Hi guys! I haven't been here for a while! ...ok....regarding this EXACTA thing.............do bear in mind that I haven't actually said that this will be a product! I posted it on facebook about three, maybe 4 weeks as just a fun 'homer' project for myself...! I have also been aware of the fantastic...

Hi guys- thanks for your comments and thoughts here. Indeed- I feel that it is important to keep folks as to what I'm working as some of the watchers not just on here, but on facebook are actual clients. It's intense work- but the end result will put the synth high up there...! Indeed- @ lovebot - t...

Hi Jakky- 'I heard also a mention of delivery date in Dec. Could you confirm that? I had hoped for an earlier release' - I suspect that you might have got the information from Schneiders/Alex 4? - basically Andreas asked me a realist time for delivery- I said late October....but he has translated th...

Hi etherline!..........do bear in mind the synth is £3K not £4K! :hihi: ...also the M5 is equipped with 3 Audio Oscillators, not the 4 that Elements has!....just keeping the record straight there! In the M5's favour- indeed- it has 2 filters!

Hi Sascha- just back from Berlin! Just saw your question- no, not analogue delay- I didn't go that way. This is a small digital delay that allows the designer to work around different sound types using different part configurations. I experimented with this, and some BBD chips that I had and came up...

One other suggestion that I'd make is to make sure that VCO 3 is not being blended in as a modulation mix- check your controls/switch are not in the modulating positions! Again- let me know!

Best to you- Ken

@ Jaaki and @ Mouse Garden................thanks for you great comments guys!

Hi trickness- indeed, Shawn @ AH put the June 1 date on his website- this came from discussion- I still looking at that date but I'd revise it to June 1 ~ 14...this is realistic. The Micromac had a technical issue that occured at the assembly plant- that had to be resolved, which caused the time iss...

Hi analogue_mike! Ok- to answer your question- the parts that are planned for use with the elements synthesizer will not be changing whether or not it's me or the assembly plant that do this- so nothing will be changing the sound. I plan to build the complex keyboard section myself- the voicing boar...

...yes those parts are going to be expensive- especially the matrix panel. Apart from the parts- it's the workload for me that I'd value my time on- I can't see an outside assembly company building these things economically either. Papz - why not take the Hornet out of it's case to show a least the ...
