Just recorded a quick demo of an Ambika with 6 SMR Voicecards I recently built.  Seriously huge filter!

On the bench

Going out the door this week:

Also, I finally got around to yanking the Juno-106 Filter Chips out today.  They all work ok, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they start to fail.  Added sockets to the pcb so they can be easily swapped if need be.  Currently in an acetone batch.

Nothing new to post.  Work has been exceedingly busy this year.  Between that and the build requests, I haven't had time to breadboard any idea's.  Maybe next month.

Lots of builds!

Build requests have been coming in pretty regular lately.  There has been a sudden desire for Ambika's!  I'm suspecting the video I posted on youtube that was featured on Matrixsynth aided in that.  Along with this fantastic demo that popped up around the same time.  I have 2 Ambika's ( 1 with 6 SMR's and 1 with 6 4P's) on the bench right now and a 3rd I need to order.

I also just finished a set of 3 Music Thing Modular "Turing Machine" Random Sequencer with Expanders.  This was my first Eurorack experience.  The size can be a bit difficult to deal with at times, but I do like the fact that they are so much smaller than my dotcom modules.  Definitely going to get a case and build up a eurorack modular.

The big excitement is the Sonic Potions LXR Drum Synth that's coming in the mail.  An LSW regular bought 2.  1 for me and one for me to build him!  Really stoked on this one.  I've been needing a drum machine for some time now.

Anyway, back to the builds!
