After a very long and painful episode at Cyndustries I quit .... all designs I worked on needed more or less major electronic rework ... but more importantly, all SMT designs work perfectly within the electronic parameters ... since i never saw any money ($2,000 for 2 years of work) i keep the rights on the design ... thought you might want to know that ... I'm now working with another major Synth manufacturer and pretty sure you'll see more of my work soon ...

hmmm, more bad cynthia press. seems it has been a while since i last read any of that. sort of unsurprising (sadly). which modules did you do? who are you and where do you hail from?

Good luck and my your best effort saturate our cabenits!

I was just about to post a thread asking about Cyndustries. I seems that the website hasn't been updated since the beginning of this year, her ebay sales seems pretty dried up, and she seems to have sold off a big chunk of her modular. And no progress on the new modules (4-filters for example).

It seems to me that she is more or less out of business already?

There's a huge clusterfuck of a thread about her problems.

The more I read about Cynthia, the more she sounds like a street-person who hasn't quite made it to the street. If I'd worked for someone for two years and not got paid, there would be literal hell to pay.

I can't help with a specific name for the OP, but this interview names a few individuals who were working for Cyndustries at one time:

(About half way down - 'who is the team')

A little diligent searching on e.g. LinkedIn might track one or more down.
