What’s included

The Bela Starter Kit comes complete with everything you need to get started: Assembled Bela unit (Bela cape + BeagleBone Black), 2 audio adapter cables, and a USB cable. Your Bela unit arrives assembled and pre-flashed with the latest Bela software.

The hardware

Bela’s hardware features make it ideal for connecting to sensors and devices, as well as connecting to audio sources and outputs:

  • 2 audio input channels
  • 2 audio output channels
  • 16 digital I/O
  • 8 analog inputs (16-bit)
  • 8 analog outputs (16-bit)
  • 2 speaker amplifiers

Your Bela unit has 4GB of internal memory, and comes flashed with the latest Bela software. Want more storage? Add a 16GB SD card flashed with Bela software to your order.

Bela is compatible with a range of products, including the Multiplexer and Audio Expander capelets, the PEPPER DIY synth module, the CTAG multichannel series, and all Trill sensors.

The software

Plug Bela into your laptop and access our browser-based IDE, and start coding with C++, Pure Data, Supercollider, Csound and more using our dozens of on-board examples covering everything from synthesis to sensors.

The Bela IDE also features an in-browser oscilloscope for visualising, examining and understanding your sensor signals, and GUI functionality via p5.js so you can create on-screen controls for your Bela system, or control on-screen visuals using Bela’s analog data or audio output.

About Bela

Bela is the platform for building beautifully responsive interactive projects with sensors and sound. Bela is used worldwide by thousands of musicians, educators, artists, designers, and makers for musical instruments, interactive art, compelling teaching, responsive sound installations, effects boxes, and much more.

Bela is designed to make high-performance computing accessible for creative people. Connect Bela to a huge number of sensors, program it in your browser in your language of choice, then embed it into your project to add interactivity and sound to your creations.

Bela and Bela Mini are identical in terms of the software they run and their performance. The difference between them is in their physical size, and a couple of hardware features. Here’s a comparison chart:
