Drum Kit Kit OCHO


Make your Arduino into a drum kit with eight drum pads! This kit is easy to build and very customizable to meet your tinkering needs.


The Drum Kit Kit OCHO is an upgrade of the popular Drum Kit Kit and Drum Kit Kit-AI, supporting up to eight drum pads. (up from six with the DKK-AI) The Ocho is a great choice for both tinkerers and musicians. The OCHO is even easier to build, the circuit comes pre-soldered, programmed and tested using surface mounted parts. You only have to solder the connectors.

On board note assignment, expansion port, and hackable with the Arduino IDE, with digital pins to spare the DKK Ocho is an awesome and customizable MIDI controller.

Connect to a MIDI sampler, or directly to your computer using our free to download Serial-to-MIDI software solution, or a standard MIDI-USB interface.

The DKK Ocho has connections for up to 8 drum pads and has the Roadie (optional on the DKK AI) built in. This version comes mostly built (like all of our drum kits, you get to make your own drum pads).
