  1. The kit is great, micro sd card interface is the only really tough part, very small. Fantastic capabilities in processing samples. Comes with many interesting and funny samples on the card already from Standuino. I use my Critter and Guitari Kaleidoloop to field sample and record sounds, then I simply rename them and transfer them to the MicroGranny card. The K-Loop samples at the same rate as the MG samples so swapping is easy. Hours of enjoyment inside.
