The box contains all the elements to capture, process and play sound.
The pedals are plugged on the front pannel of the box. The microphone is placed in the compartment at the back of the box.

Wifi / Internet
Sampo can be connected to the internet via wifi. Sampo can thus receive the new configurations of effects and new parts upon request from the musician. Configurations and pieces appear directly in the menu without any intervention and are ready to be used.
Sampo can be transported in two different ways - either with two suitcases, one for transmission and one for the pedals, or in one case (flight case) especially when shipping Sampo by mail.
Sampo weighs approximately 8 kg and all pedals weigh 10 kg. If the elements are all gathered in one suitcase, it weighs around 20 kg in total.
Sampo is manufactured in several workshops in France. First the wooden box needs to be manufactured to contain all the electronic elements:

The box is then varnished and decorated by hand. Each Sampo is unique and original.
