Your digital VCO Smörgåsbord, the heart of your DIY modular synth.

Braids is a popular module for good reason, it packs so much in.

People with a small system will love this, about 40 different VCO models to choose from means a radically different tone can be just a knob twist, or control voltage change, away. Clever programming means that all can be creatively controlled using the same few CV inputs. This is the original PCB layout with super low electrical noise.

Building Braids

Braids is a medium difficulty build. While I wouldn't recommend this for absolute beginners, several people have built this as their first SMD project, after completing a lot of through hole projects (like the Module Tester and Breadboard Friends PCB's).

Here's a Mouser Cart BOM for easy ordering of most parts and for costing your builds. Try ordering several projects at once for lowest prices.

If Mouser are out of stock of the STM MCU used, these are also available from us, see the dropdown menus at the top of this page.

Braids BOM

If the display is out of stock, this alternative is the same size, but has a lower forward voltage, it will need a larger current limiting resistor.

This Module pairs well with:

Ripples, Tides, and Clouds.
