The AM8005 is working well just some fine tuning on the BP mode and then into production. The AM8012 final prototype will be tested at the end of June, so both modules will be available to purchase in 4 weeks time.

A new demo of the AM8012 is online and some great demos of the AM8005 will be online at the weekend. Both modules sound excellent.

Athena filters will be going onto the new online store at the weekend and this will greatly improve customer service as you will be buying from stock we have ready to ship rather than built to order.

8005 SH-5 Filter Clone has been post-poned at least 15 times. I wouldn't count on it but I really hope it will be released this time.

Reservations are no longer taken, but if you register on the web store for an email alert when stock is available for this module you will know instantly modules are for sale. AM8005 sound demos will be online this weekend.

I have a question on the AM8012 ARP2600P Filter: in the second half of it's Audio demo I heard some influences of noise. Is this a result of the filter's resonance charakter or is it mixed in by the audiomixer?

The demo uses an AM8012 in my ARP2600 clone and there is some noise creeping into the track, possibly via the VCA. I am recording some new demos of the production AM8012's and they are very clear and will be online this week.

Hi,
The first batch of AM8005 modules are being built now, along with a new run of AM8071 Mark 2 modules, so you will see them on sale over the next 2 weeks. I will post here once we have them on sale.
