The assembly of a Lock-In digital Amplifier (LIdA) from widely accessible ready-made modules is presented. This equipment, which does not require any advanced knowledge of electronics or programming, may introduce the experimenter to resonant techniques by registering mechanical resonances. The freely available control program allows for general data acquisition and further data processing. The apparatus is versatile and may corroborate the science and engineering laboratory in elasticity measurements or in a series of experiments where a modulated signal is a prerequisite.
