Analog SynthiMuse

Connected the first analog variant of the SynthiMuse to my old ARP2600.

If sounded good but I’m not happy with the accuracy so replacing the DAC in the design with a 16 Bit device. Updates as soon as we’ve made & tested the changes.

Analog Outputs!!

We’re just completing design adjustments on the analog variant of the SynthMuse.
The unit will have 1V/Octave, Velocity, Gate & Trigger 3.5mm jack outputs.
The signals are fully EuroRack compatible.

We’ve also been testing it with our 1976 ARP2600 and we’ll be posting a video in a few days showing the SynthiMuse driving the old ‘Grey Meanie’. Stay tuned.

Batch 2 Progressing

Batch 2 progresses well. The 10 survived being stressed at 50 degrees for a week.
Some final test and they’ll be ready for boxing up.

As soon as they’re ready we’ll get in touch with the people who have expressed an interest in buying. After those units have sold, we’ll offer to the whole mailing list before advertising the remainder of the batch.

After that, it’s time to sell the next 10!

4 Deliveries made. Some software changes

Hi All

There are now a modest 4 SynthiMuses out in the wild!

Customers have been mostly positive in their comments but they’ve asked for a couple of additional capabilities and have spotted a minor bug.

1. No MIDI channel could be assigned.
This has been fixed. Manual will be updated.

2. When the SynthMuse was clocked by external MIDI, there was no ability to generate 16th notes. ( A major oversight on our part ! )
This capability has been added. We’re just trying to decide how best to present it: should it be as well as the existing speeds or should we throw out the ‘1/6’ speed and replace it with the ‘1/4’. The problem with this is that the front panel graphics would be out of sync with the functions. We’ll come to some arrangement.

3. Minor bug: Occasional stuck notes when triggered by external audio.
Fixed.

Once we’ve checked our software changes, we’ll send out updates for the four existing units shipped and all later units will run with the updated software.

We’ll be in touch with the next group of people on the mailing list to offer the next units.

Best Wishes

Gerry Murray
