Eurorack Prototype Boards

Create amazing DIY Eurorack modules, without the wait

N8 Synthesizers Eurorack Prototype boards are the complete solution for building rack-ready prototype and DIY Eurorack modules. 

Replicating the classic breadboard layout with the durability of through-hole soldered construction, N8 Eurorack Breadboard drastically speeds up the synth module design process, and the grid layout of N8 Eurorack Control Decks provides an adaptable control layout for your next DIY synth module. 

Mount your latest Eurorack module with our pre-drilled panels and finish with a print-at-home label. Oh…and no more waiting for that PCB prototype to arrive from the foundry.

From concept to case in no time at all

Undoubtedly, the satisfaction of designing and building your own DIY Eurorack modules is second only to patching them in and rocking your rig. In designing N8 Eurorack Prototype Boards, we aimed to create the ultimate system to speed up the design and build process for rack-ready prototypes and DIY Eurorack modules.

Sprung breadboards are great for testing ideas, but let’s face it, they’re too fragile for Eurorack, with 3.5mm jacks randomly popping off under the weight of patch cables, loose connections, and stray capacitance, all complicating debugging. Stripboard synth modules go some way towards solving these problems, but how do you mount your controls? If you’re like us, you fire up KiCAD design a couple of custom PCBs and then sit back and wait, and wait, for that slow boat from China to deliver.

With a stash of N8 Eurorack Prototype kits in your workshop, you can wake up dreaming of a new Eurorack Mixer and have it built and in your case by bedtime. 

You can never have too many VCAs

But you can certainly have too many VCA PCBs. Low-cost, low-volume PCB manufacture is wonderful, but, as Eurorack DIYers, we often end up with stacks of unused boards thanks to PCB foundry minimum order quantities, mistakes, and multiple design iterations.

We think N8 Eurorack Prototype Boards strike the perfect balance between the creative freedom of Veroboard synth modules and the roadworthy robustness of custom Eurorack PCBs.

Wired circuits let you change things and fix mistakes quickly, cutting out the lag of reordering or re-etching a new PCB to make a minor amendment. N8 Eurorack Breadboard is designed for debugging, and you can iterate your design and test it in your rig without breaking your creative flow.

The layout of the N8 Synth Solderable Breadboard for Eurorack showing the compact power rails, edge connectors and Eurorack power header with filter capacitors

A breadboard designed for Eurorack

We know space can be at a premium, so we’ve slimmed down the traditional sprung breadboard to slot neatly between the rails of a 3U frame and maximise the space for your DIY synth circuit.

N8 Eurorack Breadboards are just 10HP in width and available with or without provision for a 16 Pin Eurorack power connection and filter capacitors. They can be stacked using 2.54mm pin headers for complex 10HP modules like the classic CEM 3340 VCO or mounted at 90 degrees from an N8 Eurorack Control Deck for 4HP, 6HP, and 8HP modules.

N8 Eurorack Breadboards follow the basic layout of a sprung solderless breadboard. However, we’ve combined the ground and +/-12V power rails in a space-saving alternating pattern and added edge connectors to securely attach an N8 Eurorack Control Deck.

If you still want to try things out on a sprung breadboard, not a problem; once you’ve got the layout locked in, you can recreate it on an N8 Eurorack Breadboard with no intermediate design step.

Control the Matrix

Standing proud above every N8 Eurorack Prototype Board, you’ll find an N8 Control Deck for Eurorack. Control Decks come in 4HP, 6HP, 8HP and 10HP widths and feature a matrix of Jack-Pot-Switch control cells. Each control cell can host a 9mm Alpha RD901F-40 style potentiometer, 3.5mm PJ-3001F jack, sub-miniature SPDT switch or LED.

Control Decks are connected to the N8 Eurorack Prototype Breadboards using 40-pin headers, mounted at 90 degrees for 4HP, 6HP, and 8HP modules or flat for 10HP. You could also use them with sprung breadboards to keep those jacks firmly seated.

Pre-drilled Eurorack Panels

Topping off every N8 Eurorack Breadboard module, you’ll want a pre-drilled panel to match the layout of your chosen Control Deck. Using our label templates, and an inkjet printer, you can unleash your inner Jony Ive and dress your next DIY Eurorack module to impress – not to mention covering any unused holes.
