In February 2010 Befaco was created as an open hardware platform focusing on professional DIY musical hardware, materializing their previous electronic, musical and artistic research.

Their main activity has been developing and publishing their modular synthesizer system, nowadays migrated for compatibility to Eurorack format. All this public research is published under CC-NC-SA License, so people can build all their designs during their regular workshops in cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, London or Berlin or download the schematics, and technical assembly guides, to make their variations of the projects.

These workshops are a huge test playground where they can track each module being built by different Befaco users, get direct feedback from them and quickly improve each section with new ideas, develop new modules, perfect existing ones or adapt these units to users demands constantly.

Direct contact with DIY enthusiasts allows an implication of users in the structure. Allowing them to design their modules, reworking existing ones and/or adding new features of their own. This has developed into an incubation environment for new modular initiatives, allowing different makers to start similar projects.
