Daisy: An Embedded Platform for Music by Electrosmith

Having raised more than five times its funding goal on Kickstarter- Daisy is an ‘embedded platform for music’ from Electrosmith that can be used to create SynthsEurorack modules, Guitar pedals and more. What’s the best part? It’s accessible from just $29!

You can use Daisy however you want, but at the core - it offers two channels of 24-bit/192kHz audio (you can add more if you wish) and full support for USB MIDI I/O. It features an STM32 ARM Cortex-M7 CPU running at 480MHz with internal 32-bit floating-point processing, and 64MB of SDRAM. They promise low latency (less than 1ms), full compatibility with the Arduino platform and a suite of software libraries and documentation. 

To show you what Daisy is capable of, Electrosmith has used it to create four devices, all of which are available as rewards. There’s the Pod breakout board ($79), Petal guitar pedal ($299), Patch Eurorack module ($329) and Field desktop synth ($399). You can also get the whole lot for $999.

Ultimately, though, it seems that Daisy is designed to inspire you to code your own devices, and the standard audio development board - costs just $29. If you’re ever had the urge to build your own custom hardware devices, it could be just what you need.
