Brand New GUI

It’s finally here…

The brand new Ronin GUI – now written in ANSI C for multi-platform compatibility and easy installation.

Thanks to all the early adopters who passed on their feedback – we want the Ronin 802 to be as useful and user friendly as possible, so keep it coming in. And don’t forget, the Ronin 802 is an open project, so if you want to contribute please do!

Grab yourself a Ronin, try out the GUI, and let us know what you think!

Check back soon for upcoming video tutorials…


New GUI and Videos

Here’s a sneak preview of the new Ronin GUI. We’ve been writing it in ANSI C over the past few weeks and it’s nearly ready. It has extra features, will be more compatible with different operating systems, and will be much easier to install.

Keep checking this website for an update of when it’s available for free download.

We’re also bringing out some video tutorials to go with the new Ronin GUI. Drop us an email on info@sonodrome.co.uk if there’s a specific tutorial you’d like to see, and subscribe to our Youtube channel to see all the new videos as soon as they come out. In the mean time you can check out “Setting up for the Ronin GUI” to help you get started:

Available To Buy Soon

The Ronin 802 synthesizer shield for Arduino is coming soon!

So far we have produced five different versions of the Ronin 802, and we are now in the final stages of the design process. Over the next two weeks we will be scrutinizing the hardware and taking suggestions from the electrical engineering community for possible improvements. At the end of this two week period we will be ordering a final production prototype. Once we are happy with this prototype, the first batch of boards will be manufactured and will be available to buy before Christmas.

The Ronin 802 will be available to purchase online through this website.
