One last thing and we call it cards
All MIDIS come in two models. The aluminum cased models and the bare circuit board models, which we call cards. The cards are the essence, the bare circuit board, but hold all the exact same functionalities of the cased MIDIS.
The only difference is, these cards demand you to 3D print the casing yourself. By doing so, we keep your ecological footprint smaller and our price a bit more affordable. The casing files can be found on the Download page.
