From experience with many Mozzi projects now, we have found a basic set of audio components and connectors is required in every project, and building this basic platform over and over again is a pain. So to reduce that pain we have created the MozziByte shield for an Arduino Pro Mini.
MozziByte has a digital audio amplifier, phono socket, speaker pins, battery connector, power switch and prototyping area for connecting sensors, knobs, and switches.
We need to order a minimum of 100 MozziBytes to make it cost effective to produce as a PCB+assembly board.
If you would like to order a MozziByte and support this initial production please visit our Kickstarter and share it with others who may be interested.
MozziByte allows designers, artists, musicians and students to rapidly prototype and create innovative and imaginative sonic products, sound art installations and custom synthesisers by providing the core audio components needed in every project.
MozziByte amplifies your sonic creativity by providing an audio hardware platform that lets you focus on designing sound and interaction, rather than fiddling with breadboards and tangles of wires.
