Needs assembled:

Turing Machine v2
Voltages
Pulses mk2
Penrose Quantizer
Microphonie
Synthrotek VCF
Synthrotek 308
Befaco VCO

Needs troubleshooting:

Befaco Instrument Interface

In my defense, most of the modules on the above list just arrived in the mail this week, so it's a recently acquired backlog. :hyper:
The 8 Steps:
(1) Figure out what it is you always wish you could do with your rig, that you currently can't.
(2) Figure out your maximum available budget.
(3) Look at and research all of the modular toys out there that will make Step#1 happen.
(4) Add an additional 25% to your Step#2 total.
(5) Buy the item(s) found during Step#3, repeating Step#4 as often as needed while completing the Step#5 buying process.
(6) Install newly purchased gear.
(7) Wiggle.
(8) Return to Step#1.

Wish I could. But it's all in a box in a storage unit. Moving soon, had to pack up my office/studio as per the realtor's orders. It's a shitload of stuff. The backlog, that is. Also the rest of it.

808 high hat from Falafular
Buchla 258j

about half of the PCB's are finished, and are just awaiting a panel and testing. But I can't test them because i don't have a bench power supply yet...

I have a box full of breadboards, with various circuits on them, some mine and some clones of classic analog drum circuits. I need to commit to making some of them permanent, but there's just so many ideas needing tried out.

There are some things I generally don't talk about and my backlog is one of them. Suffice to say the boxes for backlog far outweigh my finished items by a factor verging upon the redonculous. :sadbanana:

2x Ryk Sequencers
2x Fonik Sequential Switch
CGS Programmer
CGS Twin CMOS filter
Haible Son of Storm Tide Flanger.

So, basically nothing compared to most DIYers and compared to what I used to have. I'm living proof that a backlog can be caught up and managed.
Initiate the sequence, create catastrophe.

I could slim it down by taking a Ryk sequencer of your hands. I'll be doing you a favor, really. ;)

All I've got is one MFOS sound lab mark 2, all wired and soldered and everything, and the testing phase has taken a phenomenally long time.

Coming in the mail, however, is a bunch of Haible boards, so that'll be a fresh start.

Yeah I would have a lot of ready made stuff if funds were available too. :cry:

I do enjoy the DIY side of things though, electronics has been a hobby of mine for years and I enjoy finding creative uses for my electronics know how. :hyper:
