Synth music met a new standard with the introduction of EuroRack synthesizers. Maker Rory Allen is using a Raspberry Pi Pico to take things a step further by opening the modular world of EuroRack synths to the creative benefit of an open-source module known as the EuroPi.
The goal was to provide an open-source tool for developers and artists in the DIY synth community. The EuroPi PCB was designed by Allen and features 4 analog outputs as well as 4 digital outputs.
The module can be programmed to create custom effects and changed again at any time to create a custom synth experience.
The PCB files are available to anyone who would like to recreate or modify the board design. Allen even has plans to sell pre-built modules for those who may not want to solder the board together themselves.
