Out of the box, Big Honking Button will give you a nice "HONK!" every time you press that delicious button. However, the fun doesn't stop there. You can easily connect this module to your computer with a standard USB cable (the USB port is on the bottom of the module) and it'll show up as a tiny external drive. You can then put your own samples onto it and even customize its behaviour.
Big Honking Button is a fun, simple way to add a flexible little sampler to your setup.
Because the Biog Honking Button runs CircuitPython you can customize quite a lot about it- you could turn it into a random gate generator, for example. You can load multiple samples and have the CV in select between samples, or just play a random sample. There's lots of possibilities here & there's several examples in the user guide.
Customization is super easy thanks to the way CircuitPython works. You just connect a standard USB cable to your computer and to the USB port on the bottom of the module and it'll show up as a small external drive. From there, you can edit code.py and change how it works as well as load up new samples. It's basically a little computer that has a gate in, a gate out, a -5 to +5v ADC input, and a -10 to +10 audio output with 10 bits of resolution.
