Still here...

So far this has been a pretty busy year.  Along with Laurentide SynthWorks, I have a day job that can require a lot of my time.  Some weeks I work fairly close to home and am able to jump on requests pretty timely.  Other weeks I need to hop on a plane and go out of state which keeps me from LSW stuff.  This can really back up the work bench.  Currently, that is the situation.  I have a bunch of stuff in for repairs (1 is a build I did, 6 are not), plus a 4PM that I'm just waiting on the boards to start building.

Of course, I am not complaining.  Not in the least.  I just want to emphasize that LSW is not an "offical" business.  This all started as a hobby.  Just some tinkering in a basement with a soldering iron and a DIY "kit".  I first started building Shruthi's and selling them on eBay.  Then, Mutable Instruments began the "Trusted Builders" list, which I quickly signed up on.  This opened the door and brought in requests rather than me taking a risk and hoping a build would sell on eBay.  Thankfully, I don't have to use eBay (evilBay) anymore.  I get enough requests coming in.

I guess I really don't have a point to this post, other than just getting a post up, as I haven't written one in a while.  

Anyway, I recently completed a MidiSizer MidiALF (Automated Latching Frequencer - not the official title, but if works).  It's a really awesome Sequencer.  Lot's of bells & whistles.  Fairly inexpensive for what it does, as far as sequencers go.  You can find more info here.   There is also a CV OUT board being finalized.

I just picked up a couple of boards from Mad Bean Pedals.  The "Zero Point SDX" Dual Delay and the "Low Rider" Octaver PCB's.  I'm starting with the delay.  I ordered a case from Mammoth and had them paint it.  I'm probably going to paint on the legends ala Z.Vex.  If it turns out good and not too time consuming, I may offer their line for sale with custom painted enclosures.  I'll keep y'all posted.
