Apologies for the lack of updates on the blog but we’ve been busy sourcing components for this build and resolving a number of minor issues.
The first 10 units are almost fully built.
There’s just 110 buttons and 20 MIDI sockets to fit.
After that, it’s :
A 2 day powered bake at 45 degrees centigrade to weed out any failures.
Baking the boards also has the advantage that it evaporates the traces of blood, sweat and tears that went in to the making of the boards. 🙂
There are a few software tweeks to make, then it will be time to mount the units in enclosures, make some final checks and finally, offer them for sale.
We hope/expect that it will be around the 20th of May for sale offering but we have to say that this is an engineer led company. This means that if we find something that we’re not happy about, we don’t have CEO, marketing and sales telling us to ship when it’s not ready. We decide when we feel it’s good to go.
We are grateful for your patience with us.
