Keyboard Builders' Digest / Tips & Tricks


Keeblab by edoelas. A controller-agnostic prototyping setup.

The idea behind this invention is to be able to make changes in software and wiring really easily, allowing to try different controllers, make a huge split or convert it to a midi piano to name a few options.

Right now it is using a black pill v3 as the controller. my opinion the best controller if we consider the price: 5€. Plenty of IO and power, lots of options, small size and USB-C. Also provides access to the USB via pins.

We've seen well-documented breadboard setups in the past, e.g. the Protoboard(s) by BillyBuerger.
