Same here,

after a year waiting i wanted my money back (£148) and now im waiting since then. He said he will refund when he get paid in june but nothing happened. Now he´s not responding anymore.

First group buy ever and thats a negative one. I don´t think that i will buy anything here again. Thanks for nothing.
I do feel sorry for you, but could you please be careful in expressing your frustration? You did not and can not buy anything "here" ... you bought it from a certain member of this awesome forum.

good luck!

ElectricGhost Please PM me. Jammie said he has refunded everyone that asked.

Also these will be restocked shortly, but no longer through us. Only Through our distributors AMS, Synth Cube, and Modular Addict.

Prices will be higher than through Jammie, but this will eliminate anything like this happening again.

We are not adjusting the panel for the sequencer to accommodate the divider pcbs. Jammie has decided that he would like to build a separate box so that those who would like to keep the sequencer looking as stock as possible can have that. Currently the enclosure for the divider PCBs has not been drawn - we've been hard at work with the 208, the 2600, and Polyfusion modular and Keyboards (With Ron Folkman from Polyfusion - NOT clones!!!).

We placed the order for the 1601 sequencer PCBs with Polyfusion so those should be here in 4 to 5 weeks.

We do have divider PCBs for sale. The old fab house messed up the order, so you actually get 2, one to practicd your smt skills and one "good" one. The one that was messed up has a white screen on a white mask. Nothing else wrong with it, it's just hard to read.

well, thanks for that. it would've been a noble gesture to notify me (and possibly others) about the promised panel not happening. especially since it sounds like you are selling the divider PCBs i designed. what's the retail price of the PCBs, if i may ask?

We don't set retail price, I think we distributed it to modular addict for a few bucks but they haven't even put it on their website yet due to their backlog.

Also Jammie said there was not enough interest for a panel. He had about 3 requests. Everyone else wanted to drill themselves and add a sticker.

fair enough. still, i would have appreciated a simple note that it won't be happening. i've provided quite a bit of support to jammie so i don't think that's too much to ask for...

I understand. Jammie said to give him a mail.

On the pcbs - he left all credit to you and fonik. We have given a bunch away and he hasn't really made anything on his investment. It was literally a couple bucks for MA and SC and that was 2 pcbs - one good and one with a bad mask.

I believe we are supplying a set for a door prize at knobcon.

If you’re on Facebook, and I appreciate not everyone is, then Jammie is now conducting his business at his group page J.M.LOGAN SYNTH RESEARCH/UTTER NUTTER RECORDS. If you’re not a Facebook user then I’ll talk to him to see if we can arrange sales by email or some other way.

I understand there’s one last round of DIY kits happening at the moment, and from the end of that they’ll be fully assembled units. Korg has expressed an interest in it apparently and may license it. I’d have thought they’d have taken a dim view of copyright infringement but apparently not, much to their credit.
