Description

The K Control Mini from Alt Circuits is a simple desktop controller that provides I/O and some useful interface options for the Ksoloti core PCB in a small form-factor.

The K Control Mini features:

  • 3 x assignable main knob controls
  • 1 x assignable centre-detent trimmer control
  • 2 x LED Buttons (Blue and Orange)
  • 1 x RGB LED
  • MIDI In/Out via 3.5mm Jacks (Type A )
  • Stereo Audio In/Out via 3.5mm Jacks
  • Headphone Out via 3.5mm Jack
  • Powered via USB

The Ksoloti Core is a rework of the discontinued(?) Axoloti Core board. In short, Ksoloti aims for maximum compatibility with the original Axoloti, with some layout changes and added features. The Axoloti Core hardware board became unavailable at some point, but because Johannes graciously open-sourced the schematics (and since the global part shortage somewhat improved) it was possible to recreate a board nearly fully compatible to the original: enter the Ksoloti Core.

Using the Patcher software on your computer, you create your own sound patches by placing and connecting sound objects, or explore patches other users shared. You can edit any existing patches and even objects, or write entirely new ones from scratch. When you are satisfied with your patch, you can upload it to the Ksoloti Core’s internal memory – or save a collection of patches on SD card – so you can play it without your computer connected.

The fun really starts when you connect pots, buttons, LEDs or displays, sensors and more to control your patches and make Ksoloti a tactile and highly playable hardware instrument, and this is what the K Control Mini has been designed for.

Full information on getting started with the Ksoloti can be found on Ksoloti github here: https://ksoloti.github.io
