Future Plans

Post by emuarc » Fri Sep 23, 2011 11:53 am

AMSynths are now a full time business which means our manufacturing capacity has increased significantly and we have the time to design, document, record and ship fantastic modules to our customers. PCB's and hard to find components will also be stocked and we are a distributor of both SSI and Alfra chips.

The 2019 plans are (UPDATED 30 December 2018):

SH05 Synthesizer and Modules
Full set of seven Euro Rack modules that replicate the SH-5, including LFOs, VCOs, VCFs, VCA and ADSR/AR. Can be used in 107HP Waldorf KB37 orany euro rack case case.

SH03 Modules
Both the diode and transistor ladder filter in Euro Rack.

SH07, JP08, JP06, JP6 Modules
The SH07 VCF, re-issues of the Jupiter 6 and 8 filters, as well as the Jupiter 6 Dual VCOs in Euro Rack.

Jupiter 4
Euro Rack modules of the LFO, VCO, VCF, VCA & ADSRs and a programmable 2 voice Pro MARS.

CEM based modules
Re-issue of the AM8320 Prophet Filter and AM8310 Dual ADSR, as well a a new Dual VCA and Dual VCO.

Somebody needs to consider doing the ARP Sequencer too...

Dear Rob,

As owner and lover of AM8109, AM8060, AM8705 and AM8071 I just get excited by announcement of AM8105 in your latest development plan
:yay:

Originally expecting a large SH-5 filter module you told me that it will be split into three modules AM8005 VCF, AM8002 Mixer & Ring Modulator, and
AM8006 Band Pass Filter. I miss AM8002 and AM8006 in your latest plan ....

By the way - do you still sell PCBs?

Anyway - I can't wait holding next modules in my hands.

Keep on giving us your sonic magic :hail:

Hi folks,
Details of the AM8105 are now online:
http://www.amsynths.co.uk/Products/AM8105/am8105.html

The AM8002/06 will arrive later in 2012.

Unpopulated PCB's are available for sale, contact me offline for details. It is not a popular option as many of the parts are hard to source externally such as the panels and slider potentiometers.

More SoundCloud demos will be available over the next few weeks.

June Launches
AM8060SE JP6 VCF with VC resonance and JP6 buttons, prototype being built and tested now.
AM8012 ARP 2600 style LPF, demos to be put online

Later in 2012
AM8047 UAF - next module to be tested.
AM8105 Super JX - VCF, HPF and VCA
AM8336 PROD/egy Low Pass Filter
AM8706 LFO and Modulation Source

Future Module Plans as at July 2012

Post by emuarc » Thu Jul 19, 2012 2:07 pm

Hi folks,
Progress in 1H2012 has been slower than hoped, due to a busy day job and the time taken to perfect the sound of an AMSynths module. The latest EuroRack module development plan for 2H2012 is looking like this:

Existing Modules
AM8109 JP8 VCF nearly sold out but 20x available from August.
AM8705 Dual ADSR in stock and shipping, 5x in stock.
AM8319 Diode Arrany VCF first 10x sold out, next 10x due in August.
AM8071 SnowFall VCF sold out. More in the Fall.
AM8075SE Athena VCF in stock, our first slider VCF!

Online Store The store is now live and works really well for customers and me, stock levels will be updated on 21/07/12. Emails go out automatically to customers who have requested stock notifications for their chosen module. Apologies for the low stock levels, they are selling out real quick.

2H2012 Launches
AM8012 ARP 2600 LPF, next module into production in August. Sounds great, after spending this week tuning the design.
AM8019 ARP 2600 VCA, prototype ordered. This module should get into production quickly.
AM8005 Multi Mode Diode VCF in final stage of testing.
AM8027 ARP 2600 VCO in final stage of testing with new sync circuit. This is a big priority to get launched.
AM8060SE JP6 VCF in final stage of testing.

Later ....
AM8047 UAF.
AM8105 Super JX - VCF, HPF and VCA. Limited run of 20x
AM8336 PROD/egy Low Pass Filter. Moog like.
AM8706 LFO and Modulation Source
AM8715 Dual ADSR aka AM8705 in smaller format.
AM8020 ARP Style ADSR and AR.
AM8372 Ambient Filter - aka Matrix 12 VCF.

Many thanks for your patience and interest in AMSynths products.

Hi Rob, I see that the AM8047 has been pushed off the list.

Is the development for that on hold? will we still be seeing it in the future?

That's one I've been very excited about so hoping it's still coming sometime in the future.
