Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? ;-)

I will order the new boards next week and after testing them we hopefully are done. So 1-2 month max.

I have been experimenting with looping with the Key Step pro at the side of my drum kit with a trio i'm playing with... this ittle guy will be perfect to try with this. :)

That polyphonic demo was majestic. Kudos

The boards have been ordered and in the meantime, I made a collection of my dawless jams with 5 proto units. Enjoy! :sb:

Yes! Any estimate on cost of the boards?

This sounds really amazing and I would love to build one. Obviously the front panel is pretty full, but if the enclosure ends up being bigger, I would be interested in the High Pass filter being sweepable, if not voltage controllable. It would really enhance the performability of the synth and would be a great addition to what is missing in old moog synths imo

We did consider CV controllable HPF but that's much more work and goes much further from "the Moog sound". I do agree that this would make it much versatile. We decided to go with Juno style passive HPF, that simple just cuts the unnecessary lows when needed. At the circuit level, this mod is so simple, that it should be included in every synth IMHO. The switch has 3-states, off-ON1-ON2 and you can mod your unit if you don't like the values we chose. Simple change the one resistor and you're done.

I did some tests when playing 4 units in polyphonic mode and this passive HPF will clear the lows nicely to make it fit better to the mix.
