules included in the kit are power, oscillator (x2), filter, envelope, delay, keyboard, micro sequencer, mix, split, random, and synth speaker, which can connect to live or recording equipment. For those who may need a refresher, the kit also comes with a booklet containing step-by-step instructions for ten projects.

Builders aren’t restricted to just one Synth Kit to create an instrument, and can let their imaginations run wild by using any other Bits modules to add light or mechanical installations to their project.

The Synth kits are available on the company website and will ship starting December.
